Help Coastal Habitat for Humanity continue to repair and rebuild Southern Monmouth County!

Home Preservation Projects

Join our team leaders on Wednesdays and Saturdays to assist homeowners with minor repairs to their homes. Many of our neighbors are elderly or handicapped and in need of some extra hands to make their home safe and livable. These projects are great for volunteers that may not be comfortable working on an active construction site. Some tasks may include landscaping, painting, or installing rails and grab bars.

Projects will take place Wednesday and Saturday each week through October. To volunteer, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator one week prior for project information.

This schedule will begin Saturday September 13th with work being done on a Neptune home. Approximately 15-20 volunteers are needed to paint the outside of the home, clean up the yard, and clean and repair gutters. Please contact us ASAP to sign up.

Home Construction

Coastal Habitat for Humanity continues to repair and rebuild homes in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. With multiple sites active each week, we are always in need of a few extra hands. Although it has been almost 2 years since the storm, there is still quite a bit of work to be done.

Volunteer days are Tuesday - Saturday, 8:30am - 3:30pm. Volunteers meet at our warehouse located at 910 Fourth Avenue in Asbury Park at 8:30. To schedule a time to volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (732) 974-2422 x3 or
