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 18 metro Denver Habitat homes.
2018 Partner Family
Jeffco Interfaith Partners is proud to have partnered with Starlynn and Froilan in 2018 to build the home of their dreams.
Starlynn and Froilan are the proud parents of two daughters and a son, all between the ages of 12 and 17. The family of five stays very busy as the three kids seem to grow faster every day, and Starlynn works full time as a technician for the state, while Froilan takes care of the kids.
Before moving into their Habitat home, the family lived in an expensive, cramped apartment. The uncertainty of how much rent could increase with each lease—on top daily expenses of caring for their family of five—wore on them daily.
By partnering with Habitat Denver, Starlynn and Froilan will have "a greater future of finances and space,” Starlynn shared. “Our daughters will finally have their own room. We will be able to save for other things besides increasing rent.”
In addition to gaining personal space, the family is excited to have a home with a yard, and “a place where our kids can go outside and not have to worry, and a place for our dogs.”
Starlynn and Froilan are grateful for everyone who makes Habitat’s affordable homeownership program possible. The generous support and partnership from Jeffco Interfaith Partners made Starlynn and Froilan's dream a reality; thank you for your generous support and partnership this and every year.

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.

Each year, Jeffco Interfaith Partners turns pumpkins into houses. Throughout October, group volunteers sell pumpkins and donate the proceeds to Habitat Metro Denver.
Girls' Night Out
The 9th annual Girls' Night Out at Arvada United Methodist Church was a great success. Dinner was served in the Fellowship Center and the movie, “Hidden Figures” was shown in the sanctuary.
While the men of the AUMC prepared and served dinner, the women retired to the sanctuary to view "Hidden Figures," the true story of three black, female mathematicians were key to the first manned space orbit and became honored members of NASA. Ticket sales reached a total of 150, the largest this event has ever seen.
After expenses, $3,400 was raised to help fund our 2017 Habitat for Humanity home. Tips collected totaled $778, a new high!
A huge thanks goes to Carolyn and Alan Williams, who organized this large undertaking.
