Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity

Do you enjoy appreciating others? Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity seeks a detail-oriented and tech-savvy volunteer to help spread messages of hope in honor of Mother's Day. Each GDM Habitat donor will be invited to write a special message for a mother or woman figure in their life. The Appreciation Volunteer will email each honoree a photo of the special message using an email template and a GDM Habitat email address (Gmail). This is an ongoing, virtual opportunity from mid-April through mid-May, with an anticipated time commitment of ~2 hours/week. Scheduling is flexible, but preference would be for work to be completed between 8am - 5pm so a staff member can assist as needed. GDM Habitat staff will provide a virtual orientation. Expectations: sign a confidentiality agreement and agree to GDM Habitat's volunteer waiver. Please contact Elaine Collet with any further questions.

Mission Statement

Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity partners with God and all members of our community to build simple, decent housing which strengthens families and transforms neighborhoods through homeownership.


Greater Des Moines Habitat For Humanity is a locally operated affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical, Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold with no interest to those in need for the cost of the land and non donated materials at no profit.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat for Humanity. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we work to build affordable homes and hope in partnership with God and families in need.

There are many ways to become involved in Habitat's work. Volunteers can help in one or more of the following areas:

Construction & Rock the Block
Office and Administrative
Facility Maintenance
Family Services

History: Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity has been serving the Greater Des Moines community since 1986. To date, the organization has helped move more than 150 adults and 350 children into the safety and stability of homeownership.
