Join the ReStore Team
The ReStore is a building supply and home renovation store that accepts and resells new and gently-used building materials and home décor items. Proceeds from the ReStore fund Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia, which constructs Habitat homes for hard-working low income families in the Province. Supporting the ReStore supports deserving families to achieve the dream of affordable housing.
We have two ReStore locations:
- ReStore Dartmouth is located at 81 Wright Avenue in Dartmouth and is open 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday to Saturday.
Available positions include: driver, cashier and customer service assistant.
- ReStore Halifax (Now Open!) is located at 127 Chain Lake Drive in Halifax and is open 10:00am – 6:00pm, Monday to Friday and 9:00am – 5:00pm on Saturday. Closed Sunday.
Available positions include: cashier and customer service assistant.

Habitat Build Day
Spending a day on a Habitat for Humanity NS build site is a great way for your corporate group, sports team, faith community, school or organization to help improve access to affordable housing for those in our community. It is also a chance for your group to work together in a new environment – an excellent opportunity to build team and leadership skills. By participating in a team build, you can make a difference in the lives of families in need of a “Hand Up”, not a “Hand Out”. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
The second Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia Women Build in 2016 was another huge success! If you are interested in signing up a team, joining a team or simply donating to the Women Build in 2017 please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
In October of 2016, we successfully launched our inaugural ManUp program that brought a group of men together from around the community to focus on helping families achieve homeownership. If you are interested in signing up or supporting the program, feel free to message email@example.com
