COVID-19 Update

Volunteer activities to resume on a limited basis. For full details, please read our reopening plan.

Volunteer with us!

Within the mission and ministry of Habitat for Humanity there is a place for everyone to share their time, talents and treasure. Some volunteers pound nails or use a paintbrush, others participate in family selection or work in our ReStores. Each person is vital to our mission of eliminating poverty housing in Collier County.

Read on for more information about volunteering on our jobsite, or if you’re interested in non-building opportunities, please reach out to our Director of Volunteers.

What Work Can I Do?

Whether you’re 18 or 80, we guarantee there is a role for you if you’re looking to give your time. We have jobs for everyone, and we plan to get you involved in the job that maximizes your abilities and helps guide our mission forward.

And not all Habitat Collier volunteer jobs are on the job site! Whether you’re comfortable at a computer, interested in retail, or looking to work more closely with our partner families, there are a wide variety of opportunities to give your time and make a difference in the community. 

 

Construction

We are building in both Immokalee and Naples, and while we can use the help in both locations, there is a tremendous need in Immokalee. We encourage all people to make a trip out to Immokalee to create significant change and positive impact in this rural community.

ReStores

Opportunities are available for people of all skill and ability levels. From greeting and working with customers on the sales floor and arranging merchandise to preparing donated items for sale and even helping with building maintenance, there are positions available for everyone.

Office & More

Volunteers with special skills are a big help when it comes to our mission. Some lend a hand with filing and data entry, others lead pre-purchase courses with future homeowners and those who speak a second language tutor those looking to improve their English skills.
*please contact Jury directly to inquire about available openings.

Construction: The Basics

All are welcome and no experience is required to lend a hand on our job sites. Traditionally, we separate our job site volunteers and construction staff into three groups: Framers, Siders and Painters.

FRAMERS

Framers frame the houses, put the roofs on, and generally handle the preliminary aspects of construction and heavy-lifting as walls go up. This is the most intense physical labor available on the job site.

SIDERS

Siders put up siding and soffits, blue boards and install windows. While framing is the most intensive volunteer job, this is a moderate one that involves all the tasks in between the beginning and end phases of construction.

PAINTERS

Painters paint. They also tackle all of the remaining tasks that need to be done to finish a home, including caulking and laying vinyl floor tiles. This is the lightest (but just as rewarding) level of physical work on the job site.

But What Do I Wear?

Do what’s comfortable for you— whether that’s shorts and sneakers or jeans and steel-toed boots. We just ask that you wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.


Pro-tips

  1. Don’t leave home without it: sunscreen and bug spray could make or break your volunteer day!
  2. Accessorize: think hats, bandanas, and sunglasses.
  3. Check the weather: Will it rain? How hot will it be?
