The Home Builders Foundation (HBF) recently announced the re-launch of its fundraising campaign, Inspiration House. The philanthropic initiative strives to elevate the lives of disabled individuals by creating home modifications that empower access, reinforce safety and equip recipients with the ability to tackle everyday tasks.
The HBF partnered up with Thrive Home Builders to donate a portion of their proceeds to home modifications for the disabled. This year, Thrive Home Builders and 15 of their trade partners have volunteered to support HBF’s mission, and have begun building a home in the Stapleton community.
“For more than 25 years, we have been making the dream of owning a home a reality for families in Metro Denver and beyond,” said Thrive Home Builders’ CEO and Founder, Gene Myers. “We are delighted to be part of the re-launch of the Inspiration House initiative and partnering with our trades, as well as the Home Builders Foundation, to make a difference in the lives of families living with disabilities in our community.”
The Inspiration House project was initially implemented five years before the economic downturn. This year, the project has been reinstated to help raise the critical funds needed to fulfill HBF’s mission of building independence and elevating lives. 15 of Thrive’s trade partners volunteered to support this effort and include:
- 4M Connection
- Arlun, Incorporated
- Artistic Caulking Inc.
- Cowboy Stucco
- EnergyLogic, Inc.
- Front Range Windows and Door, Inc.
- G&C Construction Inc.
- Jeffrey Cohen dba Quality Wood Repair
- Lou's Premium Painting, LLC • Pure Green Landscaping LLC. • Sitewise, LLC
- South Valley Drywall, Inc.
- Specialty Appliance, Inc • Steel T Heating, Inc.
- Van Dyk Construction
“The HBF is elated to restart the Inspiration House program and to partner with Thrive Home Builders and their trade base to raise critical funds for our program,” stated HBF Executive Director, Beth Forbes. “We are grateful for Thrive’s leadership on this initiative and look forward to the great community impact it will provide.”
HBF has seen a significant rise in demand as more people with long term physical disabilities are requesting services. Since the last Inspiration House in 2007, the HBF has increased the number of home modifications from 39 projects annually to more than 120 recipients in 2019.
The Stapleton Inspiration House is scheduled to be completed by December 2019. To learn more about HBF and to follow their progress, please visit HBFDenver.org.
