Housing Solution’s Transitional Housing program was recently profiled in the Durango Herald. See the story …here.
Housing Solutions partners with the Community Emergency Assistance Coalition (CEAC), which provides homeless prevention and community stability through one-time emergency assistance to individuals and families in La Plata/San Juan Counties who are facing near term financial crisis. La Plata Electric Association’s Round Up Foundation is a partner in this important collaborative program, and any LPEA customer can help support this work by rounding up monthly electric bills. Visit https://www.lpea.coop/programs/roundUpForm.aspx or call 970-247-5786 for more information.
We are very proud to partner with Energy Outreach Colorado again this year. Energy Outreach assists families to keep their homes safe and warm.

Two facts from a recent Durango Herald article: A case of good news/bad news
The Good News: Children from low-income families in La Plata County in Colorado did better financially by their mid-20s than children from low-income families elsewhere. At least from 1996 to 2012…
The Bad News: Median rent in Durango, Colorado jumped from $995 to $1,214 last year. More than a 20% increase…
One has to wonder how the recent spike in rent will impact families and children of low-income families in the future.
