We have everything you need to know listed below for on- and off-site volunteering. And if you have questions not covered here, just call or email us and we’ll be happy to answer them.
Volunteers perform a variety of construction tasks such as house wrap, window install, caulking, vinyl siding, painting, landscaping, laying sod, and lot clean up. To volunteer on a construction site, please follow the instructions below to sign up online. We welcome individuals 16 years old and older. All volunteers must register and schedule online prior to volunteering.
Closed-toe tennis shoes or boots are required. Clothes you don’t mind getting dirty are strongly encouraged. Light-colored, cotton clothing and a hat are recommended for the summer (shorts are okay). Layered clothing is recommended for the winter. Jewelry is not allowed because it can get damaged or lost very easily.
HabiJax will provide all tools needed for the day’s tasks. A reusable water bottle is suggested.
Contact the Volunteer Services Department at (904) 208-6645 if you’re interested in volunteering in a non-construction area.
Volunteers are needed to help with office tasks including filing, mailing and data entry.
Volunteers are needed to lead workshops for homebuyers in financial knowledge, neighborhood development and personal and family growth. Also needed are volunteers with extensive knowledge in plumbing, electrical, heating/venting, etc. that would be willing to conduct monthly workshops.
The ReStores are home improvement retail outlets where new and refurbished building materials, cabinets, appliances, furniture, lighting and accessories are sold to the public at reduced prices. Proceeds from the store go to build more HabiJax homes.
The stores are open Monday – Saturday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.. Our ReStore relies on volunteers for day-to-day operations. Read more about becoming a ReStore Volunteer.
Volunteers help with many different tasks around the store including, but not limited to, special projects, processing donations or assisting with deconstruction jobs.
