2010 – February – Second offering of our Financial Fitness course designed to help participants learn how to identify their financial goals, get control of their spending, and take positive steps to reach financial security.  This eight week course teams families with mentors who continue to meet with the family on an on-going basis over the next year.  Our goal is to offer this class once a year to families in the county.

2010 –April 24 – Ground breaking for the 2010 Habitat house in Hot Sulphur Springs at Moffat and Hemlock streets.  Mark your calendars and join us to celebrate a new beginning for the Bailey family.

2012 – June 3rd at 1 p.m.  Groundbreaking for our 2012 Habitat house located at 556 E. Nevava in Hot Sulphur Springs.  This house is a milestone for Habitat in Grand County — our 10th Habitat house in Grand County and our second Energy Star rated house.

2012 – August 14 – Launch of our new Habitat Homeownership Program class for applicants – how to qualify for the Habitat program financially

2012 – August 21- Third offering of our Financial Fitness course.  Course is opened up to applicants for our home ownership program as well as existing homeowners and new partner families.

When we complete a Habitat house we sell it to the family with a no-interest, no profit first mortgage and a monthly payment that does not exceed 25 – 30% of their monthly income.  The term of this mortgage is generally 30 years.

Our work has not only built houses for low income families in the county but also has built houses that will remain affordable for the long term.  One house at a time we are building a base of affordable housing in the County and taking significant steps toward eliminating poverty housing in the county.
