Volunteers are needed to help build!
Habitat CFC provides many volunteer opportunities each year for individuals ages 5 and up. Volunteer with a corporate, school or religious team or participate as and individual on a build or in one of our affinity programs such as Women Build, Habitat for Heroes or Youth United. Whether you are interested in swinging a hammer, organizing a fundraiser, or serving on a committee, we welcome your participation.
We are now scheduling individuals on selected days throughout the year.
Volunteer dates are scheduled dependent on work flow and change often. Please continue to check for updates. To watch our Construction Safety Orientation Video please go here.
If you are interested in helping with event committees, data entry, grants, social media, photography or other administrative work, please contact Eileen Bakos, Director of Volunteer and Corporate Engagement at email@example.com.
The ReStore relies on dedicated volunteers to run its daily operations. Many volunteer opportunities are available. To learn about the opportunities please visit the ReStore Website.
Core Volunteers are individuals who are willing to make a commitment of volunteering regularly at Habitat CFC. Can you give one day a week? Are you interested in learning new skills and coming out on a regular basis to help lead other volunteers? If so, you may be Core material! Watch a video of a Core volunteer at work here. Contact Eileen Bakos, Director of Volunteer and Corporate Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
What Can Volunteers Expect from Habitat CFC?
Safe Work Environments – Whether on a construction site, the ReStore, or at a special event, we will keep you safe. Safety orientations kick off every volunteer construction day, and safety equipment is provided.
Productive Work Days – Everything you need (tools, supplies, and a work plan) will be waiting for you, and you’ll be able to see tangible results of your work.
Leadership – No experience is necessary, and we mean it. Our staff and volunteer crew leaders are trained to teach you everything you need to know.
Patience, Perspective, and a Sense of Humor – We work hard, and we have fun doing it!
What does Habitat Expect from Volunteers?
Prompt Arrival – Promptly starting each volunteer shift ensures we can finish our homes on schedule and having everyone on hand for orientation makes our work sites safer and more efficient.
Safety – Please use tools and equipment as instructed and adhere to safety procedures. Closed-toed shoes and a volunteer liability waiver are required before volunteering.
Commitment – If you sign up, we count on you, and our families count on you!
Flexibility – Sometimes weather doesn’t cooperate, a task doesn’t go exactly according to plan, or we need to refocus our efforts on a special project. Either way, it’s cool. We make it work!
