Mission & History
Creating a world in which everyone has a decent, affordable place to live.
Seeking to put God's love into action, 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 forty homes since our inception. Our current homes are being built in Evergreen and Empire, with additional lots in Idaho Springs..
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, preschool teachers and others.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
