Peters Family

About This Campaign

Welcome Habitat for Humanity’s Newest Silt Partner Family:

Crystal Peters is the sole parent of 6 year old Chloe. She has recently become the Colorado River District’s newest Firefighter. Her goal is to show her daughter dreams are achievable. After volunteering for the Fire Department for 4 years, and meeting the organization's maximum allowable volunteer hours she was hired as a part-time firefighter. Crystal is ecstatic for her new full-time benefited position and is already striving to achieve her next goal, studying to become a Paramedic.

Living most of her life in the Colorado River Valley, community involvement has been a way of life for this positive mom, she is also the President of New Castle’s Kathyrn Senor Elementary School Team KSE (PTAC). The positive outlooks she has about life has helped her overcome many challenges, including a traumatic brain injury when she was younger. The struggles she has faced in life gave her the courage, faith and strength to never except no or failure. She has always found a way to get back up, keep going and smile.

No stranger to hard work, Crystals can do attitude will help her while building a home for her family- for the first time in Chole’s life they will not be living with family, but excitedly making a home of their own- thanks to Habitat for Humanity.

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.
