Habitat’s Response to COVID-19: 3/16/20

The circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak have evolved quickly, and we believe now is the time for us to do even more to protect you, our team, Habitat partner families, and the community we care deeply for.

This is an increasingly difficult time for people, businesses, and organizations all across the country and our community. As a nonprofit that relies entirely on the support of others, please know we are making these difficult decisions after thoughtful discussions —but we need your help.

Here are the protective measures we at Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver are enacting today:

We recognize that these are uncharted waters and uncertain times, and appreciate your continued support, patience and trust as we navigate this together.  Habitat for Humanity has always been a community-based organization, and we will continue to need to lean on one another to ensure we can support the hardworking families across metro Denver who need it most.

Our partner families are already vulnerable; many of them in positions at the forefront of the crisis, including health care workers, civil servants, service sector employees; those to whom a missed paycheck can mean catastrophe. If you were planning on volunteering, shopping at a ReStore, or supporting Habitat in the next few weeks, I strongly encourage you to support our mission through an online donation today.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and we will re-open our office, our sites and our ReStore as soon as it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your support!

If you can say “yes” to these three questions, we’re asking you to postpone your visit to any of our locations for the time being.
