Volunteering with Habitat
Please contact us to sign up to volunteer:
Sioux City Metro Area (Riverside, West Side, or at the ReStore)- Volunteer Coordinator – 712-255-6244
Sioux County (Rock Valley Project or Alton Project coming soon!) – Sioux County Director – 712-476-2804
Volunteers need to be at least 16 years old. All volunteers will need to sign a Volunteer Information Form/ Waiver and Release of Liability before beginning work with Habitat. Safety is very important to us so we require all volunteers to follow all Habitat policies to make sure they are safe and enjoy their experience.
Build a House
Join us and work on building homes. We can schedule volunteers Monday through Saturday 8 AM to 4 PM. We can accommodate for individuals or groups of up to eight volunteers at a time unless we have a special project going on that requires more people. Construction volunteers are expected to report to the build site at their designated time for registration. You will go over the tasks of the day, get safety information and learn more about Habitat. Be prepared to work hard, learn new skills and have fun! If you work a full day you will have a break for lunch. You may bring a sack lunch to eat on site or you may eat at a local restaurant.
Home Restoration Program
Volunteers for our Home Restoration Program will work with existing homeowners to repair and improve their properties.
There are many opportunities available with something for everyone! Assist with small office tasks, cleaning, facility maintenance, custodial work, mowing, or snow removal.
It takes many hands to accept donations, prepare items to sell, set them up in the store, maintain a clean store, greet guests and help customers find the unique items they’re looking for. Volunteers are needed year-round, Monday through Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM. Regular ReStore volunteers wishing to help with donation pick-up or cashier help will need to attend a short training.
