Volunteers are the heart and soul of our Habitat affiliate.
Being a Habitat for Humanity volunteer can be one of the most generous and personally rewarding acts you can undertake. Helping those in need of decent and safe housing gives you the satisfaction of making a difference for a family and it also strengthens the community. Best of all, it’s fun!
Habitat for Humanity of Craven County recognizes and respects the hard work of its many volunteers. In fact, we could not exist without everyone who believes in and shares our mission by giving their time, skills, and effort. We always need volunteers and have multiple opportunities for individuals or groups. You don’t have to commit to a set schedule; we understand people may work and have busy lives, so you can commit to as much or a little time as your personal schedule permits.
Federal, state and local laws stipulate age guidelines for volunteers under 18 years of age. All worksite volunteers must be at least 16 years old; anyone at a worksite between the ages of 16 to 18 years must first have written permission from a parent or guardian, and may not operate power tools. Youth not yet 16 years of age are still welcome to volunteer for the ReStore or specially assigned projects.Let's get started!
