Habitat for Humanity fo Kanawha and Putnam County is committed to eliminating sub-standard housing in Kanawha and Putnam Counties by partnering with others to build hope and housing with God's people in need.
Mission of the ReStore: To raise money for funding of Habitat for Humanity homes, to provide low cost building materials to all homeowners in our community, and to reduce the amount of reusable materials that are disposed of in area landfills.
Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer-driven organization. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with families in need. Volunteers are involved in most phases of construction, even though most have no construction experience or building skills.
Habitat volunteers contribute more than muscle. Creativity, strategy, and technical skills are among the many invaluable gifts volunteers bring to the organization. With a minimal staff, Habitat for Humanity depends upon volunteer committees for support with projects like Family Selection, Site Selection, and Family Services.
We invite volunteers to help us build, work at the ReStore, serve on committees, and help with special projects that benefit the organization. Time commitments vary; some volunteers dedicate every day of the week to Habitat and others spend just a few hours each month to work on projects.
