Community Service

Habitat welcomes Court-Ordered Community Service volunteers. Volunteers completing Court-Ordered Community Service must be pre-approved before beginning hours by setting up an appointment with a volunteer coordinator.

Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley reserves the right to consider offenses on a case-by-case basis as to whether an individual will be allowed to volunteer for court-ordered community service with our organization. Certain offenses, including, but not limited to, felony convictions, arson, burglary, assault, battery, robbery and theft will not be accepted.
