2018 Women Build

Since 1991, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities. The Women Build is available to any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home and we invite you to join us, no experience is necessary! Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few more to your tool belt, this is a worthwhile experience for everyone involved, and you can help improve your community.

Thrivent Financial has generously offered to match 50% of the cost to build a home and challenges the faith community to do the same! If we all come together to build a home the heavy burden will become lighter as we join as a group to provide a proven pathway out of the cycle of poverty in our community. Greeley-Weld Habitat for Humanity wants this to be a joining of all the members of the faith community in Weld County to help fully fund and build this home for a deserving Partner family.

The National Low Income Housing Coalition finds that 2.5 million veterans heading households are at least 55 years of age. Of those 2.5 million veterans, 24 percent have housing cost burdens. Unlike our older civilians, our older veterans are more likely to have a disability — 35 percent versus 28 percent — which may require home modifications, health, and other supportive services as they age. Nearly 4 million of our veterans pay at least 30 percent of their income toward rent or mortgage, while more than 1.5 million pay at least 50 percent. As you can imagine, using half of your income to pay your rent or mortgage is an enormous strain on any budget.

 

Greeley-Weld Habitat for Humanity built the first 2 Veteran Habitat Homes in Colorado in 2016, and in 2017. Both Habitat homes are a part of a special project that focuses on veteran families in our local community. The Veterans Build project helps provide access to quality affordable housing, which allows the opportunity to have veteran families engage with the community, fellow veterans, and gives them the change to serve others by volunteering.

 

We give a hand up, not a handout, to our Partner Families to help them learn new skills, grow their confidence and make a positive difference.

 

A special thanks to our Veterans Build sponsors, the Town of Hudson, Anadarko Petroleum, Atmos Energy, and Guaranty Bank and Trust.
