Groups

Currently, we do not have an active build and group opportunities are somewhat limited. Groups interested in volunteering should visit our groups page or contact our Volunteer Engagement Manager at volunteer@habitatsnohomish.org for more information or to be notified when more group opportunities become available.

What To Expect

  • A morning huddle begins the day at each volunteer site to outline the day’s agenda and safety precautions.
  • All equipment is provided and no experience is necessary, Habitat supervisors train volunteers to complete assigned work.
  • Habitat provides a safe and enjoyable work space for volunteers. You’ll walk away feeling you made a difference in our community!

Court Ordered Community Service

Habitat Snohomish conducts a background check on all prospective volunteers. Court ordered volunteers are required to volunteer in our Lynnwood, Smokey Point or Everett Stores and must complete a minimum 20 hours of community service.

Please note, any shifts that extend beyond 6 hours per day require you to take a 30-minute rest break by law.  Your rest break will not be included in your total service hours ( i.e. If you complete a 9:30 – 5:00p shift, you will receive credit for 7 hours for that day.  You will not receive service credit for your 30-minute break). 

 Questions about criminal history and court ordered eligibility can be directed to our Volunteer Engagement Manager, Genevieve Hewitt, at volunteer@habitatsnohomish.org.
