Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are the heart of our organization and support every aspect of our work to help us to carry out our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Whether sorting donations in the ReStore, hammering nails on the construction site, or serving on committee, we hope you’ll find the volunteer opportunity that is right for you! 


Volunteering with Coles County Habitat for Humanity is a fun and rewarding experience. No construction knowledge or skills necessary and we’ll provide all the tools and training you need.  Volunteers must be 16 years or older.  

Team Build

Bring your company, team, organization or school for a day of volunteering and fun. Your group can make an important contribution to Habitat’s mission of building and repairing homes in partnership with families in need.

Make a Lunch for the Builds

Do you like to cook? It’s hard to build on an empty stomach. Our meal donors are a big part of keeping our crew going. If you have a serving heart but low on time, you can always provide a meal from one of our local businesses. 

Become a Family Support Team

Each homeowner family is assigned a volunteer support team that provides individualized support and encouragement as well as serves as a resource, mentor, and mediator throughout the program. 

Serve on a Committee

We are always looking for volunteers to share their expertise, connections, and passion to serve on our committees that plan and maintains Habitat’s programs. From Finance to Construction, Family Selection to Family Support, there is something for everyone.

Help with a Fundraiser

Coles County Habitat holds several fundraising events each year. Join a planning committee or volunteer an event. Don't be shy!

Board Leadership

Directors lead Habitat on strategic planning, grow the organization's network, make policy decisions and make yearly financial contributions. 

Volunteer at our ReStore
