COVID-19 UPDATE 3/25/2020: Our work is about more than homes, it's about community. That is why - first and foremost - we must help prioritize the health and safety of this community. We have been closely monitoring development with Covid-19 and reviewing recommendations on the local, state and federal level. In response, Lexington Habitat for Humanity is taking the following steps:

As of 5:00 pm on Wednesday, March 18th, we have suspended our free pick-up service and deconstruction services until further notice.

As of 6:00pm on Saturday, March 21st, we will be closing both Lexington Habitat ReStore locations until further notice.

As of 10:00am on Wednesday, March 25th, we have suspended drop-off donations to our Habitat ReStores. Please do not leave items outside our doors. We are grateful for your generosity, however, lack of staff and weather will render your donations unusable if left out in the elements. Please help us by holding donations until we reopen.

While these decisions will impact our ministry, we are serious about our commitment to love our neighbors and enact practices that are in their best interest and safety. We are continuing to adapt to this evolving situation and will modify our response as appropriate. Thank you once again for your support of our mission through purchases and donations to Lexington Habitat ReStore.
