Habitat Metro Denver would like to recognize Habitat Helpers, a coalition of Catholic, Baptist and non-denominational churches for their continued partnership with Habitat. Their dedicated group is made up of representatives from 8 congregations in the Denver Metro area and have supported Habitat’s mission since 2005 when they became a partner coalition. Habitat Helpers are proud to be constructing their 14th home in 2019 and to partner with Donna and Christopher’s family.
Donna and Christopher are proud parents of two sons (15 and 13) and one daughter (8). Donna and Christopher want the brightest futures for their kids and work hard to provide for their family. Donna currently works as a para-educator for Jefferson County Public School District while Christopher is a full-time maintenance technician at a local real estate company.
Currently, Donna and Christopher feel stuck in their overcrowded apartment due to the skyrocketing rental rates in metro Denver. The neighborhood they are in is unsafe and both Donna and Christopher worry about their children’s safety. In addition, having a family of five all in one small apartment has become extremely difficult for their children since they do not have their own space for homework or down-time.
By partnering with Habitat for Humanity, Donna and Christopher are currently building their future home at our College View Community and look forward to the stability homeownership will bring to their future. They look forward to purchasing their own home where they know they’ll have affordable and consistent mortgage payments that will provide financial security for their entire family. “We are really excited about having somewhere to call home,” writes Donna. “My family will have stability and a safe neighborhood to live in.”
“Something else I am very excited about is knowing my children will always have clean clothes because we will have our own washer and dryer instead of using the community one which is very unreliable,” shares Donna.
The additional benefits of owning their own home are not lost on the family. “My kids are excited to have a brand-new home with a backyard,” Donna shares. “We are most excited about making this house our home, creating my dream garden, owning a pet, and make lasting memories.”
Thank you Habitat Helpers for assisting one more family in 2019 to reach their dream of a safe, affordable home.
