Las-Casas-Phase-II

 

Habitat for Humanity of Teller County is proud to announce they will proceed with ground
breaking on Phase II of Project Las Casas at 850 Forest Edge in Woodland Park, CO on July
12, 2013 at 11:00 am. This project will provide much needed affordable housing for 3 families in
Teller County.

Since 2000, Habitat for Humanity of Teller County has provided 24 homes to families in need
throughout the county. Habitat for Humanity of Teller County is an affiliate of Habitat for
Humanity International. Habitat builds safe, decent homes in partnership with qualified families
and assists these families with the skills necessary to become successful homeowners.

This incredible project will:

  • Take 9-12 months to complete
  • Require thousands of volunteer man hours to complete
  • Require each family to put in 300 to 400 hours of “sweat equity” to qualify
  • Cost $450,000

Paul Summeril of Home Pro Services in Woodland Park will serve as the Site Supervisor for the
project. “God has gifted me to build not just houses but people. I believe that Habitat is a part of
that. I have lived in a tent trailer with my trailer of 5 and have personally received help to own a
new home. I want to give my building experience back to do the same for other families”

Sally Riley will be on hand representing the City of Woodland Park as we break ground on this
exciting new project. Also attending will be City council members Bob Carlsen and John
Schafer.

Interviews with participating families will be possible the day of the groundbreaking.
