Jessica Montur and her daughter Sierra have a life in Rifle — Jessica works at the Journey Home Animal Care Center and Sierra goes to preschool. But they don’t yet have a home in Rifle.
That will soon change with the completion of Wapiti Commons, a Habitat for Humanity project.
“We’re excited to finally get in here and be a part of the community,” Montur said.
Habitat is building homes in Rifle near their office on Smith Street, on land donated in October 2020 by Paul Adams and Clay Crossland. Habitat President Gail Schwartz said she is excited about finishing the duplex type houses soon.
“There are so many aspects of this that are nothing short of amazing, especially working with someone like Jess. That’s the beauty of this neighborhood coming together, they’re all working on each other’s homes, so it’s pretty exciting,” she said.
