Help us thank the Rochester Junior Builders Exchange for their generous donation and volunteer crew!
226 Saxton Street is being built through our partnership with The Builders Exchange of Rochester and Rochester Junior Builders Exchange. Learn more at https://robex.com/habitat-build/
Last Friday, the Rochester community showed that it continues to be ready to come together in support of building strength, stability, and self-reliance in Rochester.
Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, guests, bidders, and donors - we raised over $175,000 at the 2022 Hope Builds Gala!
Check out over 100 photos of the fun and impactful event below and be sure to look through all the generous sponsors that contributed to our mission!
Jonathan's Call From The Heart
THANK YOU AGAIN TO OUR GENEROUS GALA SPONSORS!!
Second floor joists have been installed at 383 Jay Street and a special "Happy Birthday!!" to Flo, one of our weekly Hammer & Saw volunteers on the Wednesday crew!
Next up is second story subfloors. Check out the buttons below for upcoming volunteer opportunities for both construction and ReStore.
Vaccination: While highly encouraged, we currently have no vaccination requirements.
Masking & COVID-19 Community Level: Based on CDC guidance, Flower City Habitat for Humanity strongly recommends indoor masking when the COVID-19 Community Level for Monroe County is "high" (details and link to CDC Community Levels below).
Additional information on mask types, use, care of masks, and free N95 respirators can be found here.
Health Screening: We no longer require a daily health screening questionnaire, but we continue to ask all staff, volunteers, and visitors to stay home if they are not feeling well. Even if you have tested negative for COVID-19, we don't want to spread other illnesses either.
COVID positive tests, exposures, and illness (among volunteers): Please click here for guidance.
We continue to monitor CDC, NYS, & Monroe County guidance, but please note that these protocols will remain our affiliate policy until updated by FCHH (last updated on 05/18/2022).
Thank you to Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, Rochester Mayor Malik Evans, NYS Assemblymember Demond Meeks, and all the other volunteers and supporters who joined us in-person and online to celebrate the completion of our 250th house!
This milestone build, located on Campbell Street, was made possible through a longstanding partnership with Excellus BlueCross BlueShield and their dedication to investing in housing and building a stronger, healthier community.
Congratulations Tiphfany for all the work you put in to get to this point and thank you for partnering with us to achieve your goal of homeownership!
