- What We Build
Come join Habitat East Bay/Silicon Valley for a day of building on our construction sites! We are a volunteer driven organization serving families and communities in the East and South Bay Area. We look forward to building with you!
Habitat EBSV homes are built with 80% volunteer labor. We depend on individuals like you who are willing to come out and swing a hammer on the construction site to build homes and a lasting future for families in need. By working alongside our dedicated construction team, regular volunteers, and partner families you will help us build Habitat houses while having a great time learning construction skills. No construction experience is necessary. We provide you with all of the tools and training necessary on site. The best way to sign up is online on our volunteer schedule. Sign up today!
The ReStore sells building materials at a fraction of retail prices, making home improvements, renovations, or building upkeep more affordable. Proceeds from the store help fund the construction of Habitat EBSV homes. Habitat EBSV ReStores needs volunteers to help manage the store, assist customers and keep merchandise in order and stocked. If you like working with people and in fun environments, this will be a great experience for you. Sign-up to volunteer today!
Building dreams takes lots of behind-the-scenes work from dedicated volunteers, and there are a variety of ways to do this beyond the construction site. There are many opportunities for you to support our work!
Translation Services: On-call volunteers who are fluent in Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese or Vietnamese are needed to translate documents and to translate during meetings and events.
Data Entry Specialists: Help in our Downtown Oakland or Milpitas office with data entry, filing, mailings, and other general office duties. Hours are flexible, but a weekly commitment is requested.
Speaker's Bureau: Help us spread the word! Use your voice to inspire our community to work together to revitalize neighborhoods. Volunteers are needed to conduct outreach through tabling events, speaking at schools, and representing Habitat at community events.
Event Support: We host various outreach and support programs throughout the year: Build-A-Thon, Home Dedications, and Groundbreakings. We always appreciate an extra hand with set-up, registration, and event wrap-up!
"The concept of community care and strengthening communities is what will make things happen in a positive way” - Kathleen Kwan, Family Selection Committee Member
Family Selection Committee
Come and learn how we select our newest partner families by identifying applicants that meet our selection criteria. Volunteers help us conduct interviews, attend home visits, and review applications. We are especially seeking bi-lingual volunteers or volunteers with backgrounds in financial analysis.
Family Resource Committee
The Family Resource Committee assists partner families as partner families become homeowners and keeps our community of families connected. The committee volunteers host annual events, such as field trips to museums, youth carnivals hosted by the Cal Habitat Chapter, and our annual Family Fun Day summer picnic.
Faith Partners Committee
Help build and strengthen partnerships with the faith community by providing meaningful opportunities for faith groups to engage with and support us. Committee members make presentations at church services, promote volunteerism, fundraise, and provide prayer support.
Join the dedicated women who come together to volunteer, raise funds, provide support, training, and build friendships. As they assist partner families building their homes, Women's Crew members acquire skills they can use to repair and maintain their own homes. Learn more..
