Habitat For Humanity in North St. Louis County, Minnesota Welcomes You!

An Update from Our Board President and Executive Director

Our homes have taken on new meaning.  Being able to “stay home” for most of us has meant an atmosphere of comfort, warmth and safety while surrounded by family.  We have 92 partner families in North St. Louis County who are safe at home, thanks to your support.  The first phone call that we received from our Habitat partner families was from Brittney Hunter who said, “I am so glad that we have this beautiful home to quarantine in!”  Photo:  Brittney, along with Ethan and their two girls.

Habitat for Humanity's Response to COVID-19

Dear Friends of Habitat,
 
As you are aware, a wave of closures, cancellations and postponements has unfurled as the COVID-19 pandemic has quickly evolved.  I know I speak for all of us at Habitat when I say our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted.  Beyond all else, our highest priority is the health and safety of our entire North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity community— staff, partner families, volunteers, supporters and all our neighbors across the Iron Range.
 
We want to update you on our plans for the next few weeks as we take the advice and direction from Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota and our local, state and Federal government.  We are all trying to do our part to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
 
Therefore, starting today, March 27th, North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity will be closed to the public through May 18th. 
 
During this time our staff will be working remotely or in isolation, keeping our construction sites safe and heated, answering phone calls and emails and planning for a very active time as our community comes back together to build strength, stability and self-reliance with our neighbors in need of shelter.
 
We are working together with you through these difficult and unprecedented times and will need your continued support as we move forward.
 
A sense of connectedness and a willingness to actively help shape the world around us for the better has always been a hallmark of Habitat. You have helped sustain our work with 100 families through 25 years of ministry, and we will weather this unprecedented challenge together.  
 
As much as we wish there might be a playbook for the situation we all find ourselves in, it has not been written yet. What has been written is the command to love our neighbors and to act with kindness wherever we can. We thank you for the close and loving community that you continue to help us build, and we appreciate your unwavering support.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Nathan Thompson
Executive Director
