REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER
Our Volunteer Activities are OPEN! We invite group and individual volunteers to join in on construction and ReStore opportunities. Please note that due to continuing Covid precautions, group sizes at the ReStores will be limited to 5-6 volunteers because the activities are indoor. Construction sites can accommodate up to 10-12 volunteers.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, believing in our mission, and supporting one important vision – that everyone deserves a decent place to live.
As you prepare to volunteer, we recommend taking a look at our Individual Volunteer Opportunities, Group Volunteer Opportunities, and Volunteer FAQs.
If you are under the age of 18, please refer to our Youth Guidelines before registering for any volunteer opportunity.

VOLUNTEERS WITH HOURS TO TRACK
If you are interested in volunteering and need your hours tracked for another organization (college, workplace, association, etc.), you may register online without prior approval. Please bring your timesheet (typically provided by the institution requesting your hours) to your volunteer shift to keep track of your hours. If not, our volunteer software can provide a volunteer report listing all volunteer dates and times. Please email our volunteer services department at email@example.com to request this verification report. Habitat Hillsborough is unable to verify community services hours for volunteers who do not sign-in and/or sign-out of their volunteer shift.
Court-ordered individuals and those seeking credit for high school and/or scholarship programs must attend our required volunteer screening to be eligible to volunteer.
Please contact our Volunteer Services Department to schedule an appointment to complete the necessary paperwork at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 813-239-2242 ext. 114.
For court-ordered individuals, you will need to bring (1) a copy of a valid form of ID, and (2) a copy of your court paperwork stating your charges before completing any paperwork. After you complete all necessary paperwork, your charges will be verified by the Volunteer Services Department, and if approved, you will be granted access to schedule your first volunteer shift. We do not accept any theft charges, violent charges, and/or charges involving minors.
Important: Court-Ordered Community Services Approval can take up to two business days. Habitat Hillsborough does not accept all court-ordered offenses and reserves the right to decline court-ordered community services volunteers. Please plan accordingly.
