Community Outreach at its best merges with Recycling, Reuse & Restore
Distribution & Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) – Kalispell, MT 59901 – October 27, 2017
When a service provides hope for family shelter and providing materials to improve existing homes, the helping atmosphere is motivational and contagious. Volunteers make up 90% of those who do the work, so having a paid position was an honor and instills a real sense of purpose even though it's low pay.
Real world issues erupted from time to time when trying to coordinate donations and having to deal with a persons idea what is acceptable materials and or furnishings (e.g. sometimes we seemed to be garbage collectors and worse was dealing how to dispose of it properly all trying not to offend anyone. Also, buyers ranged from realizing they were supporting building programs so prices were seen as fair where others thought because it had been donated they should get the items for absurdly low prices ( e.g. $300+ new bath enclosure donated by a contractor and a customer offer of $5.00 becoming irate and rude to our team)
Good will self affirming family support volunteer rock!
Hands-on and very involved volunteers at Habitat for Humanity
Student Volunteer (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – October 25, 2017
Habitat for Humanity is a humanitarian organisation that provides the locals with affordable household items as well as construct houses for various members of the community. I strongly recommend Habitat for Humanity especially to people who like to give back to the community.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – October 24, 2017
I loved the atmosphere at Habitat. It was very casual and not stressful. I assisted in a number of different departments and learned many new skills. My coworkers were easy to get along with as well. I was let go from this position because of budget constraints for the new fiscal year. I would not have left this job otherwise.
Associate (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 24, 2017
It is supposed to be a Christian organization, but often does not display these characteristics because, well...people work there. It can be a wonderful place to work if you are under good supervision.
Great mission and excellent service to the communities they serve.

A fun and meaningful place to volunteer at. Employees are all great and the construction supervisors are all patient with you and teach you how to do everything they ask you to do. Good times volunteering with other people in the community.
