More than an organization, Habitat Catawba Valley prides ourselves on being a community of supporters. Therefore, in the interest of keeping our community safe, we have decided to suspend all public operations until March 31st. This is not an easy decision, nor a light one, but we feel that it is a socially responsible one.
The team at Habitat Catawba Valley has been vigilantly monitoring the latest COVID-19 safety guidelines from local, state, and national health authorities. It is under these guidelines that we have decided to close our office building, ReStore, and worksites and to suspend volunteer activities until March 31st. However, we continue to closely follow this changing situation, and will continue to provide necessary updates should any arise.
We are still committed to the work ahead of us; we are monitoring the situation so that we may provide the least amount of disruption to our affordable housing services, while still prioritizing the health of the community first and foremost. To this end, staff will be working remotely to serve clients, maintain donor relations, and move projects along. We are in close communication with each of our partners, and are working together to develop the best plan forward for all of our upcoming projects in the interest of public health.
At Habitat Catawba Valley, we often thank you for working with us to build something better. However, that could not be more true than in moments like these. We appreciate your continued support, flexibility, and commitment to building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Our thoughts are with all our neighbors across the globe who have been impacted by the coronavirus. And we wish you and your family health, safety, and support during this challenging time.
As always, thank you for joining us in the belief that everyone needs a decent place to live, and in the work to make that belief a reality.
In peace and partnership,
