Become a Volunteer

Every volunteer contributes towards building a world where everyone has a safe, healthy place to live.

At Habitat, our goal is to give more hard working families a "hand up" - the opportunity to create new memories in a place that they can finally call "home". A place that's warm, a place that's safe, a place where they don't have to make the choice between money for rent or money for groceries.

Our volunteers help make this dream a reality for so many families and individuals in our community. Whether it be in our offices, our ReStores or on our construction sites, volunteers use their gifts and talents to create a better world for those who simply need a helping hand to get them to a better place. Our organization is thriving and growing thanks to our volunteers and thanks to their hard work, we're going to be able to help more families this year than ever before. We're going to give more children and parents happy memories. We're going to eliminate stress and worry. We're going to help hard working individuals to come home every night to a safe and affordable place to call home. But most importantly, we're going to change the lives of our partner families for years and generations to come.


“Affordable housing gives residents the respect, dignity, pride and safety that come with having a place to call home. We want more of this for Mississauga.”
