Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver is proud to be the construction partner for the West Denver Single Family Plus ADU Pilot Program. The program helps existing homeowners to plan, price, design, finance, and build an ADU on their residential property, and then rent the ADU affordably.
In 2019, the West Denver Renaissance Collaborative (WDRC) launched the WDSF+ ADU pilot program in collaboration with the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) and a robust network of partners. Habitat Metro Denver acts as the designer and builder in the partnership.
ADUs are one way that Habitat and its partners can provide additional affordable units in our competitive market and prevent overcrowding and instability for existing homeowners.

We need ongoing funding and support from local municipalities and partners in order to build ADUs affordably and make them affordable for the homeowners who want to build ADUs on their land.
