Volunteer FAQ

HOW CAN INDIVUALS GET INVOLVED?

We love help from volunteers! Please check out our volunteer positions.

HOW DOES MY TIME VOLUNTEERING HELP HABITAT?

Our volunteers help ease our operational costs and keep our overhead cost down so that more of the funds raised at our ReStore go to support Habitat Greater San Francisco's mission to build and sustain affordable homeownership opportunities in Marin, San Francisco, and the Peninsula.

Nationally, the ReStore program is one of the largest sources of unrestricted funding for Habitat, second only to the mortgage repayments we receive.

IS IT OKAY FOR VOLUNTEERS TO ARRIVE LATE OR LEAVE EARLY?

New volunteers who arrive late or miss the volunteer orientation and important safety information cannot be permitted to volunteer.

As the ReStore is a very busy retail store, we rely on volunteer timeliness to help ensure that ReStore operations run smoothly and efficiently. Volunteers may leave early with prior permission from the Volunteer Coordinator, ReStore Manager, or Assistant Manager.

However, experienced Regular Volunteers who work with limited staff supervision can arrange their schedule with a manager beforehand.

CAN MY VOLUNTEER SERVICE HOURS COUNT TOWARD SCHOOL OR TRAFFIC TICKETS?

We welcome volunteers who need to complete community service hours. As a 501(c)3 Nonprofit, we can verify your service hours for school or court. There are some limitations to court-ordered community service. Please contact volunteer@habitatgsf.org for more information.

DO VOLUNTEERS RECEIVE A DISCOUNT FOR WORKING AT RESTORE?

Regular Volunteers who serve 50 hours qualify for a 20% merchandise discount. However, merchandise must be available to the public for one working day before a volunteer may purchase it.

Regular Volunteers also earn tshirts, ReStore-branded materials and invitations to social events, and much more, as part of our Milestone program.
