Our #BeamOfHope Crisis Fund will create hope for local families so badly impacted by the Coronavirus crisis. Your donation will allow us to continue our mission to build homes, communities—and hope—for all those who desperately need a safe and affordable home!
Some of our recent Habitat families are pictured at the bottom of this page.
Although our wonderful staff is working as diligently as they can, we face severe challenges resulting from the Coronavirus crisis. Our construction sites are closed, and our fundraising events have been cancelled. Our Worcester ReStore reopened on May 26th, but the Ashland ReStore remains closed. These reliable sources of revenue have been greatly diminished, and we desperately need your support to help local families with affordable housing through the Coronavirus and beyond. YOUR gift will support our mission to build homes, communities and hope for local families.
What is the direct impact of the Coronavirus crisis on our mission to build homes, communities and hope?
Our Holliston and Worcester affordable home builds have both been delayed, meaning local families so desperate to live in safe conditions will wait an extended period of time for their home. As so many of our fundraising initiatives were cancelled, even when it is safe to resume building, how will we afford the lumber, flooring, roofing, and other materials that we need to build a home? With our sources of revenue all terribly impacted, how will we continue to pay our staff and overhead? How will our ReStores be able to get up and running to ensure that shoppers’ purchases continue to benefit Habitat’s mission?
We are truly grateful for our many supporters, our funders, the organizations we work with, and our volunteers, BUT we still desperately need your help.
Please read this quote from one of our current homeowners, Sophie: "Habitat For Humanity changed our quality of life. Every single donation, every single person who made our dream a reality is an angel. My husband served Honorably in the Marine Corps, and what we have gotten in return for his service has been life changing. We are forever grateful. Strangers became saviors. There are no words to express our Thanks. Hopefully the smile on our boys' faces tells you, even if they don't have the words. All of our Best to all of you Angels. Be well, friend."
PLEASE consider making a generous gift today – towards our #BeamOfHope Crisis Fund – created specially to help during this terrible health crisis. We are a small non-profit, and each staff member and volunteer cares deeply about the families like Sophie's who live in our communities and who need affordable and safe housing. PLEASE help us so that we may continue to serve those who need us the most!
