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, Pikes Peak Habitat is part of a national effort to not only provide affordable housing solutions (homeownership and home repair) for men and women who have served but also join a larger voice advocating for the needs of our veterans and their families.

As a Veterans Build Affiliate, we’re also committed to seeking more volunteer engagement from veteran groups as well as recruiting veterans for employment, internships, and other service opportunities.

Meet our 5th Veterans Build Partner Family

Damian grew up in Omaha, but the Army brought him to Fort Carson – and eventually to his family. He met Trinady through a friend. At the time, she attended college in her hometown of Alamosa, but her school didn’t have the program she wanted. So she decided to move to Colorado Springs, both for her education and to be closer to Damian.

They soon married, and a few months later, they learned Trinady was pregnant – with twins!

Read about their family.

A Note about the Land

We acknowledge that the land on which we build is the traditional territory of the Ute, Cheyenne and Arapaho Peoples. We also recognize the 48 contemporary tribal nations that are historically tied to the lands that make up this region.
