Basalt Vista Affordable Housing Community

Basalt Vista Affordable Housing Community

About This Campaign

The Basalt Vista Housing Community's goal is to provide affordable homeownership opportunities.

The wide gap between our high resort area cost of living (especially for housing) and actual wages makes it difficult to recruit and retain teachers, and essential personnel within our community—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.

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

This need 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 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.

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.
