Building community through a pandemic

Door County Habitat for Humanity has been able to navigate their efforts through the pandemic in order to finish its 43rd home. Volunteers were not able to begin work on the home until early July due to COVID-19 concerns and then ran into roadblocks because of contractors catching up on their own backlog of work. Despite these challenges, Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Lori Allen says the Marvin family will be able to move into their new Baileys Harbor home before Christmas. Allen says it would not have been possible without their strong core of volunteers and some other breaks along the way.

Allen says Habitat volunteers are wrapping up some of their final outdoor home repair projects before the weather turns for the worse. The pandemic has put a temporary halt on their indoor home repair projects. Final details about the 43rd home dedication will be released in the near future.
