The Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity volunteer experience is like no other. It is a tangible result with immediate impact. Our volunteer program is vast, offering many opportunities for both individuals and small groups in construction, ReStore and more.
We are a group of young professionals that work to support the mission of Habitat for Humanity with a fresh approach to developing strong social networks. Coming from a variety of professions, backgrounds and interests, HYP Dallas members are the next generation of leaders who work to advocate for affordable housing, volunteer to build homes, and raise funds to support Habitat for Humanity International.

The Habitat Apprentice Training program (H.A.T.) provides an opportunity for local, underserved men, women, veterans, single parents, and young adults to learn a set of marketable skills in the residential construction industry.
Our Neighborhood Empowerment team was formed to advance Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity’s mission and commitment to not just build houses, but to also revitalize and transform entire neighborhoods. Our mission is to serve more families by responding to community aspirations with an expanded array of products, services and partnerships, empowering residents to revive their neighborhoods and enhance their quality of life.
A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity’s exterior home repair program available to homeowners who would otherwise be unable to improve and maintain their homes. ABWK empowers residents to participate in the transformation of the neighborhood and encourage a strengthened pride in their community.
The first priority of the ABWK program is to provide exterior repairs that help maintain the integrity and safety of the home.
What exactly does “Deconstruction mean?” When homes and apartments are scheduled for demolition or remodeling, not all the valuable materials are removed. When Habitat for Humanity gets involved, we deconstruct those units.
This means that we send a team of volunteers and project managers into those units with specific instructions on what and how to remove the items we want (and have permission to take).
Volunteer at one of our ReStores!
The ReStore is a retail store that stocks new and gently used home decorating and home improvement products at a deep discount. ReStore volunteers work alongside staff to create a friendly environment for our customers. We have four ReStores that are open seven days a week, giving the most flexible options for volunteers to donate their time.
