Giving Tuesday

Please consider supporting your La Plata County Habitat to continue providing opportunities for affordable home ownership to deserving families in our area. In 2017, three families have been able to purchase homes through the efforts of volunteers and donors like you. Each year we reinvest over 98% of our affiliate funds in La Plata County.

Local giving stays local.

Local First

Local First—Be A Localist!localfirstweb

Did you know your local La Plata County Habitat is a member of Local First? We are an independent 501 (c)3 with all of our Board members residing in La Plata County and providing independent decision making on the needs of our local community. Since 1994 we have been building affordable low-income homes for current workforce, veterans, persons with disabilities and our aging populations. Our home OWNERS pay a mortgage equivalent to 30% of their monthly income; thus, are able to live within wages that are often not livable wages. Mortgages range from 20-38 years and often are in deed restricted areas to allow for future sales into similar low-income populations. Currently, 56.5% of our wage earners in La Plata County fall within our local Habitat income eligibility requirements. A crisis in our community. As building needs rise for second homes and smaller rental units, we are noticing fewer housing options for families.
