The Role of Volunteers

At Habitat, volunteers are the heart of our organization! More than 15,500+ volunteers assist in our home-building program every year. They build homes, raise funds, work in the offices, feed hungry volunteers, work at our Home Centers, and more. Our volunteers work alongside our homeowners and help them on their journey toward homeownership. Volunteer opportunities at Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio include:

Habitat For Humanity

Build Homes

Home construction is the heart of Habitat. No previous experience is necessary to volunteer. Each home will have an experienced leader to instruct volunteers and all the tools and safety equipment necessary. We have opportunities on the work site most Tuesdays – Saturdays. We provide lunch for our volunteers on Fridays and Saturdays only.

Habitat For Humanity

Lunch Crews

Help feed hungry volunteers. If you want to provide lunch to our volunteers you will provide the (commercially purchased) food, beverages, and paper products for approximately 30 volunteers on any scheduled build day. Providing lunch for one house (30 volunteers) is worth 24 hours of community service (provided that is accepted by your organization or school).

Habitat For Humanity

Volunteer Services Assistant

This is an ideal position for volunteers who want to be on the worksite but for some reason choose not to participate in construction. This volunteer will help Volunteer Services staff host all the volunteers on-site (ex: sign in, help with lunch, etc.).

Habitat For Humanity

Home Centers

Volunteers can assist in our Home Centers with pricing, stocking, loading/unloading trailers, assembling cabinets, and more. Opportunities are available Monday-Friday (8 am – 6 pm) and Saturday (9 am – 5 pm). Must be 18 years or older.

Deconstruction Crew

The Wrecking Crew tears out usable building supplies from local remodeling projects. Salvaged materials are sold in our Home Centers. Volunteer days and times will vary depending on the need.
