The Denver Alliance for Interfaith Action (DAIA) was founded by Trinity in 2002. DAIA and Habitat on the Hill merged in December 2006 to become Habitat Interfaith Alliance (HIA).
HIA is a coalition of dedicated souls who bring together people of Protestant, Jewish, Catholic and Unitarian Universalist faiths to do God's work as a team. HIA is made up of representatives from 14 congregations in the Metro Denver area. With the help of our fellow congregants, we reach our yearly goal, which is to raise the money to sponsor one Habitat home in Denver and one in a developing country (via Habitat's Tithe Program). Our Alliance believes in addressing long-term poverty and helping all families achieve affordable housing. A safe and affordable home allows so many families to grow, dream and plan for a brighter future. We are a proud Faith-Partner affiliate with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver.
We rely on our four main fundraisers (Soup Cook-Off, Books for Bricks, Golf Classic, Pumpkin Patch) and donations from our congregations to achieve the $85,000 needed annually to reach this goal. Eighty thousand dollars is the actual cost of the building materials for the home in Denver; however, each home costs about $170,000 to build in total (land, permits, inspections, build supervisor salaries). Our commitment to the tithe program is $5,000, and we get to select the country where this home is built each year.
Please join us in this exciting mission by picking up a hammer and volunteering at the build site, helping us raise funds and keeping the project in your prayers. Together we can build homes, families and a better community for us all. Learn more at www.hiadenver.org.
