Habitat for Humanity made the decision to halt all current home building projects and the use of volunteers and will move forward with the use of contractors. 

Habitat for Humanity has prioritized the health and safety of its volunteers and staff, as well as the people it served throughout the pandemic:

-Habitat has suspended the vast majority of its construction activities throughout the United States and around the world.

-The more than 900 home improvement Habitat ReStores in the U.S. and Canada are closed to the public. These stores provide revenue to support Habitat organizations’ work in local communities.

-Habitat has suspended its Global Village volunteer builds through the end of 2020. Volunteer fees from these builds provide significant funding for Habitat’s work in many of the more than 70 countries where Habitat operates. The organization has also indefinitely suspended all other volunteer builds involving either domestic or international travel, including its Collegiate Challenge and RV Care-a-Vanners programs.
