Get involved with Habitat in your community

Volunteers are the life of our organization and without them our work would not be possible. We have many ways for you to volunteer – from building Habitat homes locally, sitting on a board, or helping at a Habitat ReStore.

Volunteer at the ReStore

Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity PEI and the ReStore is a fun and meaningful experience. It is a perfect opportunity to connect with others and give back to the community in a way that directly impacts local families.

Volunteering With Habitat for Humanity

Volunteer on a Build Site

Each Habitat PEI home is built from the ground up by volunteers of all skill levels and backgrounds. Our Habitat homes are truly the homes that love built. It takes many caring hands to build a Habitat home. Constructed almost entirely by caring volunteers and with the support of dedicated, skilled Habitat for Humanity PEI staff.
