COVID-19 Response
As of March 31, 2020 

Dear Friends,

Our team has been closely monitoring the escalations surrounding Coronavirus / COVID-19 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 all care deeply about. Starting today, we are increasing our efforts to help flatten the curve of this harmful virus in the weeks ahead.


What are we doing?
Our office is now closed to the public. All staff is available and working remotely during this time. Any scheduled meetings are being evaluated and will be held as planned or held remotely.

How can you help?
Our #1 priority right now is to support the families that we serve. As businesses in our community are impacted by closures, so are many Habitat homeowners who make their family’s living in the service industry. These families are concerned about continuing to make their mortgage payments. We are committed to working with each family during this uncertain time. Please consider making an online donation to help us support our homeowners.


What are we doing?
Habitat ReStore is temporarily closed to the public. We have paused all donation pick-ups.

How can you help?
ReStore is a key part of how we build homes with local families and this downtime will certainly be a hit to that effort. We will urgently need your donated items when we return. You can continue to request free donation pickups on our website or by calling 970.328.1119, but please remember that we aren’t able to resume pickups until the store is able to reopen. Learn more about donating items and scheduling free donation pickup.


What are we doing?
Our jobsite is closed to the public and not accepting volunteers, at this time. Construction activities are currently excluded from Colorado’s stay-at-home order, so we do have a small group onsite working to complete the six homes that we started in 2019.

How can you help?
Take steps to stay healthy—we have a busy build season ahead of us and we’ll need your help to build homes!

Habitat Partner Families and Homeowners
Please stay in touch with our family services staff if you have questions or concerns during this time. Call: 970.748.6718 ext. 125.

Above all, let’s be there to support one another during this difficult time. If you have any questions, please get in touch. Simply reply to this email or give us a call at 970.748.6718.
