Habitat for Humanity of Teller County

What

Habitat for Humanity is an attainable housing program that partners with people in our community to help build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners work alongside volunteer builders, complete financial education classes and pay an affordable mortgage. Through home ownership, Habitat families are empowered to build new strength, stability and self-reliance.

Why

We believe in a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We believe affordable housing makes a difference. With a little help, Habitat homeowners are able to achieve the strength and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves and their families. They are empowered to overcome the barriers that so often stand between their families and better, healthier and more financially stable lives.

Needs

Construction materials, land and a building for Habitat Market, resale items for Habitat Market, volunteers to repurpose furniture for Habitat Market, construction volunteers.

“I worked my whole life to have a safe house for me and my kids. I was so used to being told no. Habitat said yes. Now I have the opportunity to pass this home on to my children as an inheritance.” — Denise Marie Anne
