Habitat's Response to COVID-19
March 16, 2020
The circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak have evolved quickly, and we believe now is the time for us to do even more to protect you, our team, Habitat partner families, and the community we care deeply for.
In an effort to help our community remain safe and healthy, we’ve closed our main office, construction sites and ReStores to the public for the time being. We’re closely following the guidance and recommendations from elected officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and hope to re-open as soon as it’s safe to do so.
This is an increasingly difficult time for people, businesses, and organizations all across the country and our community. As a nonprofit that relies entirely on the support of others, please know we are making these difficult decisions after thoughtful discussions —but we need your help.
Here are some additional protective measures we at Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver are enacting today:
- We canceled our next two in-person Home Buyer Information sessions. We hope to reschedule them as soon as it makes sense to do so. Interested homebuyer applicants can still submit an online application through the end of the month.
- We have postponed our Breakfast for Humanity to Wednesday, June 24th. Learn more.

We recognize that these are uncharted waters and uncertain times, and appreciate your continued support, patience and trust as we navigate this together. Habitat for Humanity has always been a community-based organization, and we will continue to need to lean on one another to ensure we can support the hardworking families across metro Denver who need it most.
Our partner families are already vulnerable; many of them in positions at the forefront of the crisis, including health care workers, civil servants, service sector employees; those to whom a missed paycheck can mean catastrophe. If you were planning on volunteering, shopping at a ReStore, or supporting Habitat in the next few weeks, I strongly encourage you to support our mission through an online donation today.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and we will re-open our office, our sites and our ReStore as soon as it is safe to do so.
Thank you for your support!
