We wanted to provide you with an update that our offices will remain closed and all volunteer activities suspended through April 30th to protect the health of all of our staff, volunteers, and partners.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, sponsors, and other partners, we are so grateful that we have the funding and resources available to stay on track with our build schedule and continue our new home construction during this crisis.

Last week, our construction staff and subcontractors worked to complete all of the siding and insulation on the two new homes that we are building in Snellville. The drywall installation started today and will be completed over the next week. We are still tracking for both of these homes to be completed and dedicated to the families in June!

We will continue to provide you with updates regarding our construction progress via email and social media. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to when we can welcome you back to our build site!

Dear Gwinnett Habitat Family,

You are in our thoughts and prayers and we hope that you and your family are remaining healthy and safe during this time.

Our office will continue to be closed and all volunteer activities suspended through Easter weekend, April 12th. Please call our office at 770-931-8080 if you would like to leave a message for a staff member. All of our staff are working remotely and are available via email (contact info can be found here).

The Lawrenceville ReStore is still closed through April 8th, with no residential pick-ups scheduled until future notice. Visit http://www.suburbanatlantarestores.org/ for further updates.


Thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors, we are so grateful that we have the funding to stay on track with our build schedule and continue our new home construction during this crisis.

Over the last two weeks, we have certainly missed our volunteers helping us on the build site, but we have used subcontractors to keep us on schedule for the completion of our first 2 homes in Snellville by June.

On Houses #146 and #147, we have roughed in the plumbing, electrical work, HVAC, and dried in both houses. The roofing is scheduled to be completed over the next week. They’re really coming along!

We look forward to re-opening our office soon to welcome volunteers and sponsors to our build sites again!

We know that safe, decent, affordable housing is of utmost importance during a crisis like this and we thank you for your support of our mission and your faith in our work in the Gwinnett community.

We hope you will continue to stay safe and be well.

Gratefully,

Brent Bohanan
Executive Director, Gwinnett Habitat
