Types of Volunteer Opportunities
Construction crews are the heart of Habitat for Humanity. No previous experience is necessary to volunteer. Each house will have a leader to instruct volunteers and all the tools and safety equipment our volunteers will need.
Members of the lunch crew are an incredibly important part of the building process and are greatly appreciated by our volunteers and construction staff. Members of the lunch crew provide food, beverages and paper products for approximately 30 volunteers on any scheduled build day. Providing lunch for one house (30 volunteers) is worth 10 hours of community service.
Our weekday crews consist of skilled crewmembers that work on the work site or in our warehouse on Wednesdays and Thursdays. These crews follow the same guidelines as our other construction volunteers; however, we do not provide lunch on these days.
Volunteer Services Assistant
This is an ideal position for volunteers who want to be on the worksite but, due to physical limitations, cannot participate in construction. This volunteer will help the Volunteer Coordinator with service duties such as signing in volunteers, mailings and orientations.
Habitat Home Center (formerly the ReStore)
Volunteers are used to answer phones, post community service hours, assist customers and stock shelves. Volunteers are also used to man booths at special events for the Home Centers.
Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio's Wrecking Crew tears out usable building supplies from local remodeling projects. Salvaged materials are sold in our Home Centers. Volunteers days and times will vary depending on need.
Volunteers in the office assist with answering phones, data entry, filing, bulk mailing, etc.
If you are interested in volunteering please call Volunteer Services at 210.223.5203
NOTE: Community Service
All court mandated community service MUST be completed at one of the Habitat Home Centers. Volunteering on the construction site WILL NOT count towards court-ordered hours.
