South Carolina Habitat for Humanity (SCAHA) is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the precautions governments, health officials, businesses, and other nonprofit organizations continue to take to limit its spread. SCAHA is here to support Habitat affiliates across the state with health and safety resources, as well as tools for addressing operational continuity. Additional guidance is available on My Habitat.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The community is in a continually evolving public health situation. We will do our best to keep this website updated, but also encourage you to contact Nancy Lee at email@example.com if you have any concerns or questions!
Local decisions regarding volunteering, offices, ReStores, and events are made at the community level, based on this specific situation in that area. Click here to find your community’s Habitat and stay up-to-date on the local response.
Habitat is committed to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, partners, and the communities we serve. Across the board, Habitat is continually following the recommended precautions advised by CDC and DHEC.
Each Habitat affiliate’s leadership should review their policies regarding PTO, sick leave, remote work, etc. If anyone is unwell, they should stay home.
All Global Village volunteer builds through May 2, 2020 have been suspended to minimize the risk of transmission among volunteers and the communities it serves. In addition, the International team and US Office have suspended all HFHI staff travel (domestic and international) at this time. Each affiliate is encouraged to consider what local travel measures are appropriate within their individual communities.
While in most cases Habitat offices, construction sites, and ReStores across South Carolina currently remain open with increased safety precautions, we are committed to adjusting operations as needed. A crowdsourced list of public COVID-19 company policies, updates, conference closures, and resources provides samples for review.
