Your Financial Support Helps Build a Stronger Community
Working alongside families and volunteers brings home the challenges of affordable housing. We live in a fantastic community that is fast growing and increasingly prosperous. But there are many in our community who struggle with providing decent, affordable housing for their family. That’s where we need your help and financial donations.
We put donations to work where they’re needed most.
All donations help advance our affordable home ownership mission in Loveland. Imagine, for $5 or more a month, you’re helping a family build an affordable home. And studies show that affordable homeownership leads to increased graduation rates and healthier families.
The demand for affordable housing continues to grow, and construction costs have risen steadily as well. It currently costs us approximately $154,000 for a single family home. The bulk of costs are big ticket items:
- Land and development costs: $50,000
- Excavation and foundation: $34,000
- Trim and Paint: $15,900
- Floors and framing: $13,400
- Roof installation and materials: $11,300
- Siding and Trades: $9,350
- Plumbing and Supplies: $6,950
- Drywall: $4,900
- Electrical: $3,400
- Landscaping: $1,700
It’s important to remember that this is not a hand-out, each Habitat family works alongside volunteers, helping to build and purchase their home. Once the house is complete, they become owners, paying a mortgage that is affordable, so they can build equity and care for their family in a safe and stable neighborhood.
