Advocate & Volunteer
Family Advocates work directly with partner families through their journey to homeownership. Some key responsibilities are building relationships with families, helping educate the families on responsible home ownership, mortgages and social services and supporting the family emotionally and spiritually.
The commitment lasts from 18 to 24 months with about one hour a month of contact. Meeting times and locations are agreed upon by the Family Advocate and their partner family. As a Family Advocate, we match you with a family that is compatible with your location, time, schedule, and interests.
Advocates are actively recruited year-round but may not be assigned a partner family immediately.
ReStore volunteers assist with sales, inventory, cleaning and stocking the sales floor and warehouse, loading and unloading donated items, and customer service. The revenue generated at the ReStore allows Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton to build additional Habitat Homes every year!
