Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County

At Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County, volunteers are the cornerstone of our mission to eradicate substandard housing. Each nail driven and wall painted is part of a larger story — a journey to homeownership for families in need. Whether you’re wielding a hammer on the build site, serving a hearty meal to our hardworking volunteers, or assisting in our ReStore, your contribution is a vital part of this transformative process.

Who Can Volunteer?

Make a Difference in Your Local Community

Everyone is welcome! Whether you’re a seasoned builder, a helpful hand at our ReStore, or have never touched a toolbox, your efforts are invaluable. Our variety of volunteer roles ensures there’s a place for everyone.

Construction and Site Support

Get hands-on by helping with tasks ranging from framing and painting to landscaping. Safety is our priority, and no previous experience is necessary as training is provided.

ReStore Volunteer

Join the team at our ReStore to assist with loading, unloading, and organizing donations such as furniture, appliances, and cabinetry. Our ReStore is a crucial part of our fundraising, and your help in daily operations supports our broader mission.

Committee Involvement

Join one of our vital committees like Family Support, Construction, or Development, and contribute to the strategic side of our operations.

Youth Participation

Young volunteers, particularly those aged 16 and 17, can engage in general construction while adhering to safety guidelines. However, certain restrictions apply to volunteers under 18 to ensure their safety on site.

Volunteering with Habitat is as simple as 1-2-3

2. Prepare

Once registered, we'll provide you with all the necessary safety training materials. Remember to dress appropriately for construction work — closed-toe shoes are a must!

Safety is our #1 Priority

Safety is a priority at Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County. We ask that each new construction volunteer prepare for their experience by reviewing the following safety videos.

All Volunteers Must Watch these Safety Videos
