Don’t Miss It! New Hope Habitat / Loaves & Fishes Highlight on March 18th
On Sunday, March 18th, we’ll have our Habitat for Humanity mission focus. This is one not to miss since Francisco and Lisa and their children, the family who this home is for, will join us in both services! They are a very special family, and we’re confident you’ll love them as much as the team does that has been helping build the home. Since our time will be limited in the service, we wanted to have you meet them – virtually – in advance and acquaint you with a bit more background on Habitat and Loaves & Fishes. Click on the link to see a wonderful video of when they surprised their children with the news and tour of the home: Christmas Surprise!
New Hope has been focused on Habitat as a mission for nearly 15 years. We’re part of the 12-church Loaves & Fishes coalition that has been helped build 19 different homes. Cisco and Lisa’s home is part of Sheridan Square, the largest development in Habitat Metro Denver’s history. Located on a 4-acre site, Habitat’s plans include the construction of 63 energy-efficient homes. With housing costs skyrocketing across metro Denver, Habitat’s mission of building and preserving affordable housing has never been more important. Habitat’s goal is to help families achieve strength, stability and independence through building and purchasing their own home.
There is often a misconception that these homes are free to the new owners - which is not the case at all. Through the Habitat homeownership program, they sell homes to qualified families at an affordable mortgage rate, no down payment, and a set monthly
mortgage payment that does not exceed 30% of a family's gross monthly income. Habitat Metro Denver also requires that each applicant complete 200 hours of sweat equity.
So, there’s a significant commitment by the family in this, and a wonderful path to long-term success.
Our thanks to you – all of you who have participated in making these homes possible through your hard work and your contributions. Without the help of partners like New Hope and Loaves & Fishes, Habitat could not build and sell affordable houses to Denver families.
