Ulster Habitat volunteers are the driving force behind transforming lives and strengthening our community. By dedicating their time and skills, they help create positive change in the lives of families in need of safe and affordable housing.

Volunteer Opportunities

At Ulster Habitat, we have a wide range of volunteer opportunities available, both in our ReStore and on our construction sites. Whether you are interested in volunteering as an individual or as part of a group, we welcome all individuals who are passionate about making a difference.

Volunteer opportunities on the construction sites are available Wednesday through Saturday. No construction experience necessary. You must be eighteen years of age or older to help on our construction sites.

Volunteer opportunities in the ReStore are available Tuesday through Saturday. 

Creating change in our community is not limited to one particular demographic. We encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views, or any other distinction, to join us in our mission. We believe that everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to live, and together, we can make that dream a reality.

I’m Ready!

If you are ready to join our team of volunteers, please visit our registration page. We are excited to have you on board and be part of the change-making process. For additional information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 845-340-0907 x 105.


The ReStore is a discount furniture and home improvement center that sells donated materials at reduced prices to the general public in support of Ulster Habitat’s mission. 

Flexible volunteer positions are available in a variety of roles to help keep the ReStore running smoothly. We will find the perfect position that matches your interests and skills.

Volunteers clean, display and arrange merchandise, assist customers and staff members, help with loading, unloading and warehouse upkeep, repair gently used furniture, test & repair electronics/appliances, and prepare donated items for resale.


Our construction volunteers work alongside our Build Manager and partner families. We can teach you what you need to know. Prior experience is not necessary. We also welcome the help of experienced and/or retired plumbers, electricians, hvac installers, roofers, painters, gardeners, and more. Depending on the day and season, tasks can include framing, siding, drywall, painting, trim, tilework, punchlist, clean-up or landscaping.

If interested in volunteering individually, or with a group, please continue to our registration page. For additional information, please call 845-340-0907 x 105.
