We’d love the chance to chat with you, learn more about you, and help you find the right spot for you here at Habitat. Please email or call Sandra Harrison at sandra@habitatcapecod.org or 508-362-3559 x28, so we can welcome you.

Most volunteer opportunities can be found at our online Volunteer Portal, and you can sign up anytime.

ALL volunteers must pass a background check in order to volunteer with Habitat Cape Cod.
Court-ordered community service volunteer opportunities are determined on a case-by-case basis.

On-site opportunities in construction, registration, and snacks

Each Habitat home is built by volunteers and the future home buyer. You must be 16 years of age to participate. We work on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and some Thursdays, from 7:45AM to 3:30PM. No prior experience is necessary. We provide on-site training and all the tools you will need. Construction volunteers must sign up for specific dates, and you can sign up as often as you like. You can also volunteer to help with morning registration or to provide snacks.

Please note that many of our work days fill up quickly. If the schedule is full, we encourage you to place your name on the WAIT LIST. When a slot becomes available again, or if the Site Leader needs additional help, or we see a volunteer who is new to Habitat of Cape Cod, the WAIT LIST is used.

Events and other opportunities

You may want to volunteer at a fundraising event, which you can do on-line within the PROGRAM named ‘Special Events’. Or you may want to join one of our committees, make a quilt for a new homeowner, help out in the office, or work with one of our families. For these opportunities, or if you have questions or need more information, please contact Sandra Harrison, sandra@habitatcapecod.org or at 508-362-3559 x28.


Our Habitat ReStores are looking for volunteers in Yarmouth and Falmouth to help with greeting customers and donors, cashiering, staging furniture, photography, and social media. We also need some “muscle” to help load and unload our trucks. We offer short, flexible shifts Monday through Saturday: 9AM-1PM and 1PM to 5PM.

Schedule a Team Day

Your organization (club, business, church, classmates, friend group) can partner with Habitat to build a home for a local family in need.

At the same time, you’ll build relationships, communication skills, and leadership potential while enhancing your corporate image in the community.

What makes Habitat’s team building program special is that your efforts will extend beyond the needs of your organization and will play a key role in helping a neighbor become the owner of a decent, affordable home.

Teams generally range in size from 5-12 members and there is usually a fee to sponsor a day.

Your financial donation enables Habitat to continue to build homes and serve families right here on Cape Cod. Contact our Volunteer & Community Relations Manager for more information.
