New Douglas County program assists with housing resources

County partners with Housing Counseling Assistance Program

Posted

The Douglas County Housing Partnership is participating in a new program helping Coloradans gain access to local housing resources, including financial assistance and legal services.

The Housing Counseling Assistance Program, organized by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, the Colorado Division of Housing and Brothers Redevelopment, a Denver nonprofit providing housing and housing-related services to low-income, elderly and disabled residents, launched in October.

Residents can call the state's centralized housing helpline, Colorado Housing Connects, at 1-844-926-6632, to be connected to local housing resources like legal services, financial assistance and long-term solutions for sustainable housing solutions. The program aims to prevent foreclosures.

Residents can also access housing counseling services through Brothers Redevelopment.

The program is funded by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs. The service is free to residents and operated through Colorado Housing Connects, a free, centralized helpline run by Brothers Redevelopment that helps residents navigate through nonemergency housing services and resources.

Other partners include Boulder County, the Douglas County Housing Partnership, NEWSED, Denver's Southwest Improvement council and others.

“Renters and homeowners in crisis often don't know where the first place to start might be. As the state's sole centralized housing resource, Colorado Housing Connects is a great first place to start to connect you with the resources to help with eviction and foreclosure prevention in the spirit of keeping people housed,” Colorado Housing Connects Manager Patrick Noonan said.
