    Self-Help Building Housing Program

    Uniquely designed to help people help themselves, Self-Help Housing is a “sweat equity” program through Housing Resources of Western Colorado (HRWC), that gives income qualified families the means to construct their own homes. Families who participate perform approximately 65% of the construction labor, under qualified supervision, on each other’s homes. The labor that families contribute substantially reduces the cost of each home while also building equity. Participants in the program must be willing to contribute a minimum of 30 hours per week for approximately 8 to 12 months. Family and friends can contribute up to 15 hours per week which can count towards the 30 hours.

Families or individuals receiving TANF, AND, SSI, LEAP and SNAP automatically qualify.
