COVID-19 Preparedness

The health and safety of our constituents and the community at large is of utmost importance to Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to update this page as needed.

UPDATE 3.27.20

  • In compliance with Buncombe County’s Stay Home, Stay Safe ordinance, Habitat staff that are able to work remotely are doing so. Staff members in positions that can not do their work remotely are now on paid Administrative Leave. A limited number of designated employees will be allowed to travel and access AAHH facilities to perform essential functions.

UPDATE 3.16.20, 3:50pm

  • Our ReStores and Jobsites are now closed to the public.
  • Our ReStores are currently NOT accepting donations. But we encourage you to start spring cleaning now and boxing up your items, so they’ll be ready for drop-off or pick-up when we resume donation service. Thank you for understanding!
  • All volunteers are cancelled until further notice.
  • Staff will continue to work – remotely, when possible.

3.13.20 – All Asheville Habitat public events and meetings have been postponed until further notice. This includes Homeownership Information sessions, fundraising events, committee meetings, group meetings in the Large Conference Room, etc.

Like many other organizations, thinking with a public health perspective is new for us. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and make decisions with guidance from local governmental agencies, public health authorities, and Habitat for Humanity International.

For information, prevention tips, and local updates, please reference Buncombe County’s emergency services. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
