Washington County Habitat for Humanity is NOW HIRING!
Since 1989 Washington County Habitat for Humanity has been building homes for qualified, deserving, low-income families in Washington County. With more than 45 homes completed and an additional 3-4 under construction each year we are working steadily towards our goal of ensuring that everyone has a safe, decent place to live. But there is much more work to be done.
Volunteers allow us to build affordable homes by donating their time and skills to constructing new houses and staffing our ReStore. We welcome you to join our volunteer base. We are also continually seeking to identify qualified families interested in participating in our home ownership program and receiving one of our quality houses. If you are interested in becoming a homeowner, volunteering, or donating to help make someone's dream of home ownership a reality; all the information necessary to get started is available on this website! Feel free to explore!
Also, take a moment to check out the ReStore section of the site. The ReStore offers new and used construction and home goods for sale to the general public at unbeatable prices. Everything we sell is donated, and the proceeds from the sale are used to fund our home construction efforts.
Involvement with Habitat for Humanity at any level is more than a day volunteering, a donation made, or a shopping trip downtown - it is an investment in a family, in your community. So join with us, as we work together to ensure a future where all of God's children have a safe home and a hope for the future.
We encourage you to take a moment and view our informational video.
