Most people think of swinging a hammer when they think about volunteering for Habitat. Due to the tremendous amount of planning and management required to build just one home, we have a constant need for committee members and volunteers to help with various other tasks. Many of our younger volunteers (under the age of 16) and families who’d like to volunteer together opt to help out with tasks shown below…you don’t need to be an expert in any of these fields to help out. There are many tasks that require only a willingness to learn and work with others.
Listed below are some of the non-construction volunteer opportunities:
Committees: We have many committees which often need assistance or new committee members. Please visit our Committees page for more information about each of them.
- Workshop leaders – volunteers with expertise in any number of fields, i.e., plumbing, electrical, heating/venting/etc that would be willing to teach staff and perhaps conduct monthly workshops.
- Media, Newsletter, Press – Anyone who is interested in writing for the newsletter, issuing press releases, making contact with local media, etc. No experience necessary, just enthusiasm. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator if you are interested.
- Office Assistance – We are always looking for assistance in mailings, answering the phone, and other general office activities.
ReStore – Retail outlet
- ReStore In store volunteers – The ReStore is always looking for volunteers to work in the store.
