On Wednesday, November 17th, a large group, cheered as Jeff McGovern, Colorado division president for Brookfield Residential, and Beth Forbes, HBF Executive Director, grasped the handles of a large pair of scissors and snipped a ribbon adorning the front of a new home in the Barefoot Lakes subdivision. The excited crowd included past client, Michael Solano, Inspiration House trade partners and the new homeowners. The climax of the ribbon cutting ceremony, was McGovern presenting HBF with a check for $123,000.00 one of the largest donations in the program’s history.
This is the seventh Inspiration House to be completed since the program’s initiation in 2003. The Inspiration House is a fundraising initiative in which a Denver home builder and its trade base collaborate to raise funds through the sale of a newly constructed home.

“Forbes shared with the crowd the huge impact the donation made possible by the Inspiration House would have for HBF, noting that the demand for home modifications – which are provided by the nonprofit to clients free of charge – continues to increase. Forbes thanked everyone who participated for, “Enabling us to help even more people live independently in their homes by providing greater access, reinforcing safety and equipping our clients with the ability to tackle everyday tasks.”
