NOTE: Due to the current health crisis we are taking appropriate measures to protect our staff, volunteers, and the general public. In compliance with the Seminole County Mask Mandate, we ask that everyone wear a mask and observe social distancing.
IF YOU ARE FEELING ILL OR KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WITH COVID PLEASE STAY HOME AND TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
However, we need the help of volunteers now more than ever!
You don’t have to swing a hammer to help families in need achieve a safe and affordable place to call home! If you are a high school student trying to complete Bright Future hours for college, our ReStore is a great place to get your hours done quickly, on your own schedule, and in a way that directly helps the community!
Our ReStore is a furniture and construction overstock thrift store that directly raises money for our home building fund. Volunteers at our ReStore greet and help customers, sort donations, set up displays, stage furniture, and work on any number of other projects to help our ReStore run smoothly and successfully.
Help is needed Tuesdays through Sundays, 8AM - 5PM. You are free to volunteer for as many hours as you'd like within those operating hours, we work with your schedule!
To volunteer, you will need to attend an orientation. To find a date and sign up, go to https://habitatseminoleapopka.org/volunteer/ and click "Sign Up For An Orientation." We are currently offering orientations once a week - Saturday mornings at 9AM and Thursday evenings at 5PM on alternating weekly schedules. For the purposes of social distancing we are not accepting drops ins for the orientations, so you must sign up ahead of time by following the above link. After you've completed your orientation you are welcome to start volunteering right away, however it fits into your schedule.
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/2020/12/2021-Waiver.pdf) and make sure your parent or guardian signs it before you come in for orientation or your first day on the construction site.
About Habitat for Humanity in Seminole County & Greater Apopka, Inc.
PO BOX 181010, Casselberry, FL 32718, US
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.
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.
