The Door Project
In the state of Colorado most households spend more the 50% of their monthly income on housing. Straining most families to purchase the necessities such as utilities, health care, and groceries, or even forcing them to be with out a home.
Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County is teaming up with local artist for our annual Door Project.
An open door often symbolizes new beginnings and an open view to what lies ahead. Each door displays amazing art and talent that will be up for bid where the proceeds go towards helping a family achieve affordable housing in Mesa County.
Every Little Bit Helps
It goes beyond the doors. Mesa County is facing a housing crisis. The median rent has gone up over 35% in the last year. Making most of these renter households cost burdened and struggling to make ends meet.
