We have all been spending the majority of our time at home, and we now have a deeper understanding of what "home" actually means - and how important it is today more than ever. Many families in King County, who despite their best efforts, do not have that experience. And now, job losses resulting from COVID-19 are further stressing Habitat partner families and those in the application pipeline. For those families who have yet to experience the sense of safety and security for which the rest of us are so grateful, or who now are struggling to pay their mortgages, there is an opportunity to help. Take part in the Habitat for Humanity Beyond the Build Virtual Luncheon, hosted by KIRO 7’s Steve Raible, or consider making a donation to the Habitat SKC Resiliency Fund.
