Habitat for Humanity of La Plata County couldn’t accomplish the work we do without the help of dedicated volunteers. Countless hours go into each Habitat home, but volunteer opportunities are not limited to construction work. Opportunities include serving on committees, helping in our ReStore, providing lunch to hungry construction volunteers, and participating in a limitless variety of events.
HOW DO I VOLUNTEER?
Our BUILDThe homes built by HFHLPC are ENERGY STAR® Certified, meeting or exceeding federally-set standards for energy efficiency from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s program for ENERGY STAR-Qualified Homes. Our construction crew strives to attain sustainable building standards. Participating on a Build day is a truly rewarding experience.No experience is necessary and we supply the tools and materials needed to have a successful day. We encourage creating Group Build Days with businesses, churches and organizations. Build Teams not only get the homes completed sooner, but they also offer an opportunity to support the community and nurture relationships with coworkers.
Our Construction Manager, Donna, (we affectionately call her Big Momma Donna) will ensure you have a fun experience and you’ll learn a lot! Contact the Program Manager to see how we can get you signed up or how we can organize a group build day for you! Learn more about our BUILD
Women BuildThis program promotes the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes. Women-built projects provide opportunities for women to learn construction in a supportive environment. Women Build works with affiliates to nurture, recruit and train women to build and maintain simple, decent, healthy and affordable homes.By planning projects where the majority of volunteers are women, Women Build creates greater involvement in our construction efforts which increases the number of homes Habitat can build! Women needn’t wait for others to address substandard housing issues. They have the capability and determination to be part of the solution-one family at a time. Learn More
Did you know that when you volunteer at the Habitat ReStore you can earn Habitat Bucks good towards your purchases at the ReStore? The more hours your volunteer the more Habitat Bucks you earn – Cool!
With an inventory that includes gently used and new household items and building supplies, the ReStore is a wonderful resource for our community. Open Monday – Saturday we need volunteers each day.

We need people to help with pricing, maintenance of the store, organization of merchandise, inventory, loading and unloading donated materials, truck runs, data entry and promotions. There is always a job to be done!
