About Habitat Interfaith Alliance

Habitat Interfaith Alliance (HIA) is a coalition of dedicated souls who bring together people of different faiths to sponsor and help build a Habitat for Humanity home in the Denver Metro area each year. Currently representing 10 synagogues and churches—and welcoming to congregations of all faiths who wish to join the coalition—our alliance is a proud faith-partner affiliate with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. We have sponsored 20 new homes as a coalition since 2002. HIA works to address long-term poverty by providing families with safe, affordable housing. Evoking a spirit of interfaith community and benevolence, HIA's collaborations with Habitat families allow them to flourish, dream, and plan for a better future.

Our annual goal is to raise $40,000 toward the sponsorship of a Habitat home each year, to support construction costs. For 2021 we contributed $41,730.  To achieve this goal, HIA accepts donations and hosts several fundraisers throughout the year. Our annual fundraisers are the Soup Cook-off, the HIA Golf Classic, and Brews and Brains Trivia Night. In addition to these, we have tables at Habitat’s Breakfast for Humanity, participate in Colorado Gives Day, and often hold music concerts and “dining out for HIA” evenings, and more. We also galvanize our congregations, along with members of the general public, to volunteer at these fundraising events as well as work on the build project itself.    As these events approach on the calendar each year, information will be here on our website, as well as on our facebook page.

In 2021 Habitat Interfaith Alliance (HIA) became an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our officers, directors, fundraising chairs, and webmaster are all unpaid volunteers; not a penny of your donation goes to HIA salaries. We have minimal overhead, and we are very proud that net fundraising dollars are sent to Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver each year to sponsor a home in partnership.

Purchasing a home from Habitat for Humanity is a hand up for hard working future homeowners, not a hand out. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes and those of their neighbors alongside volunteers, and pay an affordable mortgage. With our help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
