*Due to continued concern regarding COVID-19, we are unable to accept any new volunteers at this time.*
Habitat for Humanity of Tuolumne County relies on volunteers, with any and every skill set, to pursue its mission of building strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter.
Volunteers can help out in the ReStore; pound some nails or paint (or a variety of other construction tasks) at our ongoing builds at Parrotts Ferry Village; help plan events or fundraisers on our behalf; or by joining one of our committees that helps select homebuyers or walks them through the home buying process.

- Sit on the homeowner support committee. This committee is a really rewarding and important job. Members develop a bond with the homebuyers before and during the home construction. The homeowner support committees help Habitat homebuyers navigate through the loan processes, homeowner education classes and sweat equity. This committee requires a time commitment, as members partner with homebuyers for the home-buying and construction processes. Members check in with homebuyers once a week. Members of this committee must have a Live Scan background check completed by local law enforcement or the Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools Office.
- Sit on the home owner selection committee. The home owner selection committee helps publicize application periods and selects the most qualified candidates to buy Habitat homes. This committee meets only a few times a year and requires a short time commitment. Members of this committee must have a Live Scan background check completed by local law enforcement or the Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools Office.
