Partner Family Resources

Habitat Metro Denver’s Homeownership program continues to grow and adapt to meet the needs of our many families.  Our current partner families are working to complete 200 hours of sweat equity per applicant.  Sweat equity includes hours spent on the construction site, volunteering at one of our three ReStores, and attending classes to learn how to be a successful homeowner.

Check out the classes listed on the left to plan your attendance at our upcoming classes.  Habitat is working on online courses to make information more accessible to all Partner Families. Learn more here.

Thank you to all of our partner families for working so hard to complete the program requirements and ensuring your own success as a homeowner.
