“We have 50 CEOs out with us building today. They’re companies representing the philanthropic support and volunteer labor that help habitat make this all possible,” said Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver CEO Heather Lafferty. “This is a mixed-income, mixed-use development on 17 acres that will provide a healthy stable and vibrant future for so many hardworking people in our community.”
