Habitat for Humanity of La Plata County offers a Hand UP through affordable Home Ownership Opportunities to households meeting specific income guidelines, need and willingness to partner requirements.
Reaching from our faith-based roots and through cooperative community efforts with businesses and organizations, Habitat provides decent, energy efficient homes where people can grow and prosper.
Statistically, La Plata County has a growing need for housing. In particular, our mission supports the view that through home ownership households are provided the oppprtunity to find stability in their housing which filter through to a level of empowerment that benefits the community as a whole. We need your support locally to make this change possible. Over 51.5% of the current La Plata County wage earners have incomes within our elgibility guidelines. The desparity between incomes is growing annually. Of concern not only for our community, but businesses seeking to retain their workforce.
Join us as we celebrate the empowerment home ownership provides!
