Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Corpus Christi. HFHCC volunteers are the heart of our organization.
Hundreds of volunteers assist in various activities each year. Our volunteers build homes, raise funds, provide lunches for volunteers on the work site, work at our ReStore, the office and much more. As a matter of fact, volunteers are a key reason HFHCC is able to build affordable, decent homes for qualified low income families. You can Volunteer as an individual or as a Group. For more information, contact 361.289.1740 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have opportunities now in construction and the ReStore!
Proper working attire and closed toed shoes are a must, to make your day more comfortable and enjoyable. Regardless of the tasks being performed, volunteers should, at all times, wear appropriate clothing to the site including thick soled, closed toed shoes. Keep track of all of your belongings, as HFH CC assumes no responsibility for lost, damaged or stolen items. Other suggested items are plastic drinking cups, work boots, gloves, wide brimmed hat/visor, sunglasses, and sun block. We also have very specific Age Regulations for the Work site.
Please note you will need to attend an in person orientation before registering to volunteer in construction.
Group leaders should also attend an orientation, however we recognize that this may not be possible for everyone. Please email email@example.com for alternatives to an in person group orientation.
Previous construction volunteers should take orientation as well, but we can waive this requirement on a case by case basis. Please email us at the email above for more information and include your full name so we can determine if we can waive orientation.
Age Regulations On The Work Site Rules
1. All volunteers that are on the work site are required to sign a waiver.
2. A volunteer must be 18 years or older to use power tools. A separate waiver is required by all persons 18 or under and must be signed by the volunteer and their parent or legal guardian. Minor waiver forms are available if needed, please call the office.
3. For safety reasons, we are unable to accommodate youth under the age of 16 on the build site, in the warehouse, or as a volunteer in the Habitat for Humanity office. 16 and 17 year-olds are allowed to do general carpentry, which can include activities such as hammering, installing insulation, etc. They may not do roofing, use power tools or work at heights above 6 feet. Rules pertaining to height requirements and power tools must be followed. All youth are required to wear appropriate safety equipment for the task they are performing.
