The Campaign for Pikes Peak Community helps to bring awareness to the local community about Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity’s mission by highlighting events and volunteers in the region. Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to “bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.” Home Builders Blitz is an annual event in which Habitat for Humanity International and affiliates partner with their local building companies to build affordable homes for low-income families across the country. Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity partnered with Aspen View Homes during Home Builders Blitz to build a Habitat home for the Garnes family. Aspen View Homes Funded the event along with their 22 trade partners, sponsors and volunteers. The Home Builders Blitz event kicked off on Saturday June 4, 2016 and completed on Thursday June 9, 2016. Over 100 volunteers worked over 144 hours and completed the Garnes’ family home in less than a week. The Home Dedication was celebrated on June 12, 2016 at 2 p.m. Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity builds affordable housing and welcomes everyone in the community to volunteer regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views and any other dividing distinctions. Volunteers can choose to work on the construction sites, do event support, administrative work or volunteer in the ReStore. Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity is an Equal Housing Opportunity non-profit organization that encourages and supports an affirmative advertising and marketing program. Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity receives revenue from a number of sources such as contributions, grants, and in-kind donations. Habitat homes are not free, homeowners are required to put between 350 – 500 hours of “sweat equity,” go to consumer credit counseling and pay a zero interest mortgage.
