About Habitat for Humanity Metro Denver

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. Since 1979 they have served over 1,000 families. In the Denver Metro Area, they have built 667 homes, completed 123 renovations, and done critical repairs to 240 homes as of August 2019. Additionally since 1979 they have built 973 international tithe-sponsored homes. They continue to set challenging schedules and milestones for themselves every year. Through their five home improvement outlets, 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.

In approximately 70 countries and nearly 1,400 U.S. communities, the families who build with Habitat know the life-changing security of having a decent place to live. Since 1976, support from volunteers and donors has helped more than 13.2 million people create better lives in better housing.

About Habitat Interfaith Alliance

Habitat Interfaith Alliance (HIA) is a coalition of dedicated souls who bring together people of Christian, Jewish, and Unitarian Universalist faiths to sponsor and help build a Habitat for Humanity home in the Denver Metro area each year. Representing 12 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 18 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 $80,000 for the sponsorship of a Habitat home each year. This eighty thousand dollars is the actual cost of the building materials for the home in Denver; however, each home costs about $170,000 to build in total (land, permits, inspections, supervisor’s salaries). 

 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 for Habitat 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.
