Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome to volunteer at Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley! Those ages 16 and 17 need to volunteer alongside a parent.

New Individual Volunteers are asked to attend a New Volunteer Orientation before your first volunteer experience. Orientations are held the first and third Saturdays of each month at 10am at our ReStore located at 800 N. State St. in Elgin. Create a profile via VolunteerUp to register.

Construction Volunteering

We build every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8:30-4pm. The construction calendar is maintained via VolunteerUp.


ReStore relies on volunteers for operations. There is a wide variety of tasks to get involved with including receiving donations, processing items to sell and assisting customers through their purchases. Volunteer opportunities are scheduled though Lance Dailey, Coordinator of Volunteers.

Skill Based Volunteering

Habitat has a variety of needs throughout the year for skill-based volunteering. Let us know if you have a talent you would like to share!
