Highlands County Habitat for Humanity provides opportunities for people and organizations to experience the power of working together to transform lives and improve the quality of life in our community through volunteering. Habitat offers numerous volunteer opportunities, so that you can find what you love doing and have a meaningful, rewarding experience with us!

Construction Volunteer

Work side-by- side with fellow volunteers, future homeowners, and site supervisors to help build our homes. No specific skills are required except the willingness to work as a team! Training is given on site to all new volunteers. We build with volunteers Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. (or 8 a.m.-12 p.m.). Saturday works days are scheduled on an individual group basis or as construction schedules require.

ReStore Volunteer

Volunteer at our ReStore and help price merchandise, organize the showroom, assist with moving donations, sort clothing, and much more! Our ReStore features reusable building materials, furniture, appliances, household items, and clothing; and store proceeds help Habitat build homes in our community. ReStore Volunteers can choose scheduled or flexible volunteer activities at our Downtown location.

ReStore Address:
137 S. Commerce St.
Sebring, FL 33870

Store Hours:
Monday-Friday: 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Saturday: 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

Lunch Bunch Volunteer

Provide lunch for our hardworking construction or ReStore volunteers. Lunch Bunch Volunteers donate funds for a lunch, reach out to a local restaurant for donations, purchase lunch, or even make lunch for our volunteers. You can provide lunch on an on-going basis or just once!

Office Volunteer

Work in our administrative office assisting staff with various projects such as assembling newsletters and solicitation letters, assisting with data entry, filing, and answering phones. Office volunteer hours can vary to fit your schedule!
