Habitat for Humanity Restores play an integral part in Habitat’s mission, bringing financial support to our work and offering an opportunity for community members to learn more about our impact. Every task a volunteer does replaces the time of a paid staff member. This means that by volunteering with us, you are keeping our overhead cost down and allowing us to direct even more of our proceeds to Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City.

Contact our ReStore Volunteer Manager at (816) 231-6889, to find out where you can help. We benefit from all types of skills, from plumbing, drywall installation and finishing, flooring installation and electrical to artistic, and everything in between.
