Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity is a grassroots, Christian, non-profit organization. It is the mission of the Mesa County Habitat for Humanity to build safe, decent, affordable housing for God's people in need.

Organization History

Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County (Habitat) was incorporated in March 1990 by a VISTA volunteer who had been working for the Colorado Coalition for the homeless. He and others saw the need for a community-based affordable housing program for low income families in Mesa County. By the end of 1990, the organization was able to purchase three lots. The first Habitat house was completed and dedicated in October of 1991.
Since 1991, Habitat has evolved from a fully volunteer, non-profit organization to a staff of 10 full-time, 9 part-time and 1 contract employee. Our ReStore (a retail outlet) provides financial support to cover the majority of administrative and operating expenses. To date, Habitat has built 69 homes for deserving, hard-working families here in Mesa County.
Habitat works with people of all faith (or no faith) and belief backgrounds; selling homes at no profit, with no interest charged. We are able to do this through generous donations of labor, money, and materials.
As a grassroots, Christian, nonprofit organization, Habitat builds or renovates homes in partnership with families who qualify for home ownership. Our program is based on three simple criteria: need, willingness to partner with Habitat, and the ability to repay a zero percent interest mortgage.

Testimonials

Pam Cairns, Homeowner to be-12/27/17
Pam was accepted into Habitat's home ownership program in May of 2017. The dream of home ownership felt out of reach for her. "I have always rented my homes and have never had a home of my own." She has grown children that she single handily raised by herself. After her mother's death last year she felt it was necessary to pursue her dream. "Home is a sense of security and safety for me. I believe home is where laughter is shared and memories are made, a place where family and friends are always welcome, filled with laughter, where love resides, filled with God's peach and blessings". Pam greatest joy will be when welcomes her grandchildren to her new home Habitat Home in December.

Nancy Chavez, Homeowner-10/23/17
A single mother of three children, Nancy was concerned about the safety of her family while living in an apartment that was experiencing a high volume of domestic disturbances outside their front door.
Her 13 year old son has come challenging health issues creating an even greaer need for affordable and stable housing. Nancy, and her 17 year old daughter devoted their spare time to putting in sweat equity to achieve their family dream of owning a home.
Nancy's hope was to have their own home, with a yard, so her son can "throw a football in his own yard, instead of having to play in the street"
