Our Mission Statement

Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Our History

Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties was founded in 1995.  Since that time we have served 48 families by creating affordable homeownership opportunities.  

In the first thirteen years, from 1995 to 2007 Habitat served 19 families, building 19 homes.  From 2008 to 2013 we served 29 families, building 28 homes and renovating one.  As these numbers show, we are working diligently to increase building capacity and meet the critical need for affordable homeownership opportunities in Eagle and Lake Counties. 

Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties is poised for ambitious growth in the coming years. We are involved in an exciting $6 million initiative called the 'World of Hope: It Starts at Home' Campaign. The goals include plans to secure a 10 year inventory of land and to build 150 homes (75 locally and 75 internationally) in a ten year period. We will leverage donated dollars through volunteer services, donated materials, grants and mortgage payments. This initiative will create longevity and sustainability for our organization for many years to come.

About Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity in the Vail Valley is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization. Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.  Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

All are welcome 

Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone deserves a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. 

Habitat for Humanity International

Founded in Americus, Georgia, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 800,000 decent affordable houses sheltering more than 4 million people worldwide.
