The Carpenter’s Helpers
The Carpenter's Helpers is a faith coalition of eight Presbyterian churches in the Denver metro area. They work alongside Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver in building homes, raising funds, and creating awareness about the need for safe and affordable housing in our community. The Carpenter’s Helpers are proud to construct yet another home with Habitat in 2018-19.
The Carpenter's Helpers are building alongside Mohammad and Wajma to construct a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home for their family of five.
“We are excited to build our own home and be able to have something that is all ours," Mohammad expressed.
Before coming to Denver two years ago, Wajma and Mohammed lived in Afghanistan. They chose to move to Denver to be with friends and family and to ensure the safety of their children. Wajma and Mohammed are proud parents of three, ages 7 to almost 3-years old. Wajma is a hard-working stay at home mother while Mohammed works full-time as a security officer.
Their family currently lives in an old overcrowded apartment that is falling apart due to lack of maintenance. They worry for the safety and health of their children as the landlord does not respond to pest issues or leaks in the apartment.
“Our friends were a great help and when we discovered Habitat Denver we were eager to become a partner family,” shares Mohammed.
“I cannot wait to build our home and have space for our children to grow up in a safe neighborhood.”Wajma continues, “Not having to worry about safety and being more financially secure will allow us to set new goals for our family’s future.”
Thank you Carpenter’s Helpers for your longtime partnership and support of families’ dream of a safe, affordable home in Denver.
