Our vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live
At Flatirons Habitat for Humanity, we know that a world in which every person has a decent place to live is also a more educated and equitable world. By creating opportunities for affordable homeownership, we strengthen families and communities.
Our mission: to build strength, stability, self-reliance - and shelter
Flatirons Habitat for Humanity partners with the people in our community - and across the world - to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With the support of our volunteers, partners, and donors, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build better lives for themselves and for their families.
Our history: serving the community for 25 years
Habitat for Humanity was established in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller with the goal of providing adequate shelter to those in need. Today, Habitat for Humanity has served more than 9.8 million people in more than 70 countries around the world, and completes the construction or repair of a home every four minutes.
Flatirons Habitat was chartered as a Habitat for Humanity International affiliate in 1993. Our first homeowners, the Portillos, moved into their Habitat home on May 21, 1994. Since then, we have served nearly 100 families in the Boulder-Broomfield area by building, repairing, and rehabilitating homes.
Flatirons Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with our work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.
As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
