Habitat for Humanity is about tearing down walls and building bridges. It is about bringing hope and transforming lives. It is about faith and serving others.
Our vision is that all people deserve and will have a decent and affordable home. “Building on Faith” propels this movement forward and creates real change while bringing hope to those in need. As a nonprofit ecumenical Christian housing ministry, Habitat and the churches of La Plata County are natural partners. By working together we can serve God’s children by providing simple, decent housing to low-income families. Our mission is an opportunity to put faith and love into action while bringing diverse groups of people together and making affordable housing and stronger communities a reality for all. Through our collective efforts we can make simple, decent and affordable housing a matter of conscience and action!
