The covid19 pandemic is having an unprecedented affect on our capacity to raise funds and build homes for local families.
Today, more than ever, we need your help to provide families with safe and affordable homes.
Please make a gift if you can to the Emergency Covid19 Response Fund to ensure that Habitat for Humanity of NW Indiana can continue to serve Lake County Indiana now and for as long as people will need affordable, decent homes.
Construction has all but completely stalled. As Habitat is considered essential as a non-profit/construction organization, only our construction manager and a small handful of core volunteers continue to work on homes currently in progress.
Our two ReStores, a primary source of revenue supporting our builds, are closed. Though online shopping is available, our daily foot traffic and sales have been significantly reduced.
Many of our homeowners have been hit hard by Covid19. We expect many will struggle with their mortgage payments. While their payments are interest free, the income is crucial to supporting Habitat home builds.
This adds up to a devastating effect on our ability to provide homes for local families.
While we cannot build homes at our normal pace while COVID-19 prevents volunteers from coming to our construction sites – your gift can, however, help us to overcome the costs of delays so that we can continue building when this crisis is over.
