Colorado Housing and Finance Authority’s (CHFA) annual David W. Herlinger Golf Tournament raised $85,000 for Home Builders Foundation on Wednesday, July 19. Home Builders Foundation (HBF) is a nonprofit organization based in Englewood whose mission is to build independence, provide opportunities, and elevate lives for individuals and families with disabilities.
Each year, HBF gathers builders, contractors, remodelers, tradespeople, and volunteers for its annual Blitz Build to complete home modification projects across greater Denver.
“CHFA began volunteering with HBF’s Blitz Build eight years ago, and we are so grateful for the many ramps they have built throughout the Denver metro area,” said Beth Forbes, Home Builders Foundation executive director. “HBF is also tremendously thankful for being chosen as the beneficiary of CHFA’s 2023 David W. Herlinger Golf Tournament which marks an accumulation of the many years of synergy between our organizations. We are excited to be a part of the day and truly humbled to receive this recognition.”
For 30 years, the Home Builders Foundation has enabled individuals with disabilities and their families to live more independent, elevated lives. HBF has completed home modifications including ramps, room alterations, bathrooms, and much more for over 2000 individuals and their families, and the number of requests continues to grow. HBF expects to complete 240 projects for 120 individuals in 2023.
“The work of Home Builders Foundation aligns with CHFA’s vision that everyone in Colorado will have the opportunity for housing stability and economic prosperity,” said Cris White, CHFA executive director and CEO. “Home Builders Foundation is serving a critical need as they ensure that those with disabilities have access to modifications that allow them to continue to live safely and comfortably in their homes. CHFA is proud to support Home Builders Foundation in their ongoing impact on the community.”
