Construction: Join other volunteers (both skilled and novice) on Wednesdays or Saturdays building homes for selected families throughout South Hampton Roads. Habitat General Stores (Norfolk and Virginia Beach): Proceeds from sales at our General Stores fund the construction of more Habitat homes for low-income families. Store volunteers provide a valuable service by sorting donations, staging and straightening displays, and assisting customers. Committees: Expand the capacity of Habitat by working with others toward unique goals. Serve on one of our vital committees – Land Acquisition, Construction, Public Relations, Volunteer Management, Faith in Action, A Brush with Kindness. Volunteer orientations are held on the fourth Saturday every month at 9 AM at the Habitat office. During the one-hour session, staff members cover such topics as Habitat’s origin, a brief history of our affiliate, an explanation of the family selection process, what to expect on the construction site, construction site safety, current and upcoming projects, and volunteer opportunities.
