Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live and our mission is “seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope”. At Habitat for Humanity of Frederick County, we partner with families who are seeking the strength, stability and self-reliance of affordable home ownership.
Habitat Frederick During
the COVID-19 Outbreak
Our hearts are heavy for the quickly evolving effects that COVID19 is having and will have on our Frederick County community. Our prayers are with everyone impacted. Like everyone, we have implemented changes for the safety of our families and communities, including closing our ReStore, halting work on our home repairs and on our Middletown build, and unfortunately, placing the majority of our staff on furlough until we can resume our work. These steps are not taken lightly, but we recognize our responsibility to ensure the health and well-being of our neighbors, and the sustainability of Habitat Frederick to serve our local population in the future.
This time of crisis serves as a reminder of why our work is so desperately needed, because everyone should have a decent place to live, especially, when required to stay at home. Even in the midst of our difficulties, I find it crucial to return to the Christian roots that founded Habitat and our mission that states “putting God’s love into action, we build homes, communities and hope.” It is our great desire to build again, to build the hope of a safe and healthy home to everyone.
Our generous supporters have sustained the work of Habitat for Humanity for 27 years. It is your generosity and the support of this incredible community that has allowed us to weather the most difficult storms of our past, and we are confident that it will allow us to weather this unprecedented challenge. In partnership with you, Habitat for Humanity of Frederick County plans to be ready to accelerate our efforts with renewed energy and commitment when the time is right.
