COVID-19 Volunteer Guidance

We request that our volunteers:

 Self-monitor your health prior to reporting to the construction site; if you do not feel healthy please do not report for your shift.

Bring a face mask that you are comfortable wearing, along with your own work gloves.

Please DO NOT come out for your volunteer shift if you answer 'yes' within 24 hours of your shift to any of the following three health monitoring questions :

Health Monitoring Questions:

1. Have you or a member of your family had a fever in the past two weeks?  

2. Do you or a member of your household have a cough or shortness of breath?

3. In the past two weeks have you been exposed to anyone who has or is being tested for COVID-19? 

Community Service Volunteers
We accept ONLY nonviolent and no larceny offenses. All volunteers seeking hours for court, whether lawyer recommended or court ordered, must complete an intake prior to registering to volunteer and all hours must be completed at our Norfolk ReStore location.

Letters will not be provided to those who do not first complete an intake.

For more information and to schedule an intake email: volunteer@shrhabitat.org

You must be 18 to volunteer in Construction.

Those 16 and older may volunteer in the ReStore with a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian (see below) returned to: volunteer@shrhabitat.org
