Kennison Family Home Build Day

About This Campaign

Welcome Habitat for Humanity’s Newest Basalt Vista Partner Family:
TC, Ashley & Trevor Kennison

The tale of this family starts in the town of Avon, Colorado in 2014 where Ashley and TC met and had a blossoming relationship. Shortly after they started dating, Trevor, Ashley's brother, had his accident on Vail pass and ended up moving back east. Fiery passions for the snow led them to the mountains and when it was clear Trevor could excel at sit skiing; they moved to the Roaring Fork Valley. They love delicious food, good company, and the simplicity of mountain life but definitely do not shy away from traveling.

The Kennison family is excited to become Habitat homeowners in the community they love and already call home- Basalt! This will be Basalt Vistas first ADA home where Trevor's life will become easier, safer and much more comfortable.

Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley

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. 


Our local Habitat has been building homes with lower income families for almost 20 years,  but we have become increasingly aware of the acute need for housing for the middle income workers who provide vital services to our community.  This is what brought about 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 homes.  

Habitat for Humanity is a movement of people who build more than houses. By bringing homeowners together with volunteers, donors, community leaders, foundations, and other supporters building stable families, safe neighborhoods, and caring communities.
