Covid announcement - update (2)

Midland County Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. We believe the best way to safeguard our mission is to follow the Stay Home, Stay Safe executive order Governor Whitmer instituted on March 23rd.  We

Our office and ReStore will be closed until the Stay Home Stay Safe order has been lifted from the Governor, Gretchen Whitmer. This is due to concerns around the Coronavirus. 

(The following are considered essential staff necessary to keep the operation and building functioning as minimally as possible: President/CEO, Finance Manager/Bookkeeper, ReStore Manager that oversees facilities)

Per Governor Whitmer’s order “to suppress the spread of COVID-19, to prevent the state’s health care system from being overwhelmed, to allow time for the production of critical test kits, ventilators, and personal protective equipment, and to avoid needless deaths, it is reasonable and necessary to direct residents to remain at home or in their place of residence to the maximum extent feasible. This order takes effect on March 24, 2020 at 12:01 am, and continues through April 13, 2020 at 11:59 pm. Stay Home, Stay Safe”

 

We feel there is nothing more important than a good, safe, healthy, secure home and implore you to also follow the directive and to stay safe.

 

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

Midland County Habitat for Humanity (MCHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Midland County Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.  Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

All are welcome

MCHFH has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

Wood Shop Club Meeting

The 4th Wednesday of the month, MCHFH ReStore will host the Wood Shop Club. The club will meet to teach volunteers how to use tools in our wood shop located in our Donation Processing Center.
 
Each month the Wood Shop Club will meet and work with different tools to create items to sell in the ReStore. Most items will be repurposed items donated to the ReStore.
 
This is a great way to learn how to use power tools and the basics of wood working. If you would like to volunteer on a new construction site and would like more experience with the power tools we strongly suggest volunteering in the wood shop to get acquainted with the tools.
 
No experience necessary to volunteer. Just RSVP online for the club meeting you would like to attend:

Midland County Housing Analysis 2018

Most communities in America seek to be both economically sustainable and socially equitable. The twin goals, in their
combination, may be aspirational but they are worth striving for. To meet such lofty goals, a community must have a housing market that functions toward those ends.

Midland County’s housing market offers a kind of contradiction; it is both full of choice and generally affordable, but, at the same time, it is not supporting the community’s future economic vitality nor is it serving
the needs of the county’s poorest residents.

How can the Midland area community respond to the challenges and opportunities it is facing when it comes to housing? This report represents the beginning of an effort to answer that
question. czb was retained by Midland County Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with the City of Midland, the United Way of Midland County, and Midland Area Homes, to complete an analysis of the county’s housing market and to assess its affordable housing need.
