Housing Solutions was formed in 1981 and first operating under the name Southwest Community Resources. Today we operate multiple programs, all housing related, to help people in Southwest Colorado who are struggling to meet their basic housing needs. We work in Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma, and San Juan Counties.
Housing Solutions is dedicated to finding affordable housing options for the communities we serve.
Programs include rental assistance voucher program, transitional living programs, emergency homeless prevention, housing counseling for qualifying individuals or families. We are the only HUD certified counseling agency that assists people with mortgage modification and foreclosure prevention. Also, we have multiple programs for people of different income levels including homebuyer and credit counseling, weatherization services and housing rehabilitation. Depending on income, these services may be at no cost or be through a low-interest loan.
