In response to the prophet Micah’s call to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all, and we support the global community’s commitment to housing as a basic human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. And, in all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically, and religiously unacceptable.
Habitat for Humanity monitors, and when needed, acts upon state legislation affecting our ability to build, the quality of life for people living in poverty, and the general state of affordable housing throughout Colorado. Together we can create a Colorado that is able to better meet the housing needs for the vulnerable citizens in our communities – so that all of our families have a foundation upon which they can build hope for a better future.
HFHC invites all Colorado State Legislators to learn more about our organization and engage in our mission to create more affordable homeownership opportunities. This year, HFHC is proud to announce that Representative Shannon Bird and Senator Don Coram are the first recipients of the organization’s Legislators of the Year Award. HFHC identified these two Colorado policymakers for their commitment and support to ensure that all Coloradans can afford the cost of a home. They both have fought for affordable homeownership through their public policy work during the 2020 legislative session and throughout the year.
