Community is the coming together of people to prevail.  This is just what happens through Habitat for Humanity every day.  People come together to realize a better world by creating dignity through affordable housing.  Annually in Chaffee County three hundred people come together by volunteering over 10,000 hours to recycle, reuse, reduce, and rebuild through ReStore and construct, support, educate, and persevere in the creation of affordable homes in partnership with local families.

You are invited to get involved in this transformational community. Everybody is welcome!

May your day be blessed,
Jill Smola Executive Director

2015 Bike & Build: Drywall

Two groups comprised of more than sixty dedicated young adults embarked on a life-changing journey with the Bike & Build Organization. The first group of cyclists left Nags Head, North Carolina on May 15th heading towards their final destination of San Diego, California. The second group departed from New Haven, Connecticut on June 2nd and will arrive at their endpoint of Half Moon Bay, California on August 14th.  Combined, these two teams ride 7,655 miles, visit multiple communities and fund-raise, while working towards their mission to benefit affordable housing and empower young adults for a lifetime of service and civic engagement. Their hard work, compassion, and dedication to the affordable housing cause are greatly appreciated and admired throughout the United States.

2015 Bike & Build: Landscaping

Chaffee County is designated as a build stop by each of these groups. This year the teams will work at the 124/126 Starbuck Circle construction site in Salida. The NC2SD team will arrive in Buena Vista on June 30th and will spend July 1st at the build site. The CT2CA team will reach Salida on July 16th and will work at the site on July 17th. Each team will cruise into the valley with the purpose of assisting Chaffee County Habitat for Humanity in providing decent, affordable housing in our community.

If you would like to help us welcome these teams or provide meals, please contact CCHfH at 719-395-0482 or email angela@chaffeehabitat.org.

 Chaffee County Students Hold Snack Drives for Habitat

Students from the Crest Academy & the Buena Vista High School Interact Club held snack drives for volunteers working at the CCHfH summer build site. Chaffee County certainly came together to support Chaffee County Habitat for Humanity in working towards their mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Sub Floor Framing-2

Sub Floor Framing

Chaffee County Habitat for Humanity broke ground on our 18th and 19th Habitat Homes on January 8th, 2016. The excavation and structural concrete are complete; we are currently working on the framing phase of the project. We would like to invite everyone to get involved in the 2016 CCHfH summer build season.
We rely primarily on volunteers to help us build and could never accomplish our mission without their generosity. You can be a part of our efforts by contributing in one of three ways: 1by volunteering your time to building at the Starbuck Circle home site, 2by a monetary donation toward the building of homes, or by 3sponsorship of meals for the build site volunteers. Team Build Days are a great opportunity for a company to engage their employees in a positive team-building activity while tangibly giving back to the community.
