BenefitsHabitat for Humanity builds safe, decent, affordable homes to provide families a hand up to break the cycle of poverty. They do this with the support and assistance of volunteers, donors of goods to the ReStores, individual donors, corporate partners, and the community. They respect the diversity in generations, genders, ethnicities, races, languages, abilities, orientations and skills that their employees and volunteers reflect. They embrace a culture of inclusion, partnership, and engagement establishing meaningful connections with employees and the volunteers they rely on in a way that adds value to their lives.  
 
Many other benefits come from volunteering with the Home Services crew, including: relationship-building, making a positive environmental impact, developing/improving your own skills, gaining experience, earning volunteer hours for various community service requirements, the opportunity to receive letters of recommendation, and more!
