Helping build a decent place for all to live
Habitat for Humanity began as a grass-roots effort, and thanks to the commitment of countless volunteers, it’s become a movement dedicated to providing safe, decent, affordable housing for families who lack adequate shelter.
Habitat welcomes all volunteers
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Providence has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers, supporters, and program beneficiaries from all backgrounds.
Volunteers are at the heart of Habitat’s work. Because of our volunteers, whole neighborhoods improve and completely transform. Through this transformation, families achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life.
We build and repair homes throughout the year, and we want your help – whatever your skill level is!
Construction & Repair
As a volunteer with our Construction or Home Repair teams, you will work with skilled Habitat staff, future Habitat homeowners, and Greater Providence area homeowners on a variety of home building and home repair projects. We provide all of the training and tools you need for the job.
Construction and Repair opportunities are Wednesday through Saturday, 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.

Other Volunteer Opportunities
Habitat welcomes volunteers for a mutually beneficial experience. If swinging a hammer isn’t your style, we welcome your help on committees, with administrative work at our office, as a photographer, and more.

Group and Corporate Volunteering
Bring your company, team, organization, or school to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Providence for a day of volunteering and fun.
Your group can make an important contribution to Habitat’s mission of building and repairing homes in partnership with families in need.
Your group invests in Habitat’s mission by sponsoring a Team Volunteer Day through a tax-deductible financial donation.
Your contribution helps Habitat cover the costs incurred by your team of 10 volunteers and pushes our affordable housing projects closer to completion.
Team Volunteer Sponsorships usually begin at $5,000 per day and Service Days (reserved for nonprofits, schools, service and faith groups) at $1,500 per day. However, because of the COVID19 pandemic and new restrictions, sponsorship costs will be made on a sliding scale.
Why do we ask your team to donate? On average, each Habitat house costs $200,000 to build, and each Home Repair project costs an average of $17,500. Individual and group contributions are our most important source of funding, and your donation helps us supply materials, training, and supervision. Funds can be raised by individuals, companies, or through matching funds and other grants. We are happy to provide fundraising ideas.
