Holy Hammers

The Holy Hammers is a faith coalition comprised of 18 Lutheran churches in the Denver metro area.  They have worked alongside Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver since 1996 to build homes, raise funds, and create awareness about the need for safe, decent, affordable housing in our community.  So far, Holy Hammers has been part of building 36 homes.  Holy Hammers is proud to partner with Cynthia Gries’ family. 

Cindy and her 10-year old daughter are so excited to partner with Habitat to own their own home. Cindy currently works full-time as an Assembler at Terumo BCT to provide financially for her family, while also raising her daughter on her own. She had felt like there was always a wall in the way of achieving her goal of being a homeowner.

Cindy has worked for a long time to find a way out of their current living situation. The apartment she rents has problems with pests like roaches and mice despite Cindy’s best efforts to eradicate them. Despite the pests inside, Cindy’s 10-year-old daughter must play indoors because she frequently sees problems with drugs and dangerously speeding cars outside their apartment.

By purchasing a new home with an affordable mortgage with Habitat, Cindy can provide a clean, safe environment for her young daughter. Additionally, Cindy is excited to live in one home throughout her daughter’s school years since she remembers moving around frequently as a child and knows how important stability is for a child’s education.

For Cindy and her daughter, their Habitat home will be a stable, secure, and safe place for them to live & grow, with lifelong friendships with the other families and children that will be moving into Sheridan Square.

Thank you Holy Hammers for your longtime partnership and support of families’ dream of a safe, affordable home in Denver.
