How to Volunteer

Help Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County transform your community by volunteering with us! Your participation as a volunteer helps local families build strength, stability and self-reliance.

Volunteer Orientation

New volunteers are asked to attend an orientation prior to their service with Habitat Snohomish. At orientation, volunteers learn about the many volunteer opportunities available. Orientation is offered at least twice per month and is required prior to volunteering. Please sign up for an orientation here.

Volunteer Opportunities

You can help make affordable housing a reality for hardworking families in Snohomish County by volunteering with Habitat in home construction, Habitat Stores, our donations truck, our office and special committees and board of directors positions.

Other volunteer roles include AmeriCorps, internships, Mission Continues Fellowships and special events. Groups interested in volunteering should see our corporate and faith partner page or contact our Volunteer Engagement Manager.

What To Expect

Court Ordered Community Service

Habitat Snohomish conducts a background check on all prospective volunteers. Court ordered volunteers who pass the criminal background check are required to volunteer in our Lynnwood or Everett Store and must complete a minimum 20 hours of community service. Questions about criminal history and court order eligibility can be directed to our Volunteer Engagement Manager.
