Thank you for your interest in completing your court-ordered community service hours with us.

San Diego Habitat for Humanity accepts, on a limited basis, volunteers who are required by a court to complete community service hours.

All court-ordered volunteers are required to complete their community service in one of our ReStore locations. Volunteers with construction background may be approved to work on one of our construction sites, which will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

To be eligible to complete your community service hours at San Diego Habitat for Humanity you must NOT have a past history of the following and your sentence must NOT involve:

  1. a conviction of an offense of a violent or menacing nature
  2. a conviction of an offense of a sexual nature
  3. a conviction of theft or burglary.

Please have the following documents ready to upload at the end of this application:

  • Court documents
  • Government-issued photo ID
  • Signed Court-Ordered Community Service Policy + Agreement (if under 18)
  • A member of our Volunteer Services team will reach out by email following the processing of your application. Please check your spam or junk folder.
  • Please note that hours volunteered prior to staff approval will not accrue toward court-ordered requirements.

  • Under 18? Please print and sign the Court-Ordered Community Service Policy + Agreement here and upload at the bottom of this form.

  • If you have community service hours to complete that are not court-ordered, create a VolunteerHub account to get started. We can provide a confirmation letter for you at the end of your service.
Once approved by a member of Habitat’s Volunteer Services team, and after your screening, you may begin volunteering. If you have questions, please contact
