COVID-19 Update 4/1/2020

Apr 1, 2020 | COVID-19

Dear Neighbors,

These are uncharted times for our community and events are changing quickly. Just 10 days ago, Habitat suspended public operations through March 31st.

Now updated CDC and NCDHHS guidelines for North Carolina mean that Habitat will be on hold longer than originally planned. Despite this set back, I want you to know that Habitat Catawba Valley is still here with you, and we have a blueprint for how to continue serving Catawba County.

Habitat Catawba Valley is hard at work providing affordable housing to our neighbors. Now more than ever, it’s important to build strength and stability. These core values guide our mission, and our readiness to serve.

Even in rocky times, we are working to build solid foundations. Habitat is moving forward with new homes in Ridgeview, while also finalizing closing documents and loans for our newest homebuyers. We’re also tailoring our support to current Habitat families, who by no fault of their own have decreased income. Help comes in the way of identifying jobs, connecting homeowners with community resources, and modifying house payment plans where needed.

Habitat will share these resources with you as well. We know that so many of us are facing the same challenges. We are all in this together.

To you all, I want to say: we are here. We are in this together. And Habitat is working harder than ever to bring strength, stability, and security to Catawba County. If there is any way Habitat can help you, please reach out. In the meantime, my prayer for you and your family is to have good health and find comfort in the days and weeks ahead.

In peace and partnership,


Mitzi Gellman
