Volunteer for Community Service or School

As a non-profit organization, volunteering at Habitat for Humanity can fulfill most community service hours. 

Students (age 16 or older) who need volunteer hours as part of their curriculum can earn them at any of our five ReStores, or at any of our Construction or Deconstruction volunteer sites.  

State-allocated  or court-ordered community service hours can only be completed at the ReStores in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Fuquay, or Wake Forest after attending the mandatory orientation session. We consider this a short-term commitment and have a process that is separate from our long-term ReStore volunteer program.  We accurately track your hours and provide you with the paperwork needed to certify your completion of any required service.

We hold half-hour mandatory orientation sessions at each store location each week:

Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.

Saturday at 10:30 a.m.

REQUIREMENTS: You must be 18 years of age or older to complete court-ordered or state-allocated volunteer hours. You must attend a mandatory orientation session prior to starting your volunteer service. No application or appointment is necessary; just show up for one of the half-hour orientation sessions. These are held at each of the ReStore locations in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, or Fuquay-Varina, or Wake Forest. These mandatory orientation sessions will provide an overview of expectations and safety rules, as well as our mission and how your service helps us succeed. Some paperwork will be required. You must attend the mandatory orientation session at the store in which you plan on completing your service hours. You cannot begin any community service hours until you have attended an orientation session.
