For the purpose of this agreement, Habitat refers to both Comal County Habitat for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity International. Volunteer refers to the individual volunteering with Habitat; if the Volunteer is less than the age of 18, it also refers to the Volunteer’s parent or guardian. The Volunteer named above desires to work as a volunteer for Habitat, a nonprofit corporation, and engage in the activities related to being a volunteer. These may include constructing, rehabilitating, or deconstructing buildings, working in the Habitat offices or ReStore, the construction warehouse, or living in housing provided for volunteers of Habitat.
The Volunteer freely, voluntarily, and without duress executes this Release under the following terms:
RELEASE AND WAIVER: The Volunteer releases and forever discharges and holds harmless Habitat and its successors and assigns from any and all liability or claims that the Volunteer (or the Volunteer’s heirs or assigns) may have against Habitat with respect to any bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from Volunteer’s activities with Habitat. THE VOLUNTEER UNDERSTANDS AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE CLAIMS BEING RELEASED HEREIN INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CLAIMS, IF ANY, BASED ON OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE NEGLIGENCE OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OF HABITAT OR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS.

Furthermore, volunteer expressly agrees that if any one or more of the provisions contained in this Release and Waiver of Liability are held to be invalid, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining provisions of this Waiver and Release of Liability, which shall otherwise continue to be enforceable.
