Due, in part, to those opportunities, Denver has also become the most expensive non-coastal city in the country. This has created an enormous need for affordable housing. You have the power to help by serving with Habitat Metro Denver. Grow as an individual, grow your leadership skills, and help hardworking families have decent, affordable places to call home.

AmeriCorps connects individuals and organizations to tackle the nation’s most pressing challenges. 

AmeriCorps focuses on these key areas to make an impact: economic opportunity, disaster response, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.

The Habitat for Humanity AmeriCorps program is part of this growing national service movement. In partnership with Habitat organizations throughout the U.S., our program places AmeriCorps members to serve in the field and in the office to build and repair homes, expand housing services and engage the community. A service term with Habitat provides hands-on nonprofit experience that allows members to learn and develop lifelong skills and confidence. Our members serve a critical role in helping Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future for themselves and their families.
