volunteer with us!
Volunteers are at the heart of our success. Whether you are putting up walls, speaking at an event or loading an antique into a customer’s truck, you'll know you're making a difference for a local family in need of a decent place to call home.
Volunteer on our build site
Our Habitat homes are lovingly constructed almost entirely by volunteers, with the support of dedicated, skilled Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa staff. It takes many hands to build a Habitat home.
We have opportunities for skilled and unskilled volunteers, just visit our build volunteer page for all the details.

Volunteer at our ReStores
When you help out at Habitat ReStore, you help your community. ReStore proceeds cover a portion of Habitat Greater Ottawa's operating costs, so your donations can go directly toward building affordable homes.
Volunteer at one of our three local ReStores today!
Volunteer in our office
Interesting volunteer opportunities exist for students, recent graduates, working professionals and retirees to help out in our office on a variety of projects. We also support internships where possible!
Volunteer at an event
From our Gala to third party events, home shows, and more - there's something for everyone! It’s always different and always fun, physically active and engaging work.
Volunteer safety is a top priority for us, it is for this reason that we have age restrictions for our volunteers. We do not accept volunteers under the age of 16. Volunteers between 16-18 may volunteer on the build site, but they must be accompanied by an adult who is willing to work alongside them.
We are also always in need of food donations to help feed our hard-working build volunteers. Whether you can provide a lunch for 15-20 people or have leads on possible lunch donors, please contact Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-749-9950 ext. 229.
