PLEASE NOTE: Habitat Charlotte has a new volunteer portal and registration system! An active volunteer account is required to register for construction shifts. To log into your existing account or to create a new account go to the VOLUNTEER LOG-IN WEBPAGE. If you are a new volunteer, click "New User" to create a new account. If you are an existing user/returning volunteer and have not reset your password since early June 2016, you will first have to reset your password by clicking the "Forgot Your Password?" option. You will receive an email prompting you to reset your password (check your Junk or Spam folders if you do not see it in your Inbox!). Once you have an active account, click the orange button below!
