As we kickoff a new fiscal year, we are reminded of the huge role our volunteers play in making home ownership a reality for our families in Central Phoenix and across Arizona.

Every Habitat home is a miracle. No matter who you are or where you come from, we believe everyone deserves to feel strength and stability. We are united in our mission to build shelters, empower families and change communities – we couldn’t do that without you!

the recipe for this miracle is simple.

 We work with Arizona families in need of affordable housing, sponsors who are willing to partner with us, and volunteers who are ready to serve.

Each day we meet families near downtown Phoenix and throughout the Valley who find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads. Veterans who have served our nation. Older couples on fixed incomes. Families with children. They are just like me and you.

 why volunteer with habitat central arizona?

Our volunteers make an impact in the community and are part of the solution to finding affordable housing for Arizonans.

  • Work side-by-side with families. Habitat families are required to complete up to 400 hours of required sweat equity, along with other requirements, to qualify for a home.
  • Use skills you already have and learn new ones. Volunteer Mario says that he uses skills he learned from his father when he works on Habitat homes.
  • Experience the feels. A young woman struggling with depression finds new meaning and empowerment as she builds and lends her voice in support of Habitat’s mission.
  • Be part of a larger community.  Today, more than 2 million Habitat volunteers a year build, advocate and raise awareness about the global need for shelter, including almost 13,000 last year in Central Arizona.

Arizona families like the Perez de Albornoz family are finding hope and greater opportunity through our home ownership program. Every Habitat home is a fresh start for parents and children alike.

Affordable homeownership and home repairs empowers families to invest in themselves and their communities. The outcomes are long-lasting and life-changing.
