Every year, Habitat for Humanity Sarasota relies on more than 800 volunteers to support our mission. Beyond home construction, generous volunteers assist in our administrative office and lend their unique passion and skills to our board and committees. Volunteers help keep the homes affordable for qualified homebuyers. It is our goal to help you find the volunteer assignment that best suits your skills, interests, and schedule.
