Volunteer Code of Conduct

We expect all our volunteers to adhere to our Volunteer Code of Conduct.

Volunteer Code of Conduct


Houston Habitat is currently not accepting Court Ordered Volunteers (COVs) at this time. We are revising our Court Ordered Volunteer policy, so we can accommodate these types of volunteers in the near future. All COVs must complete their hours with our South Loop ReStore only. If you are interested in being notified when we accept COVs again, then register for a Volunteer Hub account and add yourself to the ReStore user group here:

If you need a record of your hours for purposes other than court, then please submit your request at with your name and the date range you would like the record to show.
