West Metro Habitat Interfaith Coalition

 

Habitat Metro Denver would like to recognize the West Metro Habitat Interfaith Coalition (formerly Jeffco Partners for Interfaith Action), a diverse coalition consisting of Protestant, Catholic, Unitarian and Religious Scientist congregations for their long partnership. The coalition is made up of 9 congregations and has supported Habitat’s mission since 1998. Overall they have completed 15 Habitat Homes in Metro Denver and are building the 16th in 2016.

This Year's Partner Family

The West Metro Habitat Interfaith Coalition is very excited to partner with Ahmed, Rusul and their two children to build the home of their dreams in 2016.

Ahmed and Rusul work hard to make ends meet and provide for their family. They both attend college while also working - Ahmed as a driver and Rusul as a student peer mentor. With two jobs, the rent on their current apartment takes up more than half of their income. A zero-interest home mortgage from Habitat gives this hard-working family a hand-up in building their home and securing financial stability.

When Ahmed and Rusul moved to the Denver metro area, they made a promise to their family to do whatever they could to build a better future for their kids. Four years later, their promise is a reality as they begin building their new Habitat home, where their 6-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son will be able to grow up healthy and safe.

The generous support and partnership from West Metro Habitat Interfaith makes Ahmed and Rusul’s dream a reality and we thank the coalition for their generous support and partnership this year and for every year prior. Thank you West Metro Habitat Interfaith.

Pumpkin Patch

Each year, West Metro Habitat Interfaith Alliance, formerly known as Jeffco Partners for Interfaith Action) turns pumpkins into houses. Throughout the month of October, coalition volunteers sell pumpkins and donate the proceeds to Habitat Metro Denver. To learn more about West Metro's pumpkin venture, email Tom Brunn at tbrunn2473@aol.com.  

Gratitude Banks

Congregation B’nai Chiam, Jefferson Unitarian, Mile Hi Church and the Sunday School at Arvada United Methodist Church all participate in the Gratitude Banks Project. The children from Arvada United Methodist Church for example raised money for Habitat by expressing gratitude during Lent. Every day the children with their parents would read a Bible passage and celebrate a moment of gratitude by placing coins in a small cardboard bank that looked like a habitat home, for things such as “For each room in your home deposit 25 cents.” Click here to see how to contribute to a gratitude bank.
