August 2021

 

It’s been a hard year – we have so much to catch up on.

The Bay Area Buzz

This past year has been difficult on everyone. Now more than ever, Bay Area Habitat’s work is critical.
This year has “emphasized the critical role a home plays in people’s lives. Millions continue to grapple with housing instability due to the devastating economic impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.” -Jacqueline Innocent, Senior VP of Integrated Programs at Habitat for Humanity International
With that, we want to thank you for continuing to support us during these times, and we hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.

Bay Area Habitat ReStore Remains Closed

During the Summer of 2020, as a result of COVID-19 and an overall decrease in donations, volunteers, and shoppers, we had to make the difficult decision to close our ReStore on the corner of NASA Pkwy & Kobayashi Rd. This isn’t goodbye forever — just for now!

New Home Construction in Texas City

We’re so happy to be renewing construction on Ebony Brooks’ home in Texas City! Miss Brooks has 3 amazing children and is looking forward to a life with a stable home and of not paying rent. We hope to make her dream of owning a home a reality by the end of this year.

Volunteers Needed!

We own several lots that require mowing and it would be appreciated if a volunteer committed to doing that on a weekly/bi-weekly basis! Please email chuynh@bahfh.org for more information.
