Volunteer

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, safe and affordable housing gives you the satisfaction of making a difference for a family while it also strengthens the community. Best of all, it’s fun! You can learn new skills and meet some great people, including working with the homeowner and their family.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers

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.

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 both individuals or groups. You don’t have to commit to a set schedule; we understand people may work and have busy lives. We can be flexible to allow you to commit to as much or a little time as your personal schedule permits.

Federal, state and local laws stipulate age guidelines for volunteers less than 18 years of age. All construction 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 or climb ladders. Youth not yet 16 years of age are still welcome to volunteer for the ReStore or specially assigned projects.

Let's get started!  Set up your Volunteer Profile Account and then sign up for a Volunteer Orientation and a volunteer opportunity that meets your interest and time schedule. If you already have an Volunteer Hub account, you can sign in and start signing up for volunteer opportunities.

You must be a registered volunteer and have completed a volunteer orientation to sign up for a shift.
