About Us

As a non-profit organization, Housing Works depends on the generosity of volunteers. 5,000 New Yorkers volunteer with us annually for a combined total of 300,000 hours each year. These service hours are crucial to every part of our organization and we wouldn’t be able to provide essential services to our clients without the help of volunteers.

Retail Activists & Sales Associates:

We are looking for dynamic and friendly people to run the register and back counter, assist at our fitting rooms, refill and straighten up our clothing racks, merchandising the store, and help the staff with a wide variety of projects. Each volunteer will be trained to have knowledge of each area of the shop, and each person’s volunteer experience is tailored to their personal skills and interests. As a Sales Associate, volunteers share the same responsibilities and roles as our full-time staff, and we welcome you to become part of our thrift shop family. By assisting at our thrift shops, volunteers directly assist in the generation of Thrift Shop Revenue, 100% of which contributes to the maintence of Housing Works, Inc. and our clients. Our volunteers are not simply “Sales Associates”, they are Retail Activists.
