Habitat for Humanity of Colorado annually develops a training plan addressing both the needs affiliates, ReStores and HFHC have identified. HFHC receives direct feedback from affiliates, funding partners and HFHC’s board of directors to help strategically plan for capacity building. Training opportunities include an annual conference, Camp Colorado or ReStore Conference: Building Business Forum, one day training events, networking opportunities, and individualized affiliate training and planning retreats and conference calls.
In addition, through a three year partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture – Rural Development, HFHC has developed the Rocky Mountain Rural Sustainability Initiative. The program is a direct investment into the boards and staffs of rural organizations, bringing resources, expertise, and training opportunities and putting them in the hands of affiliates.
