Low- risk construction work resumes, few words from Attain Housing and new homes coming soon!

Posted April 24, 2020 | Merit Homes Inc Current News

Hello everyone! Hope you all are staying safe and healthy!

Governor Inslee has ordered all residential low risk construction in Washington State to resume as per April 24th. As a result, ALL Merit Homes construction sites will resume, adhering to the new COVID-19 Job Site Requirements. Our office staff, will continue to work from home until further notice. Our Merit Team is working on adjusting safety requirements, before crews arrive next week including COVID-19 exposure control, social distancing; hygiene and sanitation procedures. Hopefully, with construction back we can have our upcoming projects on the market within the next month.

Consider donating to Attain Housing. In this recent outbreak of Covid -19,  Merit Homes has donated $10 000 to their organization and now encouraging others to donate. Wouldn’t it be great to have many small donors to match up to ours?  Here are some words from Eric Sanford at Attain:

Attain Housing clients need your help. As with so many families right now, these client families living in our transitional housing apartments are reeling from job loss and lack of income because of the COVID-19 shutdown. These families are transitioning from homelessness; they have no savings, no safety net, and no network to call on for help. Imagine the stress these families experience not knowing where to turn. We can help them with many services, but we can’t help them pay their rent. That’s where you come in.

How You Can Help
Thanks to the leadership of local businesses and community groups like Merit Homes, Windermere Real Estate, Kirkland Kiwanis, and Overlake Park Presbyterian Church, we have been able to launch the “Help a Neighbor” fund for rental relief and supportive services. This will help to ease the burden on these families with so little during these uncertain times. Our transitional housing client households pay rent based on their monthly income. We work closely with our clients to address crises and troubleshoot solutions. Our goal is to minimize the stress on our clients during this COVID-19 shutdown. Evelyn, like many of our other clients, lost her job recently and told us she couldn’t make this month’s rent. Together, she and her case manager worked out what she could pay now, with the hope that she could pay the rest later, over an extended time. While this is a burden on the organization, our priority is our clients.
Please help alleviate the stress of our transitional housing families by “adopting” a neighboring property and allowing us to continue to provide them housing and other supportive services that are needed in times like these.
