Get Involved

Volunteers are the backbone of Habitat.

Time and time again, our community has demonstrated its generosity through countless hours of volunteering. Through this collective effort families have been able to move into their very own homes – Thank You Volunteers!

Rockford Area Habitat for Humanity still aims to seek passionate individuals and organizations to join us in our fight against substandard housing in the Rockford community. Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome!

We have the greatest need for volunteers at our ReStore.


Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity has a direct impact on supporting our mission. If you have community service hours to fulfill or you want to make a difference, we’d love to have you! You’ll enjoy a rewarding experience while meeting new people, networking, and learning new skills. Also, your volunteer experience looks great on a resume.

We currently have the following opportunities available:

In Store: Volunteers assist at the ReStore (a building supply reuse and surplus center) by greeting and assisting customers, or stocking shelves and setting up displays.

As a Truck Driver: Volunteers drive the truck to locations for donation pick-ups. The driver would need to be able to help with loading the truck and filling out donation receipt forms.

As a Cashier: Volunteers greet customers, answer phones, and run the cash register.
