As we reflect on 2020 and continue to reel from the COVID-19 pandemic, Habitat Spartanburg continues to feel the love and support from our community.
Habitat Spartanburg was on a growth path when COVID forced our ReStore to close for a short time and volunteers to be restricted on our work sites and in the ReStore. Thanks to the support from community partners including the Spartanburg County Foundation, Mary Black Foundation, Wells Fargo and the Paycheck Protection Program through the federal government, Habitat Spartanburg was able to continue our work during 2020.
Staff anticipates to close five homes and ten Critical Home Repair projects by the end of the fiscal year (June 30, 2021). Although our work has been slowed, it has continued through our Homeownership Program where deserving, low-income families are realizing their dreams of owning their own homes and homeowners who can't afford basic safety exterior repairs are able to find help through the Critical Home Repair Program.
We struggle to find adequate words to appropriately express our appreciation and gratitude during a period of uncertainty.
