Start the NEW Year Strong!

I want to invite all my fellow Denver peeps to start the year out strong with me.....

 Time: 9:00AM-4:30PM
Date: Saturday, January 28th
Location: Choose from two locations: Globeville or Sheridan!

Denver is a great place to live. With more and more people moving to our beautiful city, one negative effect is the impact it's having on our housing market. We keep reading about the rising costs of housing in Denver, the lack of affordable options, and the impact this is having on lower and middle income residents. A recent Denver Post article shared that an earner now needs to make $35 an hour -- more than four times the minimum wage -- in order to afford the median priced rental in Denver. This cost is out of reach for so many people in our community.

We need 21 committed volunteers across two project locations; 8 volunteers in Globeville and 13 volunteers in Sheridan. We ask that volunteers commit to building the full time from 9:00AM-4:30PM. No previous building experience is needed.

Join us as we repair homes and help low-income homeowners with much-needed home restoration so that they can live in a safe and affordable home. Volunteers will be able to help with repairs such as such as new shingles, soffit and fascia replacement, new siding or paint work, porch repairs and more.

All participants must register online at least two weeks before the build day event. To register for this project, please:

1. Go to http://vhub.at/groupbuilddenver.
2. Click “Sign In” in the upper right hand corner of the screen
3. New to Volunteer Hub? On the “Not Registered Yet” screen, click “Register”.
4. One of the registration steps will ask you to enter a Join Code. Enter­­­­­ BIS
5. After you have registered and entered the Join Code, scroll to January 28th, locate Because I Said I Would, then click the “Sign Up” button located to the left of the build at Sheridan or Home Repair in Globeville.

Registering online ensures that we receive the volunteer packet, which contains liability waivers, directions, and FAQs about our build day. Please use the volunteer packet for directions to the build site and more information about project details.

Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older to build on site. Lunch will be provided.

This project is in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. Habitat Metro Denver builds and sells homes in partnership with hard-working, low-income families who are willing to work hard to become homeowners. In addition, Habitat works with existing low-income homeowners in Denver’s Globeville, Swansea, and Elyria neighborhoods to do critical home repairs so that they can continue to live in safe and affordable home
