Each and every volunteer that gives their time to Habitat for Humanity PEI helps us achieve our vision of an Island where everyone has a safe, decent and affordable home to live in. Whether you are an individual, a corporate team, a family, a group of friends, or a community organization, Habitat for Humanity PEI has the perfect volunteer opportunity for you!

Habitat for Humanity PEI is currently in the process of relocating our Restore and have put a pause on our volunteer program due to COVID-19 and our move. We are expecting to resume the volunteer program in February 2021.

Most people think of construction work or the ReStore when they think about volunteering for Habitat, but our need for volunteers goes well beyond that.  Habitat PEI has a number of volunteer committees and each on performs an essential function for the organization.

Team High Five

Volunteer at the ReStore

Our ReStore funds the overhead operations of Habitat PEI and is our single largest revenue generator. We could not serve families in PEI without the ReStore and the work of its volunteers. We always have a need for volunteers in the areas of front cash, receiving, sales floor and the electrical room. The coffee is always on and volunteers are eligible for a 40% discount.

Board of Directors

Habitat PEI is always looking for board members to lend their voice to the governance of the organization. Meetings are held monthly. Expertise in real estate development, mortgages, law, accounting, HR, governance, or any related field is always welcome. Diversity in membership and geographic representation is also taken into account. For more information, please contact Jamie Mackay, Interm CEO Habitat PEI, at executivedirector@habitatpei.ca
