Volunteers lifting a wall together

Every person can make a difference in their community

Habitat DC-NOVA brings people with all different backgrounds together to eliminate poverty housing and build community alongside our neighbors in need of a decent place to live. We believe everyone can make a difference with their unique skills and talents, and we offer a variety of opportunities to support our mission of affordable housing. Whether you want to swing a hammer, help bring in donations at the ReStore, hold a fundraiser to support our builds, plan an event to raise awareness of housing needs, or advocate for housing policies,  we have an opportunity that will fit your needs. Together, we can support families in our community in building strength, stability and shelter through affordable homeownership opportunities.

Have questions? Connect with a member of our volunteer team by emailing volunteer@habitatdcnova.org.


Habitat DC-NOVA works with thousands of volunteers each year to carry out our mission. We welcome volunteers of all backgrounds and skill levels. Find the project that’s right for you–whether you want to build with us, help at our ReStore, or plan a fundraiser–and get started today!

Team Build Days

With Habitat DC-NOVA, you can bring your members or employees to site to promote team building while making a difference in our community. We offer opportunities on our construction sites, in our ReStores, and more.


Here in the national capital region, you have a unique opportunity to advocate for affordable housing in the seat of government. Habitat engages advocates to help promote housing priorities at both the local AND national levels and urge elected representatives to support housing solutions. Join us today to express your support to help create homeownership opportunities for lower-income working families.


Throughout the year Habitat DC-NOVA holds a wide variety of events such as home dedication ceremonies where we welcome families into their new homes, groundbreakings for new projects, fundraisers like happy hours or galas, volunteer appreciation parties, and other special gatherings. You can support our work and meet our network of partners, volunteers, and stakeholders by joining us.
