Volunteer

Our volunteers provide expertise, leadership, labor, and support at our construction sites, office, and events. When you volunteer with Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity (GSHFH), you support a critical mission while building skills, relationships, and communities. GSHFH can't do it without YOU!
