This is an update to my previous post: New Habitat for Humanity Neighborhood at N. Powers Blvd. and E. Woodmen Rd. (Colorado Springs, CO).
Today, while running a few business related errands with my youngest son, he fell asleep. So, I decided that this would be a great time to drive by the proposed Woodmen Vistas to get a visual of where this new neighborhood would actually be. Of course, it is still only one very large mound of dirt.
On my way home, I decided to call Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) and find out ALL the details surrounding this new neighborhood in NE Colorado Springs. I spoke with Aimee Liotino – Volunteer Coordinator. I told her that I was interested in learning more about the new Woodmen Vistas neighborhood and she suggested that I speak with Paul Johnson – the Executive Director for the Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity. Since he was in a meeting, she took down my information so that he could call me back when he had some time to answer my myriad of questions. Aimee was one of the friendliest people I have spoken with over-the-phone in a long time. How refreshing. (If you are interested in volunteering for the PPHFH, she would be the one to talk to: 719-475-7800)
Within the hour I received a call from Paul Johnson. He was able to effectively and comprehensively answer all of my questions regarding the Woodmen Vistas and PPHFH in general.
