What We Do
Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley provides a path for a better life through safe and affordable homes. Children who have a safe home have fewer physical and behavioral health problems. Owning a home is the greatest single source of intergenerational wealth building.
Habitat homeowners are educators, law enforcement officers, tradespeople, healthcare and resort employees who make Eagle County a vibrant place to live. Homeownership is less attainable in 2022 than it was in 2019. Covid exacerbated the problem: In communities where workforce housing was already scarce, the influx of remote workers pushed homeownership further out of reach of our local workforce, decimating available stock.
Ana exemplifies hardwork that motivates and inspires her three children. As a child, Ana’s mom would say, “Grab the bull by the horns and deal with the problem to get your solution.” Ana did just that, building her Habitat home and helping her children get scholarships. Their Habitat home opened doors for the family to thrive.
