Volunteer Behind the Scenes at Habitat

Building dreams takes lots of behind-the-scenes work from dedicated volunteers.

There are a variety of ways to do this beyond the construction site.


Translation Services: On-call volunteers who are fluent in Spanish are needed to translate documents and to translate during meetings and events.

Data Entry/Office Specialists: Help in our Waukegan office or ReStore office with data entry, filing, answering phones, and other general office duties. Hours are flexible, but a weekly commitment is requested.

Office volunteers are generally utilized Monday through Friday between 9am to 4pm. If you have office/administrative skills or have another skill that you think would benefit Habitat for Humanity Lake County or you have questions about volunteering, call our office at 847-623-1020 ext.110 or e-mail info@habitatlc.org.
