We recognise that not everyone can make a financial contribution to our cause, but you can make a difference by giving us your time.

A large part of our funding comes from the income we make from our ReStore charity shops. Our 7 ReStores accept and resell quality new and gently pre-loved goods ranging from furniture, appliances, clothing, books, building materials and more.

If you can spare a few hours each week on a regular basis, we have a variety of tasks that you can assist with – customer service, operating the till, sorting donated goods, displaying merchandise for sale, help our driver with pick-ups and a lot more.

There are also opportunities to learn and eventually attend a course to be certified to test and tag electrical equipment. We aim to give you tasks that you are comfortable with and where you can add value.

Our volunteers gain valuable retail experience, a sense of companionship with all the other volunteers – our regulars find a family away from home and the satisfaction from knowing that you make a difference.

At Habitat for Humanity we aim to make a difference by addressing inadequate and unaffordable housing, partnering with communities to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. 

Too many Kiwi families live in substandard conditions, where overcrowding, dampness and lack of insulation affect all aspects of health and wellbeing. We offer a range of programmes ensuring families can access the safety and security of a decent home, ranging from The Healthy Homes Programme, Progressive Home Ownership, Home Repairs, Social Rental and more.

Come, join us in our mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. 😊
