Become a volunteer

and live the mission.

Building on strength, Housatonic Habitat entered a new chapter in its proud 30-year history.

Since 2013, we’ve put people, processes, and procedures in place that have formed a solid foundation for our work ahead. Our core team enables us to open doors for a bright future.

Today’s Board of Directors, our Advisory Leadership Council of community experts, and our grass-roots committee structure which is composed of dedicated volunteers, allow us to move ahead … to grow and prosper. Above all, we are grateful for our committed volunteers who are our mainstay. They live the mission.

They hang drywall.
They drive trucks.
They move tables and chairs.
They bake.
They do crafts.
They give resources, time, and talents that are our life blood.

Each gift of time, talent, and treasures is unique and creates sustainable change when combined with our vision of safe and affordable housing.

Here’s how you can make a difference:
