The George Hammond Award

The George Hammond Award honors individuals who, through their tireless service to PPHFH, have exhibited qualities of leadership, an unwavering belief in Habitat’s ministry, as well as demonstrated a deep devotion and passion to serve the community and people of El Paso County, Colorado.

For 25 years George Hammond has been the committed builder of homes, communities, and hope in El Paso County. This award will henceforth recognize and be bestowed upon those volunteers that, in the PPHFH George Hammond Award Board of Director ad-hoc committee’s opinion, have significantly given of themselves and provided positive mentoring, guidance, support and collaboration to future homeowners, volunteers, and affiliate staff.

A recipient of the George Hammond Award is a volunteer who truly is noteworthy for their constant contributions to the mission of PPHFH - a constant supporter, a constant advocate and, most importantly, a constant leader.
