Dear Friend of Habitat for Humanity:
The past eighteen months has been a time of both trial and tribulation for our world, our nation, our community and our organization. COVID-19 has changed our lives and our lifestyles in myriad ways. Throughout this pandemic, Habitat for Humanity of Hood County (HFHHC) has always sought to act so as to protect the lives and the well-being of those whom we serve and of those with whom we work. We have implemented policies and procedures that are consistent with the guidance we have received from Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), governmental bodies, and the scientific and medical communities in trying to navigate the treacherous waters of this pestilence, and we will continue to rely on the expertise of these entities as we move forward. And while the disease stubbornly persists, the Board of Directors of HFHHC has decided to take the first steps toward resuming the construction of homes for our client partners.
In September, HFHHC will resume home construction work under the following restrictions and conditions:
1. Only experienced volunteers will be allowed on the work site.
2. Work will be restricted to only exterior construction elements initially.
3. Volunteers will be required to undergo temperature checks prior to beginning work.
4. Volunteers will be required to wear masks while on all HFHHC property.
5. Volunteers will be required to have undergone vaccination against COVID-19.
6. Work will be restricted to four (4) hours on each regularly scheduled work day.
7. No lunch will be served on each regularly scheduled work day.
In the coming days, more information and instruction regarding this startup will be forthcoming. These restrictions and conditions will be subject to regular review, and may be modified as dictated by the latest guidance from HFHI, the CDC, governmental bodies, and the scientific and medical communities. Our sole motivating purpose in taking these steps is to protect the health of our volunteers (many of whom are in an enhanced risk category), as well as the larger community that we serve
I understand that these restrictions and conditions may preclude some of our friends and supporters from resuming work with us immediately. If that is the case, I fervently hope that you’ll not take offense, because I can assure you that none whatsoever is intended. We all pray that the pandemic’s grip on our lives will gradually loosen, and we’ll eventually be able to return to some semblance of “normal life” (Whatever that turns out to be!). When that day comes, we look forward to welcoming back all of you who have supported us over the years, in whatever capacity you feel comfortable, as we continue to build homes, hope, and community…together! In the meantime, please keep yourselves and those around you safe and well.
With warmest regards,
David Clinkscale, President
