Sussex County Habitat for Humanity getting back to normal operations

SUSSEX COUNTY- Habitat for Humanity is getting back to some normalcy one day at a time.

During the pandemic, they needed to adjust how they were going to build houses and what services they would offer.

They said the past year really shined a light on other services they can provide like helping with energy efficient programs and keeping people in their homes.

But, as restrictions have lifted and vaccinations are being given out, the organization is staying optimistic as things are looking up.

“We’ve seen in the recent months with volunteers are starting to come back out in larger numbers, we can accommodate small groups, which we weren’t able to do during the pandemic and we’ve also added all these other services around repairs and energy efficiency,” Kevin Gilmore, Executive Director of Sussex County Habitat for Humanity, said.

They also said there is an increase in the need for affordable housing, so the need for volunteers is even greater.

More volunteers now means getting the work done even faster.
