Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver
has been a Habitat for Humanity affiliate for just over 30
years. They are consistently recognized as a top producer
and leader in green energy homes. They completed their
500th home in the Denver Metro area in November 2012.
They have built over 600 homes internationally; being the fifth
affiliate to tithe $1 million to Habitat in other countries.
They continue to set challenging schedules and milestones for
themselves every year. Through their three home
ReStore (staffed by volunteers), they not
only provide recycling of materials and resell cheaper home
improvement goods, they also cover their organizational overhead
costs. This enables them to put more of their funds into
land purchases and home construction.
Every 10 minutes another Habitat home is completed somewhere in the world. Can you imagine how many people are involved in this effort? Volunteers account for the majority of labor needed to build these homes, which help keep mortgages for the new homeowners affordable.
