Deadwiler Family Home Building Volunteers!
Volunteers are the very foundation of Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley! Each year, over a thousand individuals in our community come together to help build homes with our partner families.

Come help build an affordable home with the Deadwiler Family!

Eagerly looking forward to life in their new home in Carbondale’s Keator Grove, five-year-old Nyomie Deadwiler and her little sister two-year-old Maliyah have already chosen paint colors for their bedroom. Their parents Alonzo and Kristina are equally excited. “To know that you’re going to be grounded in this valley is an amazing thing,” Kristina said. “There are no words to truly express the appreciation, gratitude, and excitement we have for the opportunity to partner with Habitat and help build our home.”

The Deadwiler Family was chosen from a field of 28 applicants to become Habitat homeowners. Kristina is a full-time Mom, and Alonzo is a service manager at Wells Fargo in Carbondale. Alonzo is no stranger to Habitat as he been a Wells Fargo volunteer with Habitat a number of times. He also has volunteered with Colorado Mountain College and Glenwood Springs High School.

Families that are selected to partner with Habitat in building and purchasing a home must meet certain requirements to prepare them for home ownership. Kristina explains, “We have to do first-time homebuyer classes. We have to save for closing costs and a mortgage.”

But their new home will be far more valuable in the Deadwilers’ eyes than the closing costs and their mortgage. Alonzo says, “The number of people who put love into our new home makes its sentimental value through the roof.”

Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley
In Support of Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley
Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley partners with local families who otherwise would not be able to afford a home of their own, through conventional means. We build homes in partnership with local families in need of a hand-up, not a hand-out.  The wide gap between our high resort area cost of living (especially for housing) and the actual rural community wages makes it difficult to retain teachers, and essential personnel within our area- all who hold jobs that are key to the well being of our children and community, but cannot afford to live close to where they work. 

Our local Habitat has been building homes with lower income families for almost 20 years,  but we have become increasingly aware of the acute need for housing for the middle income workers who provide vital services to our community.  This is what brought about an extraordinary collaboration with the Roaring Fork School District, Pitkin County, and the Town of Basalt to build the Basalt Vista Housing Partnership- located behind Basalt High School- which will provide 27 affordable homes.  

Habitat for Humanity is a movement of people who build more than houses. By bringing homeowners together with volunteers, donors, community leaders, foundations, and other supporters we are building stable families, safe neighborhoods, and caring communities.
