Volunteer with Habitat Northern


Become a local volunteer

Volunteers are the heart of Habitat for Humanity. We always have projects on the go, and with six ReStores, a Curtain Bank and build team days in our region there are always volunteer opportunities available.

Volunteering offers a great way to meet new people, develop new skills and give back to your community. Every volunteer plays an integral role in helping to provide homes and hope for kiwis in housing need.
