Home for Humanity

Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) builds simple, decent and affordable homes. PPHFH homes give low-income, first-time homebuyers the opportunity to achieve the dream of homeownership. All PPHFH homes are Energy Star Certified, which creates a more affordable living situation for families.

Features of this home include a solar PV system and a solar domestic hot water system provided by BESTWAY Plumbing-Heating-Solar-Geothermal. The solar PV system is a 3.68kW SunPower® system featuring a SunPower® in-house and web-based monitoring system. The solar domestic hot water system consists of 2-Apricus® AP-20 evacuated tube solar collectors, which absorb energy even when the sun is not shining directly on them, and a SuprerStor stainless steel lifetime warranty solar tank. These elements provide a significant reduction in energy bills and contribute to a more overall energy-efficient home.

Woodmen Vistas is in School District 20 and close to many amenities. Single-car garages, front porches simple design, and a family-friendly neighborhood all contribute to the Woodmen Vistas community.

About the Builder

Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) builds and rehabilitates homes for low-income families in El Paso County in partnership with future homeowners and the community. PPHFH is a nonprofit organization that has been in Colorado Springs since 1986 – celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. PPHFH families meet three criteria: need, willingness to partner, and ability to pay. Families make 25-50 percent of the area median income and could not qualify for a home under traditional means. They contribute 350-450 hours of sweat equity into the construction of their homes, attend credit counseling, and participate in homeowner education workshops. When completed, families receive zero-interest mortgages and 90 percent of the home is built by volunteers. The monthly mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more homes. PPHFH promotes self-sufficiency and works to break the cycle of poverty – one family at a time.
