Habitat For Humanity of Montrose County became an affiliate in July 1991. We have constructed over 50 Habitat homes and have completed 22 repair projects. In 1996, the affiliate began developing a 7 1/2 acre subdivision within the Montrose city limits. The 7 1/2 acres have been subdivided into 29 lots, and are now known as the Mesa Vista Subdivision. Twenty-six Habitat families now reside in Mesa Vista.
There are 6 Habitat homes in San Miguel County in the town of Norwood.
In December 2014, we acquired Ouray and San Miguel Counties and became Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans. We currently have three homes under construction, and dedicated our 50th home in 2015.
In 2015, we also relaunched a critical home repair program in order to help low income homeowners with critical home needs.
The affiliate tithes quarterly to Habitat International. Through this tithing, over 26 families have received homes in foreign countries.
Faith is what Habitat for Humanity was founded on. It is what has kept us a vital force in our world for more than 30 years. Our homes are built on faith and put together with love. There is no stronger force in our universe. Habitat would not be what it is today had we not embraced people of all faiths and no faith to come together and work side by side. We seek to uphold what Millard Fullers vision was when he created this great organization.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations (HFH) will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must (i) adhere to or convert to a particular faith or (ii) listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
