Habitat Metro Denver Annual Report
July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022
Tyler Watlington joined the ReStores as a volunteer in 2019 during a time of transition in her life. And what started as a desire to volunteer quickly turned into a commitment – and a community. Tyler can often been seen monitoring the floor, supporting customers and sorting inventory at the Denver ReStore. “It’s just joy. It’s therapeutic,” Tyler says of her service as a Core Volunteer at the ReStore. “The team doesn’t take themselves too seriously – but just seriously enough to get the job done. And they play good music!”
After a difficult series of illnesses and surgeries in 2021, Arvada resident Jane was focused on taking care of her own health. Unfortunately, her home was simultaneously in need of updates.
After receiving care from CVNA nurses through the CAPABLE program, the Habitat Metro Denver home repair team spent several months repairing Jane’s flooring, installing a new kitchen sink, replacing cabinets and installing three new windows. Most importantly, they developed deep friendships.
