Habitat For Humanity Marketing and Capacity VISTA
 
 
 
Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity (GAHFH) brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Our mission is to work in partnership with community partners and families in-need to build decent affordable homes. GAHFH is recognized as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, which has built over 200,000 homes worldwide through the work of 1,600 U.S. affiliates and affiliates in 100 countries throughout the world. Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity arguably serves the most economically marginalized families in our community by partnering with families who earn as little as 25% of the area median income. Other local agencies, on the other hand partner with families that earn upwards of 50% of the area median income. Thus, families with very low earnings cannot qualify for other affordable housing programs; GAHFH provides an opportunity for these families to purchase a simple decent home. The families that we serve will benefit greatly for generations to come, building a stable financial future for their children and their children's children.
