Updated Message Concerning COVID-19

Holston Habitat’s number one priority is always to support the health and safety of our people. With that in mind, we are following the reopening guidelines set forth by TN Governor Bill Lee.

Construction
Holston Habitat’s Board & staff have made the difficult decision to postpone new construction projects for the moment. We remain fully committed to helping families achieve the dream of homeownership. Our families are ready, our staff is ready, and our volunteers are ready… but Holston Habitat welcomes your help to rise above the challenges from the pandemic. Since new tax law adjustments allow a $300 tax deductible donation, we hope you will direct your secure online gift to Holston Habitat here or by mail to PO Box 5265, Kingsport, TN 37663. Working together, we will make the dream of affordable homeownership a reality by resuming our mission of building homes, community and hope in the Tri-cities. Thank you for helping Holston Habitat weather this challenge and prepare to build again!

The Holston Habitat ReStores in Kingsport and Johnson City will reopen their doors on Tuesday, May 5.
