General Policies and Guidelines for Volunteers on a Habitat Build

Before coming out to volunteer on a Habitat worksite, please consider and comply with the following guidelines for a safe and pleasant day of fun and fellowship!

Volunteer Guidelines for Construction Sites

When you arrive on the job site, it is imperative that you identify the Habitat individual in charge. Our Executive Director is Tim Williams.  All questions and problems should be directed to Tim or the employee in charge of the worksite. We acknowledge that everyone has different skills so it is important that you recognize you own limitations and work within them. The following guidelines will help make the work site safe, orderly and enjoyable. Remember, this is a CONSTRUCTION SITE!

Whether you are an individual volunteer or plan on bringing a group of 5 or more, please contact the Habitat office in advance to register and schedule to work. Our work hours are from 9am to 3 pm. We will provide you or your group with a Habitat Hall County T-shirt and water and when we can, we will provide lunch.

All volunteers must complete a waiver form. They will be available once you arrive at the worksite or it can be obtained from the ReStore and returned prior to the work day.  Please remember that the Habitat insurance policy requires all volunteers be 16 years of age or older and a parent must sign the waiver.

Wear clothing you won’t mind getting dirty. Check the weather and dress appropriately. If the weather is warm, remember to bring sunscreen and wear a hat to protect your face. If the weather is cool, dress in layers. Regardless of the season of the year or weather forecast, sturdy, closed-toe shoes are required for your safety. You will not be allowed to work on site in sandals or flip flops. Work gloves are always recommended.

Work of this type can be strenuous, especially if you are unaccustomed to physical labor. Please be sure to pace yourself and take breaks when necessary. Even those who are in shape and used to hard labor are asked to take a break as needed.

For more information please contact us at (678) 450-5998 or volunteer@habitathallcounty.org.

The magic of Habitat is that anyone who can donate their time and energy can make a real difference. Habitat puts God’s love into ACTION.

Please be aware, volunteering and court ordered community service hours are served in different ways and at different places. If you are in need of community service work, you must present your need as such, as volunteer hours will not be verified as community service.
