Thank you to All Hands Volunteers (AHV) Project Colorado leaders for your passion and dedication. Thank you for the generosity of friends and family who have supported my AHV CO venture either through financial contributions or moral support.

The success of Project CO is the partnership between AHV and Habitat for Humanity (HFH) CO.
