Forty Percent of Habitat Homeowners Have No Work or Less Work Due to COVID-19

A new study by Habitat Broward has found more than 40 percent of the homeowners it serves have been furloughed, laid off, or had their hours cut due to COVID-19.

Not surprisingly, 27 percent of the more than 350 working families polled reported financial strain, including an inability to pay bills for utilities and essentials like groceries.

Habitat for Humanity of Broward CEO and Executive Director, Nancy Robin said the results demonstrate that low-income working families are already struggling with the impact of a shuttered Broward.

“As the economic shocks from this crisis ripple out, these are the families that are being hardest hit; they always are,” said Robin. “As more businesses close and hourly workers lose jobs, we’re going to need to work just as hard to flatten the curve of economic insecurity as we are COVID-19.”

The Community Foundation of Broward and other partner organizations are helping Habitat Broward to provide immediate relief to families in danger of losing ground on the tremendous strides they have made towards economic independence.

Part of Habitat’s study has involved calls to hundreds of Broward residents, like homeowner, Rudy Simpson, who was laid off at a shipping company and his wife Tricia’s hours have been severely cut.

“We’re low on money and food but are filled with hope and pray this will get better soon,” said Tricia Simpson.

“Now, more than ever, low-income working families like the Simpsons need our support,” said Robin. “Bold, decisive action and partners like the Community Foundation will help us do just that.”

Habitat Broward continues to build homes during the crisis and will conduct its first ever virtual dedication ceremony on May 16th for four families moving to homes they have worked more than a year for.

As the state and South Florida cautiously begin the reopening process, Habitat predicts that income and financial health will lag behind for these families who are often one or two paychecks away from financial collapse. The support of partners like the Community Foundation of Broward, the City of Pompano Beach, faith–based organizations and campaigns like the new Giving Tuesday NOW on May 5th prompted by COVID-19, provide urgently needed resources to bridge this gap.

South Florida-based TooJay’s deli files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

The owner of the popular South Florida-based TooJay’s deli, bakery and restaurant chain has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors.

The decision by the company’s management and board of directors “is the direct result of the devastating economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our restaurants throughout Florida,” president and CEO Max Piet said in a statement.

The complete list of ‘essential businesses’ in each South Florida county

While Gov. Ron DeSantis finally issued a statewide stay-at-home order Wednesday, here in South Florida, he had already done so a few days before, shuttering all nonessential businesses.

That followed various county and city orders that did the same but with key differences — and that meant confusion over what is considered “essential.”

Check the link below – it is a long list!

A Letter from Whole Foods Market – Response to COVID-19

Dear Whole Foods Market Community,

First and foremost, I hope you are staying well. As a company, Whole Foods Market is adjusting to the current circumstances that all of us are facing during this unprecedented time. We believe that the service we provide as a grocer is an essential one, and we are committed to continuing to serve our customers in a safe and responsible manner, both in our stores and through delivery.

With information moving quickly, we think it’s important to keep you informed of the measures we’re taking to ensure the health of both our customers and our 95,000+ team members. As you’d expect, all decisions we’re making are being guided by the counsel of outside health and food safety experts, including the CDC and local health authorities.

Along with enhanced sanitation measures and social distancing practices in stores, here are the most recent operational changes we want you to be aware of:

  • We have adjusted hours, with stores closing up to two hours early to give our team members more time to restock shelves, sanitize our stores and rest in preparation for the next day.
  • We are inviting customers 60 and older into the store to shop one hour before it opens to the general public.
  • We have temporarily closed self-serve areas of the store, including our hot bars, salad bars and antipasti bars. Other seated venues in our stores will offer takeout only, and any indoor or outdoor café seating is closed.

If you’ve shopped our stores in recent weeks, you’ve experienced our team members’ dedication and diligence to serving your community during a time of uncertainty. None of this is lost on us, which is why in addition to the changes you’re seeing in our stores, we’re taking extra precautions to ensure our team member’s safety and well-being. That includes measures to compensate and further support them during this unprecedented time, including: •All part- and full-time hourly team members at Whole Foods Market stores and facilities will receive an additional $2 per hour as part of the announcement Amazon made this week.

  • Additionally, all part- and full-time hourly team members at Whole Foods Market stores and facilities will receive double their regular hourly base rate of pay for every overtime hour worked in a workweek from March 16 through May 3, 2020.
  • All Whole Foods Market team members who are placed in quarantine or have a confirmed case of COVID-19 have access to the two weeks’ paid time off related to coronavirus that was announced last week.
