What is HYP?

Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) is a diverse group of young professionals who share resources, time and talents to make a difference in the Denver community.

HYP is about having fun and making personal and professional connections throughout Denver, while helping to give hardworking, low-income metro Denver families a chance to finally own a home.

We are a high-energy, motivated group which is committed to volunteering, donating, and spreading the word to our friends and colleagues about Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver.

Work hard… Pick up a hammer and help out a neighbor.

HYP members will have many opportunities to serve together. For everyone who has said, I always wanted to build with Habitat – here’s your chance. Contributing time and sweat building homes alongside Habitat families in Denver is a unique and fun experience which allows members to see firsthand the permanent impact they are having in their community.

Members are also encouraged to share their experiences with their friends and invite them to join in the fun by becoming HYP members. At Habitat, we say BUILD LOUDER and hope that members will become megaphones… advocating for a community where everyone has a safe, affordable place to call home.

Play hard… All work and no play makes no sense!

HYP members will enjoy many opportunities to network and meet like-minded young professionals in the community. Member’s only events will consist of happy hours, sporting events, networking dinners and other HYP events with partners throughout the community.

Give back… Money makes the world go ’round.

It costs Habitat Metro Denver an average of $162,000 to build a Habitat home in metro Denver. As a HYP member, your $20 monthly donation will go directly to cover the costs of the materials to build a home for a low-income family in our community. Your donation is tax deductible and allows for you to help build it with both your time and your wallet.

Join today and help us reach our goal of funding half a house each year. We promise that you’ll know exactly how your money is being spent and you’ll gain great benefits such as special members only events and Habitat schwag as a thank you.
