A message from Kelly Lamb, Executive Director [4/2/2020]

To our Habitat Friends, Families and Supporters:

On behalf of the Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity Affiliate and ReStore, I hope that you are all staying healthy and are able to find some source of inspiration and comfort during the difficult and ever-changing landscape of COVID-19.

At this time, the CVHFH affiliate office, ReStore and construction sites remain closed until we are able to open again without endangering our employees or the community. We continue to monitor local, state and Federal guidelines and recommendations. We keep the health and safety of our organization and the community at the forefront of  our decisions.

Our staff continues to work remotely to support those we serve.  Do not hesitate to send e-mails or leave phone messages and they will be answered as soon as we are able.

Please note that the ReStore is unable to take donations at this time and we ask people to refrain from dropping donations off at the ReStore loading dock.  To those of you who have had time on your hands for some spring cleaning, save your usable treasures for when the ReStore is able to re-open.  We will re-open!!!!

Wishing you blessings, peace and hope.

Kelly Lamb

Executive Director
