Summit Habitat for Humanity Bringing people together
to build homes, communities and hope
Summit Habitat for Humanity seeks to put love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Summit Habitat for Humanity believes that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity; and when our broader community is engaged in addressing the urgent need for adequate, affordable housing, we all become less vulnerable and more resilient.
In seeking truly transformed communities, Habitat views bringing people together not only to deliver a product — improved housing — but as an essential process for building hope and a belief that healthier communities are achievable and beneficial for all. When we work together, statistics become faces with names, stereotypes are broken and everyone has the opportunity to both give and receive. Only then is lasting change possible.
As we all know, housing is a significant hurdle for many across our communities. Summit Habitat is working alongside Summit County Government, the Summit Combined Housing Authority and our local construction industry to support housing solutions for those wanting to lay down roots.
In addition to improving our community through Brush with Kindness projects, Summit Habitat is proud to be closing on their first of ten homes. Summit Habitat will be welcoming home the Lubneuski family in October as they close on a Dillon Valley home. The home will ensure this long-time local family has a deeper sense of stability, their children have more opportunities, everyone in the home has access to better health outcomes and they can fearlessly lay down roots in the community they love. For Habitat families, homeownership is more than an opportunity to build an asset. It’s a new lease on life. The generosity from individuals, like you, and local businesses across our communities make this and future Habitat homes possible.
Summit Habitat for Humanity is the only nonprofit pursuing local home ownership solutions for those most vulnerable to stagnant wages and raising home costs. Their vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live and with your help, they can get a little closer. Make a donation, shop at the ReStore and join the work of Summit Habitat where they build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter!
