Colorado House Helper!

We are in need of your support to organize our new shopping space for Partner families at Colorado House, and to keep it sparkling along the way! We are very excited to have this location for families to browse, as it is far more accessible to mothers in the program who need to frequently restock on diapers for babies, food for their family, and hygiene items. Partners in Housing offers all donated items from the community to families in the program for free, and Colorado House Helpers allow for Partner families to "shop" the donations in a dignified manner. 

Partner families are families that are currently enrolled in the Partners in Housing program, and often times are single homeless mothers escaping domestic violence situations. When Partner Families are shopping in Colorado House, you are giving mothers in the Colorado Springs community a chance to rebuild their home and work towards stability, self-reliance, and prosperity.
