Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Ventura County. As HFHVC begins a phased reactivation of our on-site operations, we remain determined to place the safety of our stakeholders—from homeowner families and staff to volunteers, ReStore shoppers and supporters—as our highest priority. For now, we will move forward without on-site volunteers. However, there are a number of ways that you can support our build operations and homebuyers remotely. View our full list of remote volunteer opportunities below.

New Construction, Habitat Home Repair & Special Projects

Virtual Habitat Huddle: Join our Weekly Crew Zoom Huddle to hear updates and fellowship with other leaders. With volunteer efforts suspended for many Ventura County non-profits, we know our incredible Habitat supporters are missing the build site and the tangible impact they have on their community. We created a digital space to keep our larger volunteer family connected, smiling, and continuing to share the work of our affiliate during this crisis.

Sign up to be a Crew Lead: Leadership of volunteers on the construction sites is critical to completing our home builds on time and on budget. Crew Leader volunteers will be trained to assist Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County by leading and training construction volunteers as well as learning and passing on the mission of HFHVC. In addition, they will provide direct supervision of projects and ensure that goals established by the Habitat construction staff are achieved. 

Sign up to be a Site Host: To maintain site safety throughout the course of the upcoming build season we are looking for committed and consistent individuals willing to track volunteer’s arrival and departure time, set-up tables outside the tool trailer in order clean and process tools throughout the day, and assist with all build day operations in close collaboration with Team Build Sponsor Liaisons, Crew Leads, and Homeowners. This position will be required for all build days moving forward and is perfect for existing Crew Leads, families, students over the age of 16, and anyone who is interested in serving in a leadership role crucial to our operations. 

Sign up to be a volunteer photographer & videographer for the coming build season: If you are savvy behind the lens and interested in advancing the mission of affordable housing in Ventura County, consider donating your time and skill for a few special photography projects coming later this fall!
