Core Volunteers

Core volunteers are a group of people who are committed to NOAHH and its mission. Our core volunteers are those who volunteer with NOAHH (construction or ReStore) at least twice a month. No experience is necessary! These dedicated members of our volunteer teams create deep bonds with our partner families, field staff, and local communities in the New Orleans area. Our core volunteer team also gathers for social events before and after volunteer days, as well as being included on special NOAHH sponsored events. It’s a wonderful way to meet other people and be a part of a special community.

“Of all the things I’ve done of a volunteer nature, Habitat is the most satisfying. The reason is you can see changes taking place. First, in the neighborhood, in actual houses built. Second, in the homeowners, if you’re lucky enough to meet the homeowners, it’s a huge change in their lives.”

–Wally Hymel, Core Volunteer
