Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County is a volunteer-powered organization. Our volunteers make it possible for the mission of building decent, affordable homes for hardworking Bergen County families to become a reality.

You must be 16 years of age or older to volunteer on our Construction Site. Construction skills are not required. Our construction begins each day on the job with instruction in the safe operation of tools and use of materials. In addition, our website contains an orientation section which covers key safety practices.
