Anna's Family Story...

A single mother to four kids, Anna is originally from Texas but moved to Colorado Springs in 2015. Anna’s mother also moved to Colorado Springs to help Anna take care of her children, especially Anna’s 16-year-old daughter who has been battling brain cancer for six years. Anna and her children currently live in Anna’s friend’s one-bedroom, one-bathroom home. Anna shared words of gratitude for the donors and volunteers that will help build her family’s home, "I feel blessed and grateful and I feel appreciative for every single thing they do for being a part of this journey with me. There are no words I can express because it's beyond that. I want to say thank you and that is not even enough."


About the Interfaith Build for Unity

In a time of division, uncertainty, and fear, Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity is working together with our community to build homes, unity, and hope. While El Paso County is home to a diversity of political opinions and theological beliefs, one thing we can all agree on is that everyone deserves a safe and decent place to call home.

Since 2021, Pikes Peak Habitat started bringing together congregations, groups, and communities from a variety of faith traditions, spiritual practices, and beliefs to volunteer, side-by-side, to build affordable homes for families in El Paso County. In March of 2022, Pikes Peak Habitat and our valued partners came together to celebrate the completion of the first Interfaith Build for Unity (IBU) home. The second Interfaith Build for Unity is currently underway. IBU volunteer days are a time of celebrating tolerance, cooperation, and love for one’s neighbor as volunteers come together to help make homeownership possible for a local family.
