Legislative Build Day
A volunteering campaign for Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley.
About This Campaign
The Basalt Vista Housing Community is an extraordinary collaboration with the Roaring Fork School District, Pitkin County and the Town of Basalt to build the Basalt Vista Housing Partnership—located behind Basalt High School—which will provide 27 affordable NET ZERO homes for teachers and others in our local workforce.
Through this effort, we hope to create a model that can be adopted in communities throughout Colorado and across the country.

Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley
Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley partners with local families who otherwise would not be able to afford a home of their own, through conventional means. We build homes in partnership with local families in need of a hand-up, not a hand-out. The wide gap between our high resort area cost of living (especially for housing) and the actual rural community wages makes it difficult to retain teachers, and essential personnel within our area- all who hold jobs that are key to the well being of our children and community, but cannot afford to live close to where they work.
