Carter Work Project

Thank you so much to everyone for your support of the 2013 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Denver!

Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver was proud to be a host city for the 2013 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. The 30th annual Carter Work Project was held October 6 - 12th, 2013 and included large-scale building efforts in three locations: Oakland/San Jose, CA; Denver, CO; and New York City/Union Beach, NJ.

Habitat Metro Denver's local Carter Work Project event was held from October 6th - 11th and included the construction of 11 new homes and repair work on 15 existing homes in Denver’s Globeville neighborhood. In addition to construction, we hosted several exciting events throughout the week, including a Community Kick-Off Celebration, Raise the Roof Presidential Dinner and Celebration event, and 26 home dedication ceremonies.

About Denver's Globeville Neighborhood

Globeville is a centrally-located neighborhood just 20 blocks north of downtown Denver. Founded 1889 by Eastern European immigrants, Globeville is one of Denver’s oldest and most culturally diverse neighborhoods.

Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver has been building in the Globeville neighborhood for a number of years. In 2012, Habitat Metro Denver began partnering with families in Globeville to complete critical home repairs on existing houses as part of the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative.
