The Carpenter’s Helpers
The Carpenter's Helpers is a faith coalition of seven Presbyterian churches in metro Denver. They work alongside Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver in building homes, raising funds, and creating awareness about the need for safe and affordable housing in our community.
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 a Habitat construction site! No experienced is necessary to come swing a hammer with us for the day! Just contact your church's representative or email our chairperson, Mark Christman.
***Please note: You must be 16 years or older to volunteer 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 pray and 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 help The Carpenter's Helpers meet their sponsorship goal.
