Featured Partner: Broomfield Community Foundation
Since 1993, the Broomfield Community Foundation has invested more than $2.1 million into the Broomfield community and assembled a $1.2 million community endowment. Through this generosity, this organization has assisted in strengthening over 100 community nonprofits, and FHFH is grateful to be one of their beneficiaries.
For more than 15 years, Broomfield Community Foundation has supported Flatirons Habitat for Humanity's mission to help Broomfielders build or improve a place they can call home. This partnership has been sustained and enhanced through annual contributions to FHFH through financial donations, volunteerism, and affordable housing advocacy.
Thanks to funding from Broomfield Community Foundation, FHFH is expanding access to safe, decent, and affordable homes in Broomfield. We recently revived our Critical Home Repair (CHR) program, which helps homeowners with essential repair projects so they can continue living in their homes for years to come. From building wheelchair-accessible ramps to making structural repairs, our CHR program helps ensure that Broomfield homes are safe and accessible.
We are also in the planning and development stages of a unique collaboration with Discovery Church. The build will include twelve Habitat homes (triplexes) and a small nonprofit community build on land donated by Discovery. Three of the Habitat homes will be transitional housing in partnership with the City of Broomfield.
The Broomfield Community Foundation is also a key partner for FHFH advocacy work. As leaders in the Broomfield Housing Opportunity Coalition, both organizations work with fellow nonprofits, faith communities, nonprofits, and business and local government leadership to advocate for affordable and attainable housing in Broomfield.
“For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people's love and concern for each other.” – Millard Fuller (Habitat for Humanity Co-Founder). As the cost of homes continue to rise, FHFH looks forward to the continued collaboration with the Broomfield Community Foundation which is focused on a shared love and concern in creating opportunities for affordable homeownership in Broomfield.
