Welcome to  Southeast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity

 

Executive Director Update on COVID-19

March 27, 2020

To All of Our Valued Customers, Donors, Volunteers & Supporters –

In accordance with Governor Sununu’s recent order, and in an effort to protect the health of our staff, donors, volunteers, and the community at large, the ReStore will remain closed through Monday, May 4, 2020. We are closely monitoring the recommendations of local public health agencies and will reopen our ReStore when it is safe to do so. We will continue to update you as we know more.

The ReStore will not be scheduling any pick-ups during this time. All scheduled donation pickups have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled until we are able to reopen. Our Donation Center will also remain closed. While we realize this is an inconvenience to all of our valued donors, we feel this is a prudent measure to take at this point.

During this difficult time, SENH Habitat for Humanity needs your support more than ever. Your financial donations help us to provide security for the families in the Seacoast area that need it most. We are committed to working with each family during this uncertain time, but we need your financial support to sustain us in our important work. If you would like to make a monetary donation to ensure that we can continue to help local families who need a safe place to live, please CLICK HERE

Please stay healthy & well during these uncertain times.

In Partnership,

Marcie Bergan

Executive Director, SENH Habitat for Humanity

Executive Director Update on COVID-19

Dear SENH Habitat for Humanity & ReStore Supporters,

I am writing to provide an update about the measures SENH Habitat for Humanity & the ReStore are taking to protect our staff, volunteers, donors and the people we serve during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

These measures are based on guidance from Habitat for Humanity International and local, state and national public health authorities. We are continually monitoring the situation, and our approach may change as new guidance is provided.

Given the current circumstances in our area, our builds will be temporarily cancelled. In addition, our ReStore will be temporarily closed until Tuesday, March 31, 2020. We will send out additional updates as conditions change.

In the meantime, please see the attached health guidelines document that offers advice from the World Health Organization on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We recognize these measures may be disruptive to your plans, but given our local conditions, this cancellation/temporary closure is prudent.

Please know that we are constantly monitoring the situation and will update our website and social media accounts as new details emerge. Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this public health crisis together.

In partnership,

Marcie Bergan

Executive Director, SENH Habitat for Humanity

SENH Habitat Holds “Key Ceremony” Celebrating the Beauregard Family! 

Sincere thanks to our donors, volunteers and community for your dedication and support

SENH Habitat is excited to have partnered with the Veterans Affairs (VA) for this construction project as Michael “Mike” Beauregard, a Veteran of the United States (US) Army, is now happily residing in his newly improved home.

On Saturday, March 7th at 10:00 AM, we officially handed another Veteran family the keys to their Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complaint addition on Powers Street in Raymond, NH. The Beauregard’s were handed their new keys while surrounded by Habitat’s Board of Directors, Staff, and many of the volunteers and local businesses who helped build the house.

SENH Habitat broke ground on the “Beauregard Project” in August of 2019. The organization was blessed with help from a village of volunteers, community members and local businesses who generously donated their time, in-kind services and construction materials to complete the 725 square foot addition in Raymond.

This is what Habitat for Humanity is all about and it is you, our donors and our volunteers, that make this possible. We are grateful for all of the support from our community.
