From the Field: Volunteer and Construction Updates

2021 has been quite a year! After a measured reopening in 2020, the construction program has faced a number of setbacks – from changing guidance around the pandemic to supply delays. In light of some recent good news, our team is ready to reconnect with our favorite people – volunteers! (Skip to Construction Progress)

Volunteer Opportunities

Phased Reopening

Beginning September 7th, we will welcome new, sporadic, and group volunteers to our construction site. Spots are limited, so be sure to register! Court-ordered volunteer opportunities are expected to resume in October with revised guidelines.

Group Scheduling

Groups of up to 10 people will be welcome on the construction site on Thursday and Friday mornings from 8 am to 12 pm and every other Saturday (starting 9/18) from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. Contact Sarah Jared at (904) 595-5793 or for more information.

COVID-19 Precautions

We will continue to update our COVID-19 policies as new information becomes available.

Construction Progress

Haywood Estates II

It’s our best progress report yet. Windows for 2617 and 2619 arrived at the site on Friday, August 27th! We will finish the siding on the exterior walls while electricians from Limbaugh Electric work on the inside.

We expect to receive the windows for 2618 and 2620 on September 10th. Until they are delivered to the site, most of the focus will be on getting 2617 and 2619 ready for drywall.

Senior Repairs

Our Senior Repair program is open and taking requests for service. Learn more about the services we offer for local homeowners over the age of 60.

To date, we have completed 5 home repairs through our new Senior Repair Program, with a few more that will soon be scheduled.

You Can Help Make More Progress in September!

Anyone, age 16 and over, can help to build on our construction site! No tools or experience are needed.
