Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity is the local foothills affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. We serve the mountain areas of western Jefferson County, Clear Creek County and parts of Park County up to Kenosha Pass and assist low-income families building and buying their own homes.
We are a locally run organization started by twelve volunteers in Evergreen in 1990. Today Blue Spruce has hundreds of volunteers who contribute thousands of hours a year. Like all Habitat affiliates, Blue Spruce is a locally based organization that depends on local funding and volunteers to build our homes. We also operate our Habitat ReStore in Bergen Park to help fund our program.
We have built 42 homes since our inception. Our current homes are being built in Evergreen and Empire, with additional lots in Idaho Springs and Conifer.
All Habitat homeowners are local residents, living, working, attending church and having children in school here in our mountain community. They include day care providers, school bus drivers, wait persons, housekeepers, carpenters, hospice aides, teachers and others.
