Why We Build
Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley provides a path for a better life through safe and affordable homes. Habitat homeowners strengthen the fabric of our community. Children who have a safe home have fewer physical and behavioral health problems.
Habitat homeowners are educators, law enforcement officers, tradespeople, healthcare, grocery store and resort employees who make Eagle County a vibrant place to live. However, homeownership is less attainable in 2022 than it was in 2019. COVID-19 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.
Housing + Stability
If anyone knows that a home is transformational, it’s Andrea. She was living on the precipice of stability, raising her two children in an RV without running water, unsure if she would have to move again. Then she became a Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley homeowner. As a homeowner, she no longer worries that she will have to move her family away from a place they love.
Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley is committed to respecting and safeguarding the rights and dignities of all people, and protecting our staff members, volunteers, partners, beneficiaries and community members (especially vulnerable adults and children) from exploitation and abuse.
