Volunteers are the backbone of Habitat for Humanity.

Volunteering with Rockford Area Habitat for Humanity has a direct impact on our local community. If you want to make a difference, you have community service hours to fulfill, or you are a professional that would like to use your skills to support our mission, we would be honored to have you as a volunteer. You will enjoy a rewarding and valuable experience while meeting new people, networking, and learning new skills.
