Loveland Habitat is one of more than 230 Habitat for Humanity affiliates awarded a grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation as part of its nationwide initiative to help low to moderate income families to build and improve their homes across the US.
At least one in seven households in Colorado spend over half of their income on housing and the number of Loveland families who are struggling to afford rent is on the rise. This results in individuals and families having to choose between having a safe place to live, reliable transportation, nutritious food, educational opportunities, and quality healthcare.
This funding is part of a $7.75 million donation to Habitat for Humanity International through the Wells Fargo Builds program to support the construction, renovation and repairing of more than 350 affordable homes across the U.S.
Habitat for Humanity and Wells Fargo have collaborated for nearly three decades, sharing a vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Since 2010, Wells Fargo has funded new home construction and critical home repairs, including providing support for older adults and veterans, and supported neighborhood revitalization and disaster response.
Through the years, Wells Fargo employees have put on hard hats and picked up hammers to build alongside homeowners as they make their dreams of having a safe, decent and affordable home come true. Together, Habitat and Wells Fargo are committed to helping even more families gain greater access to affordable homes — and a brighter future.
Below are photos of the Wells Fargo team at our construction site over the years. We’re looking forward to having them out again this year!
