Since 2015, the Colorado Roofing Association (CRA) has partnered with Habitat for Humanity (HFH) to provide donated roofing material and labor. The Roof Over Your Head Program connects local roofers who are CRA members with an HFH affiliate in their community.
The CRA now has the 2020 list of HABITAT for HUMANITY homes that are in need of roofs. Projects up & down the front range will be ready to roof throughout the rest of the year, with some up and ready right now!
This is an excellent opportunity to give back to your community while earning your full year’s Continuing Involvement Units at the same time. That’s right! Completing 1 community service project fulfills the necessary 8 CIUs for 2020!
Our partnership with Habitat over the years has been crucial to their mission, providing a hand-up – not a hand-out – for deserving homeowners who participate in the construction of their own new home. Thank you to those of you who’ve participated in the past – we’d love to have you help out again. And to those who haven’t helped with a Habitat project yet, maybe this is your year! A huge thank you also to GAF and their amazing partnership with Habitat for Humanity, as well as our other generous member suppliers & manufacturers who have provided deliveries & materials when needed.
We are looking for roofing contractors to donate their time and labor in 2020. Habitat houses are new construction projects, typically with simple roof lines ranging between 13-22 squares. No tear-offs or permits are involved (with a few exceptions), making the process clean and straightforward. Both GAF & Certainteed have their own partnerships with Habitat for Humanity, which allows for a simple material access process as well! If you’re interested in helping out with a project, we can work together to pick a location & time frame that works for your company. We'd like to get the list of 2020 homes all assigned as soon as possible even if the house won’t be ready until later in the year.
Let's do this together! The benefits that a safe, DRY and affordable shelter can have on families and communities who partner with Habitat for Humanity can be long-lasting and life-changing. Together, we can help a family! Interested parties should contact: Amy Hawkins, H4H Coordinator CRA Community Service Committee email@example.com
