Jeffco Interfaith Partners
Habitat Metro Denver would like to recognize Jeffco Interfaith Partners (formerly West Metro Habitat Interfaith Coalition), a diverse group consisting of Protestant, Catholic, Unitarian and Religious Scientist congregations for their long partnership. The group is made up of eight congregations and has supported Habitat’s mission since 1998. Overall, Jeffco Interfaith Partners has completed 19 metro Denver Habitat homes.
Our 2020 Partner Family: Hareb & Djamila
"Homeownership for our family is the ﬁrst step to success in the United States, and it will open doors for other steps."
Hareb and Djamila moved to Denver just over a year ago, and they work hard to make ends meet. Hareb works more than 40 hours per week at a local food production company, and Djamila is a para-educator in Cherry Creek Schools.
Currently, Hareb and Djamila live with their daughter in an overpriced, small one-bedroom apartment. They are partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver to purchase and build a three-bedroom house in the Swansea Homes community, and they are thrilled about the extra space their new home will provide.
"My little Sophia is eleven months old, but even she will feel a lot of space to walk and play," shares Hareb.
As a Habitat partner family, Hareb and Djamilla each have to contribute sweat equity hours to help build their future home, participate in homeowner education classes, and purchase their home with an affordable mortgage.
They look forward to the day they close on their forever home and receive their keys.
"When we move into our new Habitat house, it will be stability and lots of space; we will be at home."
Sign up to join us out on the construction site, and come swing a hammer with us for a day! No experience is needed.
*Please note: Those younger than 16 are not allowed on the construction site.
Each house is built with donated funds from congregations, individuals, and companies. Every little bit helps. Please take a moment to consider how your gift can help Habitat change lives of families in need. Each donation is a true blessing in the eyes of the family who gets one step closer to their dream of homeownership and a better future for their children.
All donations go directly to Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver and are tax deductible.

June 2020 Home Blessing
In June 2020, we held a socially distanced site blessing for our partner family, Hareb and Djamila, in their new under-construction home. Together we hung over 100 peace cranes between the studs in the walls on both floors of the home.
Each year, Jeffco Interfaith Partners turns pumpkins into houses. Throughout October, group volunteers sell pumpkins and donate the proceeds to Habitat Metro Denver.
Visit the Jeffco Interfaith Partners Pumpkin Patch Each October!
Girls' Night Out
Girls' Night Out is an annual dinner and movie event held at Arvada United Methodist Church. The men of AUMC prepare and serve the dinner, while women enjoy a fun evening with friends. The event is typically held on the Saturday evening before Mother’s Day. Proceeds from ticket sales are donated to Habitat Metro Denver. We are looking forward to the next Girls’ Night Out, to be held in May 2021.
