Important Message for Gwinnett Habitat Homeowners/Homebuyers

As a Gwinnett Habitat homeowner/homebuyer, your family’s health and welfare are our top priorities.  

We know you are worried about your livelihood, your families and their welfare.  We have great concern for the health and care of every single person mired in this event and maintain hope for the quickest recovery and return to normalcy that is possible.  Our Board and staff have been praying for you. 

Due to changing conditions as we try to manage the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), our offices will be closed.  Gwinnett Habitat will be closed effective immediately through April 30, 2020.   All staff members are working from home. You may call or email, and we will respond to you promptly.  The Restore is closed until further notice.  You can visit their website for updates: www.suburbanatlantarestores.org.  Be assured that we are working hard to ensure that our programming continues with as little disruption to you as possible.  

There is a lot of misinformation out there about the COVID-19 virus.  The Centers for Disease Control is a reliable source for information and is updated daily.  Visit https://www.cdc.gov/ 

We will continue to monitor CDC recommendations to help make sure you and your family stay healthy and that you meet the requirements to maintain your home.   

Again, our top priority is your family’s health and safety, as well as that of our staff, volunteers, and sponsors who make homeownership possible. We will keep you informed of any changes as they occur by email and on our website. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Please contact our Homeowner Services Manager, Rhonda Streat rstreat@habitatgwinnett.org, or at 770-931-8080, xt.1017 should you have questions or concerns.
