Two Families Celebrate Their Home Dedications at Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity’s “The Ridge at Sand Creek” Neighborhood
On Wednesday, October 27, 2021, Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) will host a house dedication celebration at Habitat’s “Sand Creek” neighborhood for Lian and Zen’s family and Monya’s family.
In addition to being a new house for Lian, Zen, and their three children, their house is also being built in appreciation of Clark Land Surveying’s 20+ years of support of PPHFH. Clark Land Surveying began operations in 1997, and since 1999 they have regularly donated surveying and development services to PPHFH, helping build homes for more than 100 families in El Paso County.
Monya’s house for her family of three children is the Veterans Build Home. Veterans Build is Habitat for Humanity’s national initiative to provide housing solutions and volunteer and employment opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members, and their families. As an official Veterans Build Affiliate with Habitat for Humanity International, PPHFH is part of a national effort to not only provide affordable and decent homes for men and women who have served, but also join a larger voice advocating for the needs of our veterans and their families. Monya’s house is PPHFH’s third Veterans Build home.
