Non-Construction

If you’ve ever wanted to help Habitat, but don’t feel like construction is the right fit, there are several opportunities to get involved: 

Office Support

Durham Habitat occasionally seeks long-term office volunteers, with great interpersonal and computer skills, who can make a regular weekday commitment.

Email the Volunteer Manager for more information.

The Habitat ReStore

Volunteer opportunities at the ReStore include:

  • Donation processing (accepting, sorting, cleaning, testing, and pricing donations)
  • Customer service (greeting customers and managing the register)
  • Office administration (answering phones, entering data, and clerical tasks)
  • General maintenance

To volunteer at the Restore, please sign up for an upcoming orientation on their website. Questions? Contact volunteer@restoredurhamorange.org or call (919)403-8668.

Site Hospitality

Help construction volunteers feel like a valuable part of the Habitat team by welcoming them on the work site with purchased or handmade treats or meals. Email the Volunteer Manager for more information.

Habitat Success Stories

Anita and her sister thought they were experiencing night sweats but realized that it was raining inside their home. Habitat partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield to replace their roof. “I used to go to bed every night and the rain would be all over my face but not anymore. Thank you.”
