Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: San Diego Habitat for Humanity

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a discount home improvement center with a simple premise: by selling donated building materials, they can fund the construction of more Habitat homes in San Diego County. Sales of donated goods fund our mission of creating affordable homeownership opportunities. Thousands of pounds of materials are kept out of landfills and reused each year. With locations in National City, Kearny Mesa and Escondido, the ReStore is their biggest fundraiser and they need your help!

The ReStore offers many volunteer opportunities for individuals or small groups who are able to help in a variety of roles and for any length of time. Duties include sorting donations, organizing inventory, stocking shelves, helping customers, light construction, or finding creative ways to use donated products. They'll find the task that is perfect for you!

About San Diego Habitat for Humanity

Mission Statement

The mission of San Diego Habitat for Humanity is to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope. This is achieved by creating affordable homeownership opportunities in partnership with families and individuals throughout San Diego County.


We partner with families to help build or improve a place they can call home and to find the stability and security they need for a better future. Homeownership can seem like an unattainable dream here in San Diego, but we work alongside future homebuyers to make those dreams become reality. Our programs include:

New Construction - Money fundraised and mortgage payments from previous homes are used to purchase land, and we utilize thousands of volunteer hours to build homes. Homeowners go through a lengthy selection process and join volunteers onsite, contributing 250 hours of sweat equity per adult applicant as their down payment on their home.

Home Repair - We have 2 distinct home repair programs - Neighborhood Revitalization and VetRepair. Neighborhood Revitalization focuses on repairs for homeowners in the neighborhoods where we build new construction. Through VetRepair, we provide repairs for Veteran homeowners throughout San Diego County. Both programs include critical home repair projects (which may include major utility or roof repairs, which need to be subcontracted) or exterior home repair, which is much more volunteer friendly.

ReStore - The ReStore is our discount home improvement center where we accept donations of building materials and home goods. The sale of those items help to fund our mission. We have 3 locations throughout the county - National City, Kearny Mesa, and Escondido - in addition to an online store.
