Loveland Habitat for Humanity

Our 2019 Colorado Gives campaign will help us raise the funds needed to help build a new Habitat home in 2019. Our goal is $17,500, roughly 10% of the total cost for a decent, affordable Habitat home. We help families move from overcrowded, unsafe housing into a permanent, affordable home they own.
