TAHFH Awarded ReStore Trademark!
We are pleased to announce that the Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity has been awarded the ReStore Trademark from Habitat for Humanity International.  A ribbon cutting to celebrate the event took place on June 17, 2015.  The ReStore is located at 198 West First Street (corner of First and College streets) in Tahlequah.

House #22

The finishing touches on House #22 are nearly complete.  The house has been built for Bobby and Rebecka Sissom, and their daughter Rose (below), and is located at 6751 W. 774 Road, Hulbert, Oklahoma.  Finding directions: From Tahlequah, go west about 7 miles on Highway 51, turn left on E 750 Road (also E. 6th St., Hulbert), continue about 2 1/2 miles (road becomes 80 south, which becomes S. 410 Road), turn right onto W. Memory Lane, and then turn left on W. 774 Road and go 1.3 miles.

Paint and Repair Projects
Since 2009 Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity (TAHFH) has completed a total of 27 painting and repair projects called A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) and Critical Home Repair (CHR).  ABWK is an exterior painting project and CHR does repairs that affect the health and safety of the homeowner.  The Valspar Paint Corporation has donated the paint we use for both new construction and ABWK.  Other repairs to the outside of houses have been done, such as patching or replacing roofs and repairing porches and windows.  This year we are continuing these efforts through donations of time and money.  For example, the Tahlequah Community Foundation funded a repair to the porch of an elderly lady, and employees of Fairfield Marriott in Muskogee helped paint the home of one of our homeowners.

Habitat ReStore

The TAHFH  ReStore is continually on the up-swing.  We met our budget for the past fiscal year with the help of all those individuals and businesses that generously donated items to the store.  A big THANK YOU to our volunteers who give of their time to help organize, clean, display items, and assist our customers on Saturdays.  We are reaching out to the community and all of Cherokee County to help us spread the word about donating furniture, doors, windows, hardware, tools, televisions, housewares, cell phones, etc.  We ask that all donated items be in good working order, and remember that your donations are tax-deductible.  The ReStore is located on the corner of First and College Avenue in the west end of the building, and the Store phone number is 918-822-7201.

ReStore Hours:
