COME BUILD WITH US!
With minimum staff, Comal County Habitat for Humanity depends on volunteers for support with projects like home builds and repairs, but that’s not all! If you’re looking for something less strenuous, our Habitat ReStore is a volunteer-supported appliance, furniture, and building material resale center.
We want “YOU” “YOUR COMPANY” or “COMMUNITY GROUP” to join us on the Construction Site or at our ReStore where we work to build decent affordable homes.
If you have a group of 5 or more that is interested in Group Volunteer Opportunity, please fill out the Interest Form below.
