Habitat for Humanity homes hit by hail

Local

The hail storm on June 13 didn’t stop Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity from dedicating homes to two families in need. 

The presentations took place Saturday morning in Fountain where hundreds of homes were damaged including the exterior of some Habitat for Humanity houses.

You can see baseball-size holes in roofs, sidings, windows, gutters and more.

Habitat is currently working with sub-contractors and insurance company’s to help reduce cost and pay for part of the damage. 

“Inside of the home is fine. There no damage in the inside, so they chose to go ahead and move in and sign the mortgage documents. What Habitat is doing is adding an addendum in their mortgage contract and that we will repair their homes to new again, it may take us a few weeks but the homes will be just fine,” Kris Medina Executive Director of Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity.

Each habitat house is 90 percent volunteer-built making it that much affordable for families.
