NOTE: We are taking all possible precautions to protect our volunteers, staff, and the general public during the current health crisis. We are observing social distancing and encourage volunteers to bring their own masks and gloves.

Need community service hours for Bright Future, an Honors Society, or other school requirement? Want something awesome to put on your resume and/or college applications? Just bored and want something to do? Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity!

You'll also be able to meet new people, learn personal and professional life skills, and feel good about making a positive impact on your community. Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to improving housing conditions and transforming neighborhoods by building affordable housing for families in need; every hour of volunteer service goes directly to supporting this mission.

  • Note: Our construction volunteering opportunities are temporarily suspended while we transition between finishing up our completed construction sites and beginning our new ones. We appreciate our volunteers' interest in helping out on our construction site and equally appreciate your patience while we get our next construction sites up and running. In the meantime, please celebrate with us knowing that completed houses mean families achieving the stability and safety of their new forever homes! And check out the ongoing volunteer opportunities at our ReStore, detailed below:
  • Construction not your thing? Not everyone likes being outside in the heat, we get it. You can volunteer at our (air conditioned) ReStore! Go to habitatseminoleapopka.org/volunteer, and click the "Thrift Store Orientation" button. You must attend an orientation before you can volunteer at our ReStores. Orientations are currently being offered Wednesday and Saturday mornings at 9AM and Thursday evenings at 5PM; we are not currently accepting drop-ins to orientations so you must sign up for your intended orientation ahead of time at the above link. The ReStore offers opportunities for volunteers 7 days a week and during this time of change and innovation welcomes the help of volunteers now more than ever!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Any volunteer under 18 years old must have their waiver signed by a parent or guardian before you can do any volunteer hours with us. So regardless of whether you are volunteering at the ReStore or on the Construction site, download and print our waiver ( https://habitatseminoleapopka.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/2020-Waiver-Form-Fill.pdf) and make sure your parent or guardian signs it before you come in for orientation or your first day on the construction site.

We hope to see or hear from you soon!

Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity in Seminole County & Greater Apopka is an ecumenical, Christian housing ministry that seeks to build and renovate safe, decent, affordable housing in partnership with low- and very low-income residents in Seminole County and Apopka.

Description

While our origins are Christian in nature, we do not discriminate based on race, religion, sexual identity, age or any other factor. Simply put, we seek to give people of all backgrounds a hand up -- not a handout -- in order to ensure a better life and a brighter future. Hardworking & deserving families partner with our organization to achieve the American dream of homeownership. By proving a housing need, demonstrating their ability to pay and fulfilling their partnership requirement, partner families are transformed into homeowners. Habitat Seminole & Apopka has served nearly 130 families in its 20 years, but the need for affordable housing in our commnunity continues to grow. By partnering with local leaders, corporations & small businesses, philanthropic foundations and individuals, we hope to achieve our vision of a world in which everyone has a safe, decent, affordable place to live.
