The Habitat Metro Denver AmeriCorps Experience
At the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Denver provides endless potential for adventure and exploration, with all the perks of a major metropolitan city. Due, in part, to those opportunities, the metro Denver area has become the most expensive non-coastal city in the country. This has created an enormous need for affordable housing. You have the power to help by serving with Habitat Metro Denver.
- quick access to outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, biking and camping
- excellent bike paths
- affordable eateries
- craft breweries
- sports events
- music venues
At the end of each day, you can rest and relax in the subsidized housing we provide our AmeriCorps members. Each unit has private bedrooms, a full kitchen, outdoor space, and designated parking.
This is your chance to join a community that has a lot to offer, grow as an individual and member of a team and, most importantly, help hardworking families have decent, affordable places to call home.
