By continuing to follow our health and safety guidelines, Habitat staff, AmeriCorps, and volunteers are keeping sites open and progress moving! See what is new and what’s to come on the Habitat sites across the Bay Area.

Oakland (Manila Avenue): Habitat is happy to be back in Oakland, taking two properties that sat vacant for over a decade, and revitalizing them into affordable homes for two families! Habitat staff and volunteers are currently working on demolition, some initial plumbing and electrical projects, a smidge of framing, and some roof demolition.

To provide adequate space for social distancing and other health and safety measures, volunteer opportunities are very limited and go fast! Click here to see future availability.

Update on Upcoming Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Volunteer Opportunities in San Jose:
    Construction volunteer opportunities at our new renovation project on Guanacaste Ct. in San Jose will be opening soon! Volunteer space will be very limited at this site to accommodate safe social distancing practices, so this is the ideal individual volunteer opportunity or a great way to get you and members of your household out of the house!

  • Volunteer Opportunities in Walnut Creek:
    Our site staff is still hard at work keeping us on track to get volunteers on site at Esperanza Place, our new 42-home development, this summer! However, there is still a lot of work to be done behind the scenes before we can get shovels in the dirt.

With the wellness of our Habitat staff and volunteers as our top priority, we will continue to enforce our health and safety guidelines and limit the number of volunteer spots available for each site. Click here to see our up-to-date volunteer calendar and to sign up for a time that works for your schedule.
