Give a gift that everyone will remember, a Home
One third of all Coloradans spend over half their income on housing, making it hard to achieve personal and financial stability and sometimes having to sacrifice essential needs (food, health, education).
Be the light in someones darkness… build with us.
We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy, affordable place to call home.

How we build is just as important as what we build.
Habitat homes that are built are sold to each new Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County homeowner and financed with 15-30 year, interest-free mortgage – making homes affordable for individuals who otherwise would not qualify for traditional financing. Our houses are also built with a contribution of five hundred volunteer hours of “sweat equity” on the part of the soon to be Habitat Homeowner(s). By investing themselves, they develop independence, self-esteem, and social connections.
Habitat Mesa also brings together people with varied skills and economic backgrounds to achieve a common goal of service to others. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and sponsors. Working side-by-side with Habitat homeowners, volunteers and sponsors invest time, money, materials, and their expertise into building Habitat homes. This partnership extends beyond the immediate impact of building a house together; it establishes new relationships and an appreciation of giving back to community.
