Faith-based groups and congregations are some of our most frequent and committed volunteers. Groups like RHINO coordinate faith-based volunteers from around the country, and local churches are often found on site or in the ReStore giving back to their communities. Volunteering with NOAHH is a great opportunity for congregations to express their faith through good works and to build fellowship among members.

Youth Groups

Youth groups (with members aged 16+) can find many opportunities for community service projects and learning opportunities by volunteering with NOAHH on the build site, in the ReStore, or with our garden partners. The build site is a great place to teach life skills and to engage in team-building activities.


College, university, and high school students from around the country join NOAHH for Alternative Spring Break and Alternative Winter Break every year. These service opportunities allow students to give back to the communities they visit over break while also giving them time to explore the city.

Local colleges, universities, and high schools regularly volunteer with NOAHH, including through service learning programs. NOAHH’s program shows students the value of community service and social justice, and it allows students to connect with and give back to the city of New Orleans.

All volunteers must be 16 years or older.

Community Service

NOAHH welcomes volunteers who are required by a court to do community service for offenses other than theft or violent crimes. All Community Service volunteers will complete their hours at our ReStore. If you have court appointed community service hours, please contact Volunteer Services to set up an intake meeting to complete paperwork necessary before starting any community service hours. NOAHH will not confirm any community service hours logged without having the required paperwork on file. For more information, please see our Community Service Volunteer Policy or contact us.

Corporate Groups

Custom build days and half-days are possible for corporate and
convention groups. Corporate and convention groups interested
in a custom build day or other volunteer experience should
contact Jay Huffstatler.

Volunteer and help make a difference!
