The Fort Collins Lions Club built a home for a multiple handicapped family of six. Working in partnership with Habitat for Humanity and two other area Lions Clubs, we began construction February 13, 2002 and finished the two story home in August, 2002; just about six months!

Building Hope… A hand up, not a hand out.
Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity, an ecumenical Christian housing ministry is an affiliate of Habitat International, and has built 40 homes in Fort Collins since its inception in 1993. Habitat builds houses in partnership with families in need, giving them hope to rise above discouraging, ever-increasing housing costs by giving them a home where they can build a life. The strength and foundation of a home can be the hope that transforms the life of a family.
Building Homes… Home ownership opens doors to a new life.
Our mission is to build safe, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with hard-working families in need. This grassroots effort is made possible through the generous donations of materials, money, and labor from members of the Fort Collins community. Habitat provides a 0% interest loan on which Habitat homeowners pay a monthly mortgage payment that does not exceed 30% of their income. Habitat homeowners also save a down payment and contribute up to 500 hours of “sweat equity” in the building of their home and at our Habitat Home Supply Store.
Building Community… One family at a time.
In a grassroots effort, Habitat brings people together from all walks of life and builds community while building hope and homes. Volunteering with Habitat is much more than swinging a hammer. There are jobs for every age and skill level. A heart to help is all that is required.
