CONTRIBUTED BY HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF METRO DENVER
Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver and Giveback Homes partnered with Homebot for a build day Saturday, June 27 at Swansea Homes, located at E 44th Ave & Columbine St in Denver.
Homebot is supporting the project with funds they won from a real estate technology competition.
More than 20 real estate professionals from Homebot will volunteer to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity program recipients.
“We’re thrilled to have Homebot step up and prioritize their winnings to support affordable housing in their community and host an impactful team building day for their employees,” Giveback Homes Cofounder Caroline Pinal said.
Habitat for Humanity is building 32 homes in the Elyria Swansea neighborhood. These houses, consisting of 3 and 4 bedroom duplexes, will take the collective work of more than 15,000 volunteers, and be the future home of more than 144 adults and children.
One of the families benefiting from this home day is the Pasillas family. Parents to two young children, Jesus works as a full-time contractor and Estibali is a teacher’s aide.
“This home is so important to us,” said Jesus Pasillas. “We will be able to take care of our own home, have more financial stability, and give our kids the individualized attention they need.”
The family currently live in overcrowded conditions with extended family and are ready for their own home.
“We are honored to work with Caroline and Giveback Homes on this build day,” Homebot CEO and Cofounder Ernie Graham said. “Giveback Homes and Habitat for Humanity has inspired us to give back to our community, and we hope our efforts provide comfort to families who are struggling to find affordable housing in Central Colorado.”
This marks the first build day with Homebot, the fifth build day with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, and the 82nd build day for Giveback Homes.
