“Habitat provides a simple but powerful avenue for people of different backgrounds to come together to achieve those most meaningful things in life.”

– Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter

Rutherford County Area Habitat for Humanity welcomes volunteers to help with various projects throughout the year.  From helping build houses to volunteering in the ReStore and at special events, we would love to get you engaged in the Habitat mission.

Please feel free to reach out to Megan Hutchings, RCHFH Community Outreach Coordinator, to discuss ways you can get involved.

The most well-known of Habitat for Humanity’s volunteer opportunities is construction volunteers. They are continually in demand due to Habitat’s ongoing building efforts. No construction experience or skills are required, though volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Volunteers undertake dozens of home construction tasks such as framing, blue board, window and door installation, interior trim, painting, hardware installation, landscaping and so on. Every volunteer day as well as task is just as important as the other as they all come together to build a home. Volunteers are scheduled on both an individual and team basis.


If you are interested in getting involved, but do not want to be on the build site, you also can expect a great time while volunteering at Habitat ReStore! Volunteers get to interact with ReStore staff as well as other volunteers, which may include future Habitat homeowners.

Volunteer needs at your local ReStore may vary, but the following are common ways you can help the ReStore:

Customer Service, Unloading Trucks, Pricing Inventory, DIY Projects, Furniture Repair, Organizing the ReStore Warehouse, & Helping with Donation Pick Ups.


If you require volunteer service hours for school, a club, or court ordered community service, Habitat may be able to help you. Please review the following information.

Volunteers desiring credit for community service hours must call the Community Outreach Coordinator and/or complete an in-person orientation with Habitat prior to beginning service.

RCHFH accepts all charges except theft and anything that is violent or predatory.

Please allow adequate time to complete the required number of hours. While Habitat will work with you as much as possible, if you wait until the last minute, your needs and our schedule may not align. It is your responsibility to plan.

Volunteer Application & Safety Form

All volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer application and safety form prior to volunteering.

Volunteers can pick up the forms at the RCHFH Office, have them emailed, or pick them up on site.

Please feel free to reach out to Megan Hutchings, RCHFH Community Outreach Coordinator, to inquire about receiving a volunteer application.
