Ways to Help

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County is an excellent way to meet new people and work toward a single mission- to build strong and stable communities because improved communities benefit all of us.

All volunteers must fill out the Volunteer Information and Waiver form prior to volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County.  Waivers are to be updated and turned in annually.

Administrative

Office volunteers are always needed to help the staff to complete our mission. Volunteers assist us with day to day clerical duties, such as answering phones and making calls, data entry, graphic design, research, specialized projects and much more!

Volunteer opportunities are available at our office; located at 13350 Jones Road Houston, TX 77070 Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm. Volunteer shifts can be flexible to fit your schedule.

Home Repair

We partner with volunteers, donors and homeowners to broaden our impact. Projects include painting, external repair work, building or repairing porches/ramps, landscaping, neighborhood clean-up, beautification, and many more tasks.

Volunteer opportunities are available various locations Wednesday through Saturday. Volunteer shifts can be flexible to fit your schedule.

Lunch Provider

The dedicated volunteers and the families who are working on their homes enjoy a meal together every single Saturday on the Habitat build site. As volunteers and families work together and eat together, community grows, neighbors are engaged in the lives of others, and volunteers are given lunch as meaningful thank you for their work.

These lunches can only be provided through the helpful contributions of churches, community groups and community-minded businesses. Lunch Providers purchase, prepare and serve volunteers. The food must be prepared ahead of time and enough for all volunteers and red hats. (this number will be provided when you sign up and confirmed 2 weeks before the date) Lunch providers must arrive at 11:30 to set up and are welcome to join us for our meal.

New Home Construction

There are opportunities for all skill levels and abilities at our build site, so prior building experience is not required for volunteers.  We encourage both groups and individual volunteers to join us. All contributions are welcome. Every volunteer must be 16 years of age or older; please contact our office for volunteer opportunities for individuals under the age of 16. There is no upper age limit at our organization!

Individual
  • All individual volunteers are required to pre-registrar here.
Groups
  • A group is 5 or more people.
  • All individual volunteers in your group are required to contact our volunteer coordinator to schedule a volunteer day.
  • All groups are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis, with sponsor teams receiving priority scheduling.
  • To provide your group a quality and safe volunteer experience, we limit the number of volunteers to 30 per group.

We have new homes under construction Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  Our work day is 8:00 am- 3:00 pm most of the year and 8:00 am- 12:00 pm for the month of July. We do not work the month of August and most major holidays.  We are currently building at Fairfax Village West in Spring, TX.

We build rain or shine, but just in case of inclement weather check out our Inclement Weather Hotline at 713-968-9766.

Youth

Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County brings together youth from across the Northwest Harris County to learn about affordable homeownership, gain leadership skills, and cultivate a dedication to service.

While youth under 16 aren't allowed to volunteer on active construction sites, there are many creative ways youth volunteer! Whether it's landscaping, planting trees, raising funds, hosting a collection drive or bake sale or providing lunch for volunteers who are building, you won't be disappointed.
