Volunteer

Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County is a volunteer-driven organization. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with families in need. We invite volunteers to help us build, assist in the office, work in the ReStore, serve on committees, and help with special projects that benefit the organization. As a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County, there is always a place for you to bring your unique talents and skills. Experience is not necessary to volunteer with us. Our staff and volunteer leaders will provide you with all the training needed. Our partner families work alongside many of our volunteers while they are earning sweat equity, so it’s a great way to meet future Habitat homeowners.

Group Opportunities

Volunteering is a great way to bring your corporate, faith, or community group together and improve your teamwork. We offer construction and ReStore opportunities for groups.  If you are interested in volunteering with a group or organization, please register and then contact us by phone or email for more details. One representative from your group must first attend an informal tour, and the volunteer liaison will be happy to schedule a time with you.

Student Opportunities

As a student of Indiana University or Bloomington High School North, you can also get involved with Habitat for Humanity through a school chapter. Chapters have build spots reserved for large groups throughout the year, and always welcome new members. In addition to building, each chapter hosts special events to raise awareness and support for Habitat for Humanity. Habitat chapters are a great way to meet like-minded people, and they’ll keep you engaged in both your school and your community.

Please visit the Indiana University Chapter or Bloomington HS North Chapter websites for more information.
