Our Faith Relations Vision:
Loveland Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical, Christian based housing ministry that displays the love and care of Jesus Christ through our work in the community.
Our mission: “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Loveland Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.“
Our partnership with the Faith-Based Community has a deep connection through a commitment to faith, community and family, and represents all faiths and denominations. We are here to serve by working side by side, so we can better serve those in Loveland in need of affordable housing.
We would like to learn more about your mission and how we can work together to support affordable housing in Loveland. Please email Chris Zwakenberg, Volunteer & Faith Director, or call at 970-669-9769.
Faith Groups in Loveland Coming Together to Build Community
In 2021, faith communities throughout Loveland are rallying together to build a home for a Habitat family. Everyone can help accomplish this goal, small or large groups, along with any religion or denomination, by contributing their time and resources. There are many ways you can help, and they are not all swinging hammers!
Meet our 2021 Faith Build Homeowner
Samantha is a freelance artist and works at a dental lab here in Loveland. She currently lives in a 1979 5th wheel camper which she houses on a friend’s property. Her housing situation is unsustainable and unsafe due to her disability.
Samantha’s first thoughts when she was accepted into the Habitat program was, “Thank you Lord! I will be able to have a safe, one story place to grow old.” Not only will she have an affordable mortgage, but a garage to help her car last longer, more space to invite friends and family over, and a shorter commute time to work, which was previously 40 minutes one way.
Samantha is looking forward to sharing her home with her loved ones, and having a home filled with peace, security, and God’s love.
Looking to get involved?
One of the easiest ways that you can help to build homes for families in need is to donate to the 2021 Faith Build House. If you are looking to be a little more hands on, we are always in need of volunteers for Faith Build Days at the construction site, as well as volunteers and donations at the ReStore. Even a small action can create a big impact towards providing safe, affordable homes to those who need it most in our community.
We’re so thankful for the support towards our 2020 Faith Build House.
We raised $15,085 for our 2020 Faith Build Homeowner – Sarah!
Sarah, who will be closing on her forever home soon, is a hardworking single mom of 3 great kiddos. Her new Habitat home will provide an avenue by which she can remain in Loveland to raise her 3 children in a decent, affordable home. “Habitat is preparing me with skills and resources to be a successful homeowner, and is helping me level-up to enhance my life in a way that will have lasting impact for years to come.“
