Nominated as one of the 2016 Nonprofit Organization of the Year
AT HOME in Evergreen, a Colorado non-profit organization, was created to help bring to fruition the dreams of a group of concerned citizens who realized that there is a very real need in the Evergreen area for affordable housing for the local workforce. It is the dream of this organization to provide local housing for members of the local workforce who cannot at present afford to live in Evergreen, and thus cannot fully invest themselves in the community.
“Workforce housing” means housing for people who would like to live closer to their jobs but have trouble finding housing they can afford. Providing affordable housing options closer to jobs means that workers don’t have to commute long distances from housing they can afford. That helps employers avoid losing trained, experienced employees who decide to look for a job closer to home.
Opening minds and hearts to the need for affordable housing in Evergreen, Colorado.
