Colorado Health Medical Group and Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity partner to provide a home for a deserving, local family

Colorado Health Medical Group and Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity partner to provide a home for a deserving, local family

This spring, Colorado Health Medical Group (CHMG) and the Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity will swing hammers to build a new home for a deserving Greeley-area family.

As a Platinum Hammer sponsor, CHMG has committed to funding a total home build. A total home sponsorship covers the "bricks and mortar" of the build including construction costs and labor.

In addition, CHMG and University of Colorado Health (UCHealth) employees will strap on their tool belts and volunteer on multiple days to aid in construction.

The new home will be built in Habitat North, a 60-home planned subdivision constructed in 2004 in partnership with Greeley Urban Renewal Authority. The groundbreaking will be in mid-March or early-April with the home dedication and closing in June.

CHMG's support will help a local family understand the joy of owning a safe and stable home while learning the responsibilities that come with it. Safe and stable home environments have been shown to increase school attendance and grades in kids while adults are less likely to miss work.

"We are not only offering homeownership, we are educating families on budgeting, maintenance, insurance and the importance of being an active member of their neighborhood," said Leianne Romero, Executive Director of Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity.

All Habitat for Humanity homes are purchased through interest-free mortgages. Along with other financial requirements, the chosen family has to commit to 500 hours of sweat equity in the home before closing.

As a local medical provider, CHMG is dedicated to its community and feels a strong duty to give back in ways that will improve the health of its residents.

"Greeley Medical Clinic, now a part of Colorado Health Medical Group, has been a fixture in the Greeley community for over 80 years. We enjoy being an integral part of the medical and business community as most of our providers live here and our children go to school here," said Daniel Zenk, MD.

"I am very proud to be part of this organization and proud of our commitment to the Greeley community," said Zenk.
