to our habitat family,
Habitat is in the business of caring, and we stand shoulder to shoulder with the non-profits, businesses, and organizations dutifully serving the Greater Lafayette community in this time of crisis.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 has hit our partner families hard. We maintain our commitment to walking with our families, both past and present, during this time by providing resources when we can, directing them to appropriate resources when we can’t, and working with them to ensure their affordable home remains stable while so many other aspects of their lives are not. As such, we will not be foreclosing or evicting our families who are struggling.
While our offices are currently closed to the public, our dedicated staff who make the dream of affordable homeownership possible are working remotely and are available via email to serve you. We are fortunate to be able to take care of our staff and we are fortunate that we don’t need furloughs or lay-offs in order to continue our operations.
We're continuing to build homes, though we aren't currently accepting volunteers. Our staff is following best practices
The ReStore is accepting donations. You can drop off your donation at our retail location at 3815 Fortune Avenue Tuesday-Friday from 11-4 and on Saturday from 11-3. The ReStore is also selling items on the ReStore Facebook page. In order to keep our staff and customers safe, the ReStore is still currently closed for in-person shopping.
It's a tremendous blessing to be a part of the Greater Lafayette community, and in these times of crisis, we feel a duty to care for our community the best way we know how. That said, our community's need is great; much greater than we can meet alone. As such, we encourage you to think creatively and thoughtfully about ways you can help. Because we're all in this together, and your unique talents and resources are needed more than ever.
