Home for the Holidays
As the seasons change and festive family gatherings are on the horizon, we’re mindful of those in our community who don’t have a warm and safe home in which to celebrate the holidays.
Fortunately, at Habitat Metro Denver we’re able to help more than 150 local families each year because of generous support from people like you. Together, we’re building brighter futures for essential members of our community – like teachers, nurses and construction workers - who otherwise are struggling to afford to live in the communities that they serve. We’re united in ensuring hardworking people—like Ernesto and Araceli—never have to sacrifice their hopes and dreams in the face of housing challenges.
Making a Tangible Impact
Thanks to our supporters, long-time Elyria Swansea residents Ernesto and Araceli won’t have to worry about being displaced from the neighborhood their family of five has grown to love. In a matter of months, the couple will be first-time homeowners in our Swansea Homes development.
"I love our neighborhood and enjoy volunteering my time at the church and schools here," Araceli shares. "We have family here, our son loves Swansea Elementary, and the library is very close to us."
While the community is ideal, their current rental is not; the family endures pests and chilly winters due to no heat and poor insulation. They wanted better for themselves and, fortunately, Habitat Metro Denver made owning a home in their neighborhood a reality.
Now, with the stress of finding decent and affordable housing behind them, Ernesto and Araceli can focus on fostering their children’s educational and extracurricular pursuits. With a 12-year-old budding violinist studying at the Denver School of the Arts, a 10-year-old outdoor enthusiast and a 3-year-old ready to take the world by storm, the future looks bright.
