To our Habitat supporters,

This is an update about the measures Hanover Habitat for Humanity is taking to protect our staff, volunteers and the people we serve during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. We continue to follow guidelines issued by our local, state and federal authorities as well as directives from Habitat for Humanity International.

ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE:  Hanover Habitat for Humanity administrative offices remain closed to the public except through appointment.  Staff is working remotely and can be reached by email.

Linda Tiller – Executive Director
Laurie Ursiny – Director of Development
Amanda Gunter – Director of Community Engagement
Kimberly Breeden – Director of Family Services
Maria Booker – Controller
Jennifer McDuffee – Finance & Administrative Assistant
George Robinson – Construction Supervisor

VOLUNTEERS:

  • Volunteers in the ReStore - Starting June 8, we can accept 1 volunteer per shift in the store. Volunteers must wear a mask at all times and gloves when dealing with any donations. If you are interested, please contact Amanda Gunter at agunter@hanoverhfh.org or call/text 8043040516.
  • Volunteers on Construction - This summer, we will start taking volunteers out on construction. Once we get permits on house 4, 5 & 6 and have a general timeline, we will start scheduling individuals and small groups. We can really use volunteers to help get the foundations, walls, trusses and roofs up once we get the green light from Hanover County. If you are interested in being notified when we are ready for volunteers, please email Amanda Gunter at agunter@hanoverhfh.org or call/text 8043040516 your name and contact information.
    • We are looking for a handful of people who can PAINT Rebekah's house (house 3) on Thursday, June 11, Friday, June 12, and/or Saturday June 13. Face masks and social distancing must be maintained inside the home. If you are willing to come out and help us accomplish this goal, please contact Amanda Gunter to register before hand.
  • Volunteers in Recycling - Our recycling crew is working every Tuesday. Individuals volunteering must wear a face mask and bring their own tools. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Amanda Gunter at agunter@hanoverhfh.org or call/text 8043040516.

HABITAT RESTORE:

The ReStore has reopened and is now taking donations. Please remember that all customers are required to wear a mask while inside the store. We are following guidelines mandated by the Governor and it is to protect the health of both our customers and our staff. Thank you to all who have come to shop, and donated so far!

PROGRAM APPLICATIONS:  Our homeowner application process remains closed. However, we anticipate reopening applications in the near future. If you would like to be put on the contact list to be notified when it reopens, please email Kimberly Breeden at kbreeden@hanoverhfh.org with your contact information.  We are not currently taking any applications for our repair program.

 

The ReStore was closed for several weeks which resulted in the loss of significant income. Construction of six homes stopped, causing costly delays. Your support is appreciated more than ever. If you are able to make a donation in support of our mission and our families, please go to www.hanoverhfh.org/champion and contribute whatever you feel led, and help us get through this time. Thank you for your partnership as we navigate this public health crisis together.
