Construction/Build Site Volunteer Opportunities

Are all your volunteers utilizing our Volunteer website and Training Courses? Now your volunteers can be educated on what to expect when they volunteer for Habitat for Humanity as well as learn safety techniques before they even arrive on the job site! Please direct your volunteers to www.hfhvolunteerinsurance.com. We also encourage you to establish a link to the volunteer website on your affiliate website.
Your efforts to complete safety training and encouraging those on your worksite to participate exemplifies your dedication to providing a safe jobsite, fostering safe working habits in your crew, and a focus on reducing injury or loss. Thank you!

Paint Bulking – assist staff in processing donated paint, and recycle into re-useable paint to be sold to the public. Great opportunity for younger volunteers ages 14-17!
Demolition and Deconstruction – SCHFH's deconstruction department can use individual volunteers and groups on an irregular basis to assist with partial and complete demolition of existing structures. Many materials salvaged from such projects are sold in our ReStore.
Office Volunteer Opportunities
Back up Administrative Assistants are needed to work Monday-Friday from 11am-1pm to help with answering phones, greeting visitors at the door, and other related responsibilities. A regular commitment of one day per week would be ideal.
Help with other office projects is also needed on an irregular basis.
Committee Volunteer Opportunities
Scott County Habitat's committees are hugely important to the successful operation and implementation of all aspects of our vision. We can use volunteers, at times, to serve on various Committees. It is recommend that new volunteers serve in another capacity at Scott County Habitat (construction, ReStore, etc.) first in order to better understand SCHFH before joining one of these committees.
If you are interested in any of these wonderful volunteer opportunities please contact our office at 502-868-1050 or Sign up here!
