Habitat is grateful to our veterans for their service, and we are committed to helping support them in their housing need. This year we are kicking off our first annual Veteran Home Build sponsored by Mountain Country. With your donation you can help Richard build a house with Habitat to ensure he and his two daughters have a safe and stable home. Scroll down to donate.
A Hand Up, Not a Hand-Out
- Habitat homes are sold to qualifying partner families without profit and financed with an affordable mortgage. The homeowners' monthly mortgage payments are used to build more Habitat homes.
- Homebuyers demonstrate a need and earn between 35-80% of the area median income for El Paso County.
- Habitat will conduct a credit check to look for outstanding debts, collection accounts, open judgments and recent bankruptcies.
- Homebuyers must attend Habitat homeowner classes and invest 350-450 hours of "sweat equity" into the construction or rehabilitation of their home.
- Sign up here to volunteer for the Veteran Build!
Thank you to Empire Staple Co! They donated nails, fasteners and screws that all went to the Veteran Build.
