At Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco County, the safety and well being of our staff, homeowners, and supporters are a top priority. We are closely monitoring all of the breaking developments and following guidance from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We will continue to provide updates on the measures our affiliate is taking.
We understand the situation is evolving daily, so for additional guidance on COVID-19, please visit the Centers for Disease Control’s website for their latest reports. Please continue to stay engaged with us on social media and on our website as we will provide updates on dedications, volunteer opportunities and events.
Office and Construction Sites
Our office and construction sites remain closed to the public. We do not anticipate reopening to walk ins or volunteers before July 1st. We continue to move our mission forward. Habitat staff are available by email and phone.
We reopened our Zephyrhills ReStore on Monday, May 4th. We will are limiting shoppers inside the store, following CDC guidelines on social distancing and cleaning. For those who prefer alternatives - we continue to offer online shopping, contactless payment, and curbside pickup. We are scheduling donation pickups. We will only pick up items from a garage or driveway and from a safe social distance. Our donation drive thru is also open, please stay in your vehicle, open your truck, and our team will unload for you. Please call the store for additional information on any of these services. Thank you for supporting your local Habitat ReStore.
Homeownership program & home dedications
At this time, our homeownership program continues to partner with local families and individuals to help make their homeownership dreams a reality. We are accepting applications, scheduling closings, and screening new applicants.
To our Homeowners and Homeowner Candidates: Habitat Homeowners and Homeowner Candidates with questions regarding mortgages or the homeownership program can call us at (352) 567-1444. Please leave a detailed message and we will return your call as soon as possible.
All volunteer groups have been cancelled/rescheduled through July 1st. At that time, we will re-evaluate the situation and determine if the time is appropriate to reopen the sites and events.
If you have made a group reservation to volunteer in this time frame, we would like to discuss re-booking your group for a future build day. If you are volunteering as a single volunteer or with a smaller group, we are happy to do the same.
Many of our hardworking homeowner candidates perform jobs right at the forefront of this crisis, including health care workers, teachers, service sector employees—those to whom if they missed a paycheck could mean catastrophe. If you made plans to volunteer or support Habitat for Humanity in the next few weeks or months, please consider supporting our mission through an online donation today!
For any volunteer related questions, please contact Jere Ferguson, Director of Homeowner and Volunteer Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org
