Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley is celebrating 30 years of service to communities in this area, and is a regular focus of the Mission Moments and Compassion Offerings of the Heart of Longmont UMC.
This past January, because of your generosity, Habitat for Humanity received $3,125.61, a gesture that did not go unnoticed by Executive Director David Emerson. He wrote in a letter, “With your contributions, you help to build strength, stability and self-reliance for each homeowner as their new home is built…”
“…Through your support, Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization program has been recognized by Habitat International as a model for other Habitat affiliates. They have been selected as one of 10 Habitats in the nation to explore the most effective ways to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods.”
As the organization celebrates 30 years, it will also be dedicating its 100th home this winter, thanks to continued support of area businesses, organizations, individuals, and churches. St. Vrain Habitat is now building homes in four communities – Longmont, Lyons, Dacono, and Estes Park.
Part of your donation also builds homes with St. Vrain’s international partners in Cambodia, Paraguary, Lesotho, and Armenia. So far, donors have funded 189 homes internationally.
“None of this work can happen without your wonderful support,” Emerson wrote. “It gives us immense confidence as we make bold plans for 2019.”
