Dear Friends and Supporters:
As our beautiful Durango summer is rapidly coming to an end, we are once again gearing up for our annual Labor Day fundraising events. I have attached a link with a video of one of our latest home recipients for your review and a page that will allow donations to be made. The link also displays our numerous sponsors of the events and details of where and when.
Many of you have given in the past and we truly appreciate your generosity.
We hope to see you downtown at one of the events.

If you're still renting and think owning a home is out of your reach, now may be a good time to give some of our amazing local lenders a call.
HomesFund has a great down payment assistance program that can go with many traditional mortgages and allows many people to get into a home with very little money out of pocket. Credit problems? They can help with those too. Make plans to attend their next Homebuyer Education class on June 8th. Of course, I am ready to work for you as well. It doesn't cost you anything to have a Realtor(R) represent you as a buyer, and I'm happy to help guide you through that process.
Give these folks a call and see how they can help you buy a home!

Building Homes for Heroes® (BH4H) is an organization that is an important part of my life. So it is with great excitement that we can once again claim a Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator. This is the highest rating that Charity Navigator can bestow on a non-profit.
The Charity Navigator logo and tag line speak for itself. This organization is truly anyone's guide to intelligent giving and provides transparent information to know exactly where your donations go.
"Founded in 2006, Building Homes for Heroes is strongly committed to rebuilding lives and supporting the brave men and women who were injured while serving the country during the time of the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. The organization builds or modifies homes, and gifts them, mortgage-free, to veterans and their families. These homes not only help to remove the family's financial burden, they help to restore the individual's freedom, and enable the veteran to lead a more independent and productive civilian life. It's our honor to support the men and women who have loyally and courageously served our country."
