SM Energy has been a significant partner of Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver Since 2000 and is a long-standing full home sponsor. The company has a lifetime donation totaling more than $900,000 toward building homes and hope in our community. One of SM Energy’s core values is to support the local community, which they have shown through 16 years of partnership with Habitat Metro Denver.
In fact, over this 16 year partnership, SM Energy has sent more than 500 volunteers and contributed many thousands of hours to work on homes for deserving Denver-area families. SM Energy is also a participant in Habitat for Humanity’s World of Hope Campaign—an organization-wide movement to serve an additional 500 families by 2017. As part of that partnership, SM Energy took part in the 2013 Carter Work Project to lend a hand in the construction of 11 new homes and repair work on 15 existing homes in Denver’s Globeville neighborhood.
SM Energy’s 2016 sponsored home will get underway in late summer, with completion scheduled by year end. This townhome in Habitat’s Sable Ridge development in the Montbello neighborhood will be the new home of Mohammad, Yamna and their young son. Mohammad and Yamna's current rental is not safe for their 2-year old son. He is exposed to secondhand smoke and he seems to have an allergy to the carpet that covers most of their apartment. With another baby on the way, Mohammad and Yamna are determined to build a healthier, more stable home for their young family. When asked what they're most looking forward to, they say they can't wait for the stability and safety their new home will bring "We're looking forward to raising our kids in a safe place and spending more quality time together as a family."
With grateful hearts, we offer our sincerest thanks to SM Energy for making a difference for families like Mohammad and Yamna in our community.
