Our Mission Statement
Building homes in partnership with local low-income families in need of a simple, decent place to call home.
Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley is a local affiliate of the global nonprofit housing dedicated to building homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
We build affordable homes.
The need for affordable housing in Colorado is high and even greater in our mountain resort areas. Studies have shown that median home prices are rising much faster in Colorado than wages, creating a shortfall of homeownership opportunities in the state, especially in our valleys, an d the mountain resort areas. Studies have also shown that affordable housing is vital to the economic health of a community. Everyone deserves a fair chance at housing. Additionally, workers essential to the health of a community – teachers, firefighters, law enforcement personnel, emergency workers, retail workers, etc. – perform better in their job when they are able to live in the communities in which they work, not to mention what the stability does to improve their children’s scholastic performance. By reducing commute times, communities contribute to economic vitality by reducing transportation infrastructure costs, pollution, and labor turnover rates.
