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 must complete an intake prior to registering to volunteer and all hours must be completed at our Norfolk ReStore location.

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

There are many ways to become involved with Habitat SHR:

  • Help build a house with Construction, no experience necessary, we provide tools and guidance.  

  • Assist in our ReStores, our thrift stores where we sell furniture, appliances and building supplies.

  • Join our Ambassador, Red Hat or Blue Hat Programs and become even more involved with one of our Long Term
    Volunteer Programs.


  • Be a Habitat Helper. Join our Salvage Team, get some experience helping in our volunteer office, or help us set a good example in our community by helping with grounds keeping at our offices.

  • We are even looking for volunteers to start up a Habitat Young Professional networking and building group. 

  • Youth too young to volunteer in person on our build sites or in our ReStore can still support our mission. Youth Volunteering lists several ways youth groups, families and schools can help. 

For more information on each of these opportunities or to locate a schedule for construction or the ReStores, click on the bolded, linked opportunity name.

Volunteers must be 16 or older to volunteer in our Restores and 18 and up to help in Construction, or as a Habitat Helper.

Those 16-18, volunteering without adult supervision must have a Youth Waiver on file signed by their parent/guardian.
