Community Invited for Sneak Peek of New Green Bay Habitat ReStore Building

Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity is doubling the size of their ReStore with the relocation of the business. A bigger store requires more volunteers, and the process will officially kick off with a series of volunteer information sessions. All sessions will take place at the new ReStore location, 1967 Allouez Avenue, and will offer guests a sneak peek at the new space.

By attending a volunteer information session, potential volunteers will learn about opportunities available at the new space, such as merchandise prep associates, cashiers, metal recycling assistants, and donation pick up assistants.

All volunteer information sessions will be at the new ReStore location, 1967 Allouez Avenue.

The scheduled dates and times for the sessions are:

Tuesday, October 8th at 4:30 p.m.
Thursday, October 10th at 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday, October 15th at 10:30 a.m.

Email or call Julia at [email protected] or 920-338-1650 to let them know if you’re coming. For more information about the ReStore, please visit their website at

Habitat for Humanity

Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity builds new construction homes in the Green Bay area and sells them to qualified families at no profit. The Habitat program provides benefits to our partner families and the Green Bay community. Families benefit from decent, affordable housing while the community benefits from the redevelopment of neighborhoods and an increase in tax revenue. The Habitat program does not give houses away. Families must spend “sweat equity” hours helping to build their home, pay a $900 down payment and make monthly mortgage payments. Homes are made affordable due to the volunteer labor used to build the home and the 0% interest mortgage provided by Habitat. To see what we’re working on now, check out our Current Builds page!

Habitat homes are build according to these three standard principles:

  1. Simple:
    Habitat houses are modestly-sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family’s needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum.
  2. Decent:
    Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally-available building materials. Habitat house designs reflect the local climate and culture.
  3. Affordable:
    The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.

The first step in becoming a Habitat homeowner is to attend an informational Application Meeting. At the informational session, you will find out about our program, see what a typical Habitat home looks like, and learn how to accurately complete your application. Applicants and co-applicants must attend a meeting to receive an application; you will have 30 days from that date to turn in your completed application and required documents.  This meeting will take approximately 1 hour.  The application process takes approximately 60-90 days from the date Habitat receives your completed application. If you have additional questions or would like more information, please contact [email protected]
