Volunteer

Every volunteer makes a difference, and we have a wealth of volunteer opportunities available. Volunteers are the heart of Will County Habitat for Humanity. Thousands of volunteers lend a hand to build, renovate, and repair homes with us each year, as well as provide all other types of services. We have a wealth of volunteer opportunities available in the Joliet, Plainfield, Morris, Bolingbrook, Aurora, Naperville, and surrounding areas.

Will County Habitat welcomes individual volunteers to ensure that everyone can live in decent, affordable, and sustainable housing. We invite you to help on our construction sites, in our ReStores, during our special events, or behind the scenes in our offices or committees.

Please browse the different types of volunteer opportunities, and contact Cheryl at ctoohey[at]habitatwill.org if you have any questions.
