About Augustana Homes

Augustana Homes includes three- and four-bedroom layouts with two bathrooms per unit, as well as outdoor green space and dedicated parking. These homes will feature all electric appliances and an improved insulation system in the walls, keeping homeowners’ utility bills low. The homes are in the Denver Public Schools District and are close to local transit and businesses on Leetsdale Drive and Colorado Boulevard.   

Augustana Homes are possible thanks to a partnership with Augustana Lutheran Church, which is leasing the land to Habitat Metro Denver for the homes to be built. The church put out a request for proposals (RFP), inviting applications for an affordable housing developer to build homes on church-owned land. Habitat Denver responded to the RFP, and will now be able to build eight affordable homes on the site.   

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of the U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
