Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity is built on our mission to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Bringing people together, to help shape the world around us for the better, is at the foundation of our work and at the heart of our relationship with supporters like you. GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
We're committed to supporting families in need of decent, permanent, and affordable housing and current homeowners experiencing financial difficulties, but we need your support, now more than ever, to do so. Support these families by donating to our El Paso County Housing Stability Fund. We've always believed that we're all in this together, and together, we will build back.
Why do we need your help, now more than ever? Your donation will:
- Help offset loss of revenue from ReStore closure & restricted sales
- Ensure support of our homeowners who have lost wages or jobs
- Help finish four homes that are currently in progress, supporting subcontractor hire costs to offset loss of volunteer support
- 90% of a PPHFH home is usually built by volunteers
- We've had to cancel 17 volunteer days and 26 volunteer groups due to the COVID-19 restrictions
As we're asked to be "safer-at-home", we're reminded that our homes are truly our only safe place. But for so many families, home isn't a safe or healthy place. We’re working hard on our construction sites, at our ReStore, at our business office, and remotely to ensure that we can support our current homeowners who are experiencing financial difficulties during this time and continue to build homes for our future homeowners. PPHFH is working tirelessly toward our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
If you can make a donation during this time, please consider donating to Pikes Peak Habitat's El Paso County Housing Stability Fund to support current and future homeowners today.
