Home for Habitat ReStore Campaign

Home for Habitat ReStore Campaign

About This Campaign

Since our founding in 2007, Habitat for Humanity
of the Roaring Fork Valley’s ReStore has helped
individuals and families furnish and improve their homes,
saving them money and enhancing their quality of life.
We now have the opportunity to construct a permanent
home of our own to ensure our ever expanding service
to valley residents and visitors. We ask supporters to help
us achieve OUR dream of home ownership. Your generous
gift to the “Home for Habitat ReStore Campaign” will
help enable us to continue building homes, hope
and community.

Currently, Habitat rents a total of 51,000-sq.ft.
of retail space. Our main facility alongside Highway
82 between Carbondale and Glenwood Springs houses our
Furniture Boutique, Home Improvement Warehouse and
our office. As the main thoroughfare between Glenwood
Springs, other communities further west and Aspen, this
location is most convenient to the public. We rent two
additional stores, each about 15 minutes away in opposite
directions. One ReStore is in Glenwood Springs near the
Meadows Mall, and the second is in Basalt in a large former
grocery store.

These separate locations can be inconvenient for shoppers,
They also result in logistical problems and higher operating
costs for Habitat. Moreover, these aging, inefficient
buildings require costly investments that we, as renters,
cannot afford.

As happened all around the United States, our
communities suffered financially when the real estate
market and economy took a nose dive in 2007-08. Since
then, Habitat, as a nonprofit organization, has been able
to rent retail space at mostly affordable rates. Increasingly,
as the economy improves, landlords are unwilling
to consider long-term leases at our present rates.
Subject to rising rents, both short- and long-term, our
existing ReStore facilities face an uncertain future.

Habitat for Humanity RFV is grateful for the
wonderful support that we have received for our
“Home for Habitat ReStore Campaign” to date. e United
States Department of Agriculture is assisting with a loan to
help construct the store and enable us to better serve our
communities. Our loan payments will be less expensive
than continuing to lease space.

Generous donors, including individuals and foundations,
have contributed an additional $1,025,000. This leaves just
$540,000 remaining to be raised to complete the financing
of our new facility and break ground. Every gift, no matter
its size, counts towards our goal, and we assure all donors
that we will be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us.
Please join us in securing Habitat’s service to families and
communities now and far into the future. Your gift will
help to build an optimal, inviting and welcoming home
for Habitat, thereby ensuring that we can continue to carry
out our mission. Major donors will be recognized on a special permanent Recognition Wall in the new store.

We invite your participation in this far-reaching endeavor.

Your meaningful contribution will be an enduring
investment in the lives of families and in the well-being
of Roaring Fork Valley communities.

Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley

Campaign to Support 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 building stable families, safe neighborhoods, and caring communities.
