The Geezer (self-titled) volunteer group is a collection of regular volunteers (despite the name, there is no age requirement) who come out every week to volunteer in groups. The group is broken up into subgroups based on what type of work you are interested in. They typically come out every Thursday morning to help on site. They also all meet for lunch after the morning shift!

History: The Geezers were initially founded by a group of volunteers in 1985. These volunteers were instrumental in creating the Durham Habitat chapter. Their vision helped grow our organization into what it is today! After creation they created to Geezers groups so they could come out weekly and keep helping to create affordable housing for all in Durham. Since then, the group had expanded into multiple sub-groups! We are very excited to have you join this essential volunteer community and help Habitat for Humanity!

If you would like to join, please email Laine at with your interest and which team you would like to be one. She will add you to the Geezer email list and connect you with the team leader.
