Shea Homes Breaks Ground on the 2023 Inspiration House in The Canyons at Castle Pines

On May 25th, ground was officially broken on the 2023 Inspiration House. Shea Homes is the partnering builder for this year’s Inspiration House, which is located on a corner lot with beautiful mountain views in The Canyons at Castle Pines. This is the ninth Inspiration House undertaken since the program began in 2003. The previous eight homes have together raised more than $1 million, which has helped HBF complete home modifications to increase safety and independence for nearly 2,000 individuals.

Each Inspiration House is a collaboration between the partnering home builder and its trades. The participating trade partners commit to donating or discounting materials, labor or supplies and the home builder contributes a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the home. The 2023 Inspiration House is off to a great start with commitments already received from nearly 30 trade partners.

During the groundbreaking ceremony, HBF client Frank C. shared the importance of the work done by HBF. Frank, a father of five and former high school basketball coach, was diagnosed with Inclusion Body Myositis in early 2021. This rare inflammatory disease causes progressive muscle weakness. After moving to a more accessible home, Frank realized that additional modifications were necessary to accommodate his power wheelchair. He contacted HBF, which upgraded his ramp and installed additional features to enhance Frank’s independence and safety. According to Frank, these modifications were life changing. “While it may seem like a small thing to have a pull bar or automatic door opener, it makes a huge difference to someone in a wheelchair who has limited use of his hands,” explained Frank. He praised the compassion and professionalism of HBF staff and the contractors who completed the work and thanked the nonprofit for easing his family’s caregiving burden.  Due to his increased independence, Frank is now assisting the local high school girls’ basketball program as an assistant coach.

The Inspiration House is a key fundraising initiative for HBF, which has seen an unprecedented increase in requests for home modification.  In recent months, HBF has received double the number of applications that it typically receives. The donation that HBF receives from the 2023 Inspiration House will be announced at a ribbon-cutting ceremony when the house is completed in late fall.
