Housing Equity Campaign
The Housing Equity Campaign was born at the end of 2020 from our work over the last four years to address housing injustices in Colorado. The Housing Equity Campaign promotes development of affordable housing on faith-owned land, supports innovative solutions to homelessness and advocates for policies that advance equality of opportunity in housing.
There are over 5,000 undeveloped acres of congregation-owned land in metro Denver alone. We work with congregations and nonprofits to provide technical assistance in order to activate these sites for affordable housing statewide.
We provide technical assistance, community engagement, and advocacy around the adoption of Safe Outdoor Spaces (SOS) in Denver and beyond. SOS is a CDC-approved model to provide sanctioned and staffed camping programs for those living outside.
Policy & Advocacy
We work at the local and state level to support policy changes that address the need for affordable housing, increase renter protections and provide safer alternatives for those living on the streets.
