Mission Statement


Our mission is to build safe, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with hard-working families in need. This grassroots effort is made possible through the generous donations of materials, money, and labor from members of the Fort Collins community. Habitat provides a 0% interest loan on which Habitat homeowners pay a monthly mortgage payment that does not exceed 30% of their income. Habitat homeowners also save a downpayment and contribute up to 500 hours of "sweat equity" in the bulding of their home and at our Habitat Home Supply Store.

Description


Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat International, and has built 33 homes in Fort Collins since its inception in 1993. Habitat builds houses in partnership with families in need, giving them hope to rise above discouraging, ever-increasing housing costs by giving them a home where they can build a life. The strength and foundation of a home can be the hope that transforms the life of a family. In a grassroots effort, Habitat brings people together from all walks of life and builds community while building hope and homes. Volunteering with Habitat is much more than swinging a hammer. There are jobs for every age and skill level. A heart to help is all that is required.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry. While our roots are Christian, we practice the "theology of the hammer," where anyone-- of any faith or no faith at all-- can pick up a hammer, put aside their differences, and unite by putting their faith into action.
