Habitat for Humanity: Building More Than Houses


Building More Than Houses:

Montview sponsors new Habitat for Humanity family this summer


May is Habitat for Humanity Month at Montview. For more than 15 years, the Montview congregation has helped hard-working, low-income families build their own homes. This year Montview is sponsoring Thaddeus and his 13-year-old son, Sean. The family currently shares a one-bedroom apartment in an unsafe neighborhood.

Thaddeus is concerned with the amount of drug use in his neighborhood. He knows that this type of environment is a bad influence for his son.

“I’m so thankful for Habitat for Humanity and excited to start working toward homeownership,“ he says.

This year’s Habitat home project is a single family, two-bedroom home at 7th & Quitman in Denver. The family will be a half block from Martinez Park and Lakewood Gulch Trail.

Along with a financial contribution from Montview’s mission fund, Montview must raise $5,000 from member donations during the May campaign and fill volunteer construction slots from June to August. The first scheduled construction date is June 11.

Volunteers never have to perform an activity out of their comfort zone. Many enjoy learning new skills by working closely with experienced volunteers or Habitat staff.

During May’s “Habitat for Humanity at Montview” campaign, watch for opportunities to donate and volunteer. Help make the Robinson family’s dream of home ownership come true.

There are several ways to get involved. Just stop by the Habitat table before or after church during the month of May to make a donation to meet our $5,000 goal, volunteer to work on the house, or bring lunch to the volunteer construction crew.

You can CLICK HERE TO DONATE and sign up to volunteer online (see below).

Please note that volunteers must be at least 16 years old to work on the site.
