Our community is a better place because of Connect First, and we are honored by their partnership with us!

Connect First teamed up with Flatirons Habitat for Humanity on Friday to help build three houses in northern Boulder. Roughly half of the company took the day off from work to help Flatirons Habitat build homes.

“Helping Habitat build houses was one of the biggest highlights of the entire year for us as a company,” said Dan Candee, Connect First COO. “Working with Habitat is something that is so much bigger than business, and I speak on behalf of everyone in Connect First when I say that we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to help out an organization that does such great things for the Front Range community.”

The Connect First team worked predominately on the infrastructure of the homes, cutting out and hanging drywall. The homes are expected to be completed by the end of August.

“Flatirons Habitat for Humanity counts our new partnership with Connect First among our most valuable assets,” said Catherine Ballance, Director of Development for Flatirons Habitat. “The financial investment of Connect First in our vital work of serving hardworking families with the stability of safe, decent and affordable homeownership is outstanding. The investment of the employees in giving their time to volunteer on our construction site is priceless. Their hard work and the positive, can-do spirit the team brings, make it clear to us why they have been named as a 2014 Colorado Companies to Watch. Our community is a better place because of Connect First, and we are honored by their partnership with us!”
