Habitat has a place for every volunteer! Individuals concerned about substandard housing in Hernando County are asked to volunteer for the various committees. Committee chairpersons are always looking for dedicated persons to serve on committees such as:
- Family Selection
- Family Advocate
- Fund Development
- Marketing/Special Events
- Church Relations
We need you! If you are interested in being a volunteer, now's your chance. Habitat is always looking for individuals or groups of volunteers to help with our Home Build projects, as well as special events we have going on. In upcoming months, we would also like to start moving forward on a Fund Development Committee and a Marketing/Special Events Committee. If you're interested, please give our office a call.
Nothing builds cohesion like building a Habitat home together. Manage an existing group or start a new one—our projects involve companies, service clubs, professional associations, church groups and many other kinds of organizations.
Join us, and work alongside others who've committed themselves to action.
We appreciate all of our volunteers and do our best to make sure everyone has a fantastic build day. Part of having a great build day is safety. Due to the hazards of construction work, there are some limitations on what volunteers under 18 may do.
Minors 16–17 are allowed to participate in construction work, but are prohibited from using power tools; being on ladders, scaffolding, or walk boards more than 4’ higher than surrounding area; being on platforms or decks without hand or guard rails when more than 4’ above surrounding area; and being on a roof or participating in roofing. Minor groups participating on a build site must have adult supervision. All minors must complete a liability waiver and have it signed by their parent or guardian.
Ages 15 and Under
Minors 15 and under are not allowed on site unless it is to bring food and drinks during the lunch break when there is no active construction.
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore helps to support the mission of Habitat for Humanity by selling donated building materials and home furnishings to fund our homeownership program. ReStore volunteers support the vision of safe, decent and affordable housing for families in our neighborhood and around the world. Join us for a fun day of greeting customers, donation intake, cleaning and merchandising.
Marketing/Special Events Committee:
Volunteers are the reason why our events are possible. We are always looking for help setting up, cleaning up and running the event itself. We have two major events coming up, and are in need of your time!
Construction crews work Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m (subject to change). An email will be sent out the Friday before to let you know the work schedule for the following week. Volunteers may choose to work some or all of these hours.
To volunteer in any capacity, call the office at (352) 754-1159, complete the online registration form or DOWNLOAD A VOLUNTEER APPLICATION. The office is open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday and we always welcome visitors.
