Greater Newark Habitat for Humanity


Volunteers are an essential piece of the Habitat mission, and it is only with the support of our many volunteers and sponsors that we are able to build communities across Newark and Essex, Hudson and Union Counties.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newark works with approximately 1,500 volunteers annually.

Habitat of Greater Newark is proud to partner with:

  • Individuals
  • Families
  • High School and University student groups
  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Faith-based and civic groups

Most of our volunteers spend time on-site with us for a day at a time. Although there is no commitment to work for longer than a day, we love having return volunteers on-site. When volunteers return to work with us, we can teach them new skills, expand on old ones, and begin to give them more responsibility.


Habitat of Greater Newark’s professional staff will teach you the skills needed for the work you will be doing and with the tools you will be handling.

The work on any given day depends solely on what the project calls for on that day and can vary: framing, insulation, sheet rocking, siding, painting, installation of flooring, landscaping, and more.

All tools and materials will be supplied by Habitat of Greater Newark. However, you may bring personal tools if you wish. If you choose to do so, please make sure they are well marked.

You will be shown the proper way to do the job and the correct handling of the required tools for the job. You will never be made to do something that makes you uncomfortable.
