Our Community Investments ~ 2017:

Trades N Training Program

The Trades N Training program offers students the opportunity to gain experience and certification in a variety of construction related trades such as carpentry, plumbing, and electrical.  This program will not only assist our industry in providing a skilled workforce, but we will also be providing our youth career opportunities that they may not otherwise have access to. 
This program is being piloted in Durango and Bayfield High Schools.

Building for the Future Scholarship

The HBASC, in the last two years, has donated $10,000 to the Building for the Future Scholarship  program.  These scholarships support students graduating from local High Schools, desiring post-secondary education in any aspect of the construction industry.  The receipients will demonstrate a good work ethic, strong interest in pursuing a career in building construction or design, and willingness to learn.

The scholarship funding is made possible by ticket sales from the Parade of Homes.

Southwest Safehouse & Durango Community Shelter Projects

37 skilled volunteers came together for two days in December 2016 to help with basic maintenance and renovations. Every single room was painted, all necessary roof repairs were made (including the installation of new gutters) new closet doors were installed, along with new toilets and shelves to replace the filing cabinet that had been serving as the linen closet.
The HBASC convened for an additional week of work in April 2017 to complete the more major structural repairs.  By the time the week was over, the HBASC had answered the call for assistance with 19 business & 15 independent volunteers contributing over 33 hours of labor, plus significant materials & installation costs. 
Renovations of the Durango Community Shelter have been funded and work will commence early in 2018.
