Ulster Habitat volunteers create change in our community. We offer opportunities to build or repair homes with families, to help in our ReStore, or to work on committees or in our offices.


With Ulster Habitat, there are many ways to create change and strengthen our community. We have an open-door policy: If you believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live, you are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, we welcome individual volunteers, groups and supporters from all backgrounds.

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.
