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.
Although we've had to make some delays in our application process, we'll begin accepting applications for homeownership again on February 1st, 2021.
Although most of our staff is working remotely, our offices will be open for limited hours. We'll be open on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10am-3pm. All staff remain available via email and phone.
We're continuing to build homes and our staff is following best practices. We're accepting a limited number of volunteers and have plans in place to keep everybody safe.
The Restore is currently open to in-person shopping as well as donations. You can drop off donations at our retail location at 3815 Fortune Avenue Tuesday-Friday from 10am-5pm and Saturday from 10am-4pm.
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.
