Volunteer

We are constantly looking for volunteers to help us in our goal to eliminate substandard housing.

On Site Building:
We work at the construction site Wednesday through Saturday from 7:30 until 3:30 in the summer months, and from 8:00 until 3:30 in the cooler months. No construction experience is necessary, just bring a great attitude. Groups and individuals are welcome. If you would like to get involved call the Volunteer office at 336.887.8388, Ext. 27 to schedule your work day.
 
Ask about special groups like the Weekday Warriors, and Women Build!

For rain date information, dial 336.887.8388, Ext. 28 for a recorded message stating whether we will be working that day or not.

Our current worksite is in the Washington Terrace Park neighborhood of High Point.

ReStore (retail store):
The Habitat ReStore can also use volunteers from Monday through Friday.  Volunteers at the ReStore help move merchandise, run the cash register, and drive the truck to pick up donated goods. In addition, you get a store discount! It is located at 133 Montlieu Avenue in High Point. If you are interested in volunteering at the ReStore, please call the Volunteer office at 336.887.8388, Ext. 27.

Administrative Offices and Other Opportunities:
If you enjoy working with computers, fundraising, event planning, etc. we may have a place for you! We have several committees that plan and coordinate Habitat operations.

What are your skills? Come and join us!

Age Regulations:
Anyone under 18 is considered to be a youth volunteer. Our worksite policy is that youth aged 16-17 will be allowed on site provided they work no more than 4 feet off of the ground, and that they do not use power tools. Youth 14 – 15 may work on the build site doing landscaping, cleanup, and painting when power tools are not in use.

We try to involve young people in building support functions when possible. This could include preparing lunches or snacks for Saturday groups, or making a housewarming basket for a homeowner. Call us to inquire about other youth opportunities!

Information for Groups

Time: Meet at the construction site promptly at the time assigned.   We will go over paperwork, a safety orientation, and assign tasks for the day.

  • Each volunteer will need to complete and sign an adult or youth Liability Release form. Volunteers under age 18 should use the youth waiver form. This waiver will be kept on file at the Habitat for Humanity office, and is good until the end of the calendar year.
