2020 Partnership

Rene and her teenage sons

In 2020, HIA began partnering with Rene to build her new home in Habitat Metro Denver's Swansea Homes community.

HIA's support comes at an especially crucial time for this mother of two teenage sons as they struggle to shelter in place AND manage remote learning in their small apartment. Rene is eager to find a safe, stable place for her family, something that is lacking in her current situation.

"Stability is what we need," Rene exclaims. "My sons and I have had to bounce around and move for too many years, and we're just done. We need to be planted somewhere.

"I believe we were meant to be back here in Denver," shares Rene, a Denver native who moved back to Colorado last year. "I'm so appreciative of Habitat and the entire program."

HIA not only builds homes for families in need; it builds a foundation for interfaith trust, communication and understanding. These individuals are bridging theological differences and putting love into action by using a hammer as an instrument to manifest God's love. We are so thankful for HIA's continued dedication to this ministry of transforming lives for families in need, and we are excited to partner for yet another year as we continue to build homes, communities and hope.
