While we continue to make modifications to ensure your safety at our Gate City Boulevard ReStore location, we are excited to announce that we are re-opening our Lawndale Drive ReStore location.

To provide our staff with the time needed for cleaning to ensure your safety, our staff hours will be from 11 am to 5 pm Tuesday – Saturday. Additionally, we will be happy to accept donation drop-offs beginning Monday, May 12.

For the time being, we will not be scheduling donation pick-ups. We look forward to resuming pick-ups soon.

Our team has been closely monitoring the escalations surrounding Coronavirus / COVID-19, and are taking every precaution to protect you, our team, Habitat Greensboro homeowners, future homeowners, and the community for whom we deeply care.

This is an increasingly difficult time for people, businesses, and organizations 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 prayerfully—but we need your help. Here are the protective measures we have enacted:

Administrative Offices

  • Here’s what we’re doing.
    • Our administrative office is currently closed to the public effective.
    • Our staff are working remotely, replying to phone calls, voicemails, and emails during this time. Any meetings will be held remotely.
  • Here’s how you can help us.
    • We urgently need your financial support. As businesses throughout our community are impacted by closures, so are many Habitat Greensboro homeowners who make their family’s living in the service industry. These families will certainly be concerned about continuing to make their mortgage payments. We are committed to working with each family during this uncertain time, but we need your financial support to sustain us in that. Please consider any financial support possible and click here to give a gift online or see other ways to give. When you give, you’ll help us do more to help them.

Join Together in Prayer

  • This pandemic vigorously impacts the most economically and physically vulnerable members of our community, so please join us in praying for those who are ill and those who struggle financially. Pray for our government leaders and medical professionals. Pray for protection over our entire community.

Speaking for myself and Habitat Greensboro, I thank you for your patience, understanding, and prayers during this challenging time. I am confident that, with your help, Habitat Greensboro will emerge stronger than ever.
