Habitat Metro Denver builds and sells homes in partnership with hard-working, low-income families who are willing to work hard to become homeowners. In addition, Habitat works with existing low-income homeowners in Denver’s Globeville, Swansea, and Elyria neighborhoods to do critical home repairs so that they can continue to live in safe and affordable homes.
Roughly one in six Americans is currently in need of a decent, affordable place to live. The need in Colorado is equally dire – 47% of all renter households are paying 30% or more of their income toward housing and are considered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development to be housing burdened. In Denver, we need 21,000 additional affordable housing units to meet the needs of all of those living in substandard housing.
