join team habitat for humanity

We're hiring!  If you've always wanted to be a part of a dynamic team working together to make our community a better place, then Habitat for Humanity is the place for you!  We are currently hiring AmeriCorps positions, ReStore positions, and construction positions.

Habitat provides opportunities for low-income families in San Diego County to build and buy their own homes.  We also repair existing homes and revitalize entire neighborhoods.  We need experienced construction superintendents to lead volunteers and manage construction sites. 
AmeriCorps is the national service initiative that provides 10-12 month long community service opportunities to people of all ages and backgrounds. Through their service, AmeriCorps members address critical needs in local communities. AmeriCorps positions are currently available in ReStore development, resource development, neighborhood revitalization project development, construction crew leadership, and community outreach coordination.

The ReStore is Habitat's home improvement warehouse, open to the public, that supports Habitat's mission of building homes, communities, and hope.   We are hiring part time warehouse associates for each of our locations in central San Diego (Kearny Mesa), Escondido, and National City.

Women Build 2017 was a huge success, raising over $152,000!  Thank you to each and every participant for your hard work on the job site, and for your awesome fundraising efforts.  Our top fundraiser, Kay Grimes, raised over $7,500 alone!  And our top fundraising teams, Balfour Beatty Connecting Women, top corporate team, raised a record breaking $19,636!  The Riveters, top friends and family team, raised over $17,000!  Amazing job, ladies!

We framed homes in our new Habitat for Humanity community in Logan Heights, where four families will have the opportunity to buy a home and change their lives forever.
