Grab some work boots and bundle up – we’re building a house. A house that will make a difference.
Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver is a homeownership program for hard-working, low-income families in need of safe and affordable homes. They give people a “hand up” not a handout because they believe everyone deserves a decent place to live.
Homes are built completely through volunteers so they are affordable for the program applicants. The selected families will contribute 250 hours of labor on their own home and the homes of other Habitat families. It’s a program that works.
Join Sweetlife Adventures for a day of building on the construction site. No experience is necessary. You will play a vital role in the project, working side by side with other volunteers making a difference in the community.

Here’s what a few sweet guests have to say about this empowering adventure:
“Thank you so much for putting this trip together. It was spectacular. So many nice women, great leaders, good food….everything was awesome.”
“What an amazing adventure!…I have never done anything remotely like that before, and I felt such a sense of accomplishment. I remember thinking at one point along the trail on the brutally cold and windy journey back on Sunday, ‘If I saw someone on TV doing this, I would think I would NEVER do that! But here I am, doing it!’…Thanks again for an incredible experience and for taking me on another “sweet” adventure! And thanks for the awesome pics and videos. Great memories!
“I am full of gratitude for the beautiful weather and beautiful environment I was able to experience.”

There is much (needed) talk around gun control and how best to have a society living in safety and peace.
It is with great respect for all perspectives that we offer our Target Shooting & Safety adventure, taught with excellence by a team of former Navy SEALs and other elite Special Operations Forces.
This evening adventure provides education, understanding, and appreciation on many levels through instruction provided by highly trained members of the U.S. Military’s Special Operations Forces. You will leave feeling informed and empowered.
Your mission is to join a team of expert instructors for an exclusive private lesson in target shooting and safety. This once in a lifetime experience will include weapon safety and handling, crucial self defense tips, and empowering target practice at an indoor shooting range.
All gear and safety equipment is included.
“I HAVE to tell you….how much I loved the target lesson today. I feel so ….empowered! I have always considered myself a gun-hater, yet a tiny bit intrigued about guns. I have never shot a gun and today was my first time having a gun in my hand. After this lesson, I feel that I have a small understanding on how the gun works. Its not just a Man lovers piece of iron.”
“Such a unique experience. I knew I would try to drop it into every conversation I had this week and I have. “Did you say you are shopping for oven ranges? I was actually at a shooting range this week and…”
