Questions about Volunteering

We accept all people regardless of ability or capability! We will work with you to accommodate your needs.

We accept volunteers ages 16 and up.

All volunteers must sign a waiver before participating. The waiver will be available online after registration, or sent via email to print and bring with you on your scheduled day. Minors (16 – 18) will need a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

Volunteers help with all aspects of our mission! The following list is an example of typical tasks and may include other duties as needed.

  • Construction – Construction projects include house wrap, installing windows, hanging vinyl siding, painting and caulking and landscaping.
  • ReStores – Store operation tasks include loading and unloading items, organizing and tidying and assisting customers.
  • Virtual and Special Projects – Vary based on the project.

Willing partners make the difference! The costs of construction for one HabiJax home have risen about 50% in only a few years. Our goal this year is to build 32 homes in Jacksonville and we cannot do it without support from our partners.

Many teams are stepping up to participate in our Community Partner Program, contributing to our two greatest needs at HabiJax: financial and volunteer resources. Learn more about the benefits >
