Habitat breaks ground for 20th home in Archuleta County

Last Sunday, Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County (HfHAC), along with the Metz Family and friends, broke ground for the 20th Habitat home to be built here in Archuleta County.

Clay and Robin Metz will partner with habitat to help build a four-bedroom home in Pagosa Lakes.

Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County (HfHAC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to partnering with low-income families to build simple, decent, affordable houses with no-interest mortgages. Families are chosen based on need and the willingness to partner in the building of their home.

During this next year the Metz family and their friends and family will contribute approximately 500 hours of sweat equity into the building of their home. Robin and Clay will not only help build their own home, they will work alongside with volunteers from all walks of life to build their lives, build this community, and build friendships that will last forever. It takes approximately 2,500 volunteer hours to build one Habitat home. Generous support also comes from local businesses and organizations.

If you are passionate about eliminating poverty housing in our county and are interested in volunteering with an outstanding organization dedicated to affordable housing, we have a job for you. A variety of volunteer positions are available, from house building to serving on a committee.

The mission of Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County, Inc. is to partner with families in need and people of all faiths to provide affordable housing as a ministry in service to our Lord Jesus Christ. If you would like to know more about how you can become involved in this mission as a volunteer, financial supporter or potential partner family, contact Cindi Galabota at 264-6960.
