Habitat for Humanity Capital Region is a grassroots, community-based organization that relies on local volunteers to build homes, community, and hope in Ingham County. There are many ways to become involved in Habitat's work.

New volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation at our main office, located at 1941 Benjamin Drive in Lansing. Orientations are currently on-hold due to limited availability of volunteer opportunities. Sign up for using the form below to be notified when orientations will be offered again.

We are not able to work with volunteers seeking to complete court-ordered community who are convicted of sexual or violent crimes, theft, or crimes involving firearms; background checks are completed for all volunteers. All other community service volunteers must contact the Habitat Capital Region office at (517) 374-1313 ext. 102 to schedule an appointment. If you have questions about volunteering, please contact Sami Chau.

Corporate and civic groups, please email or call Sami to arrange a crew.
