Homeless & Housing, Economic Development
2543 California Street
In 1980, a task force of citizens concerned with the lack of affordable housing for people with low incomes joined together to form Hope Communities. While working on developments in the Five Points area, it became apparent that liveable housing wasn't the only thing the community needed. At the request of the neighborhood, Hope Communities initiated a tutoring program for adults in 1987. The program's overwhelming success led to the creation of personal/career development workshops as well as a Community Building program whereby residents work together to resolve neighborhood issues.
Hope Communities continues to develop affordable housing units throughout the Denver area and to offer an increasing number of workshops and education programs. We are devoted to providing the resources people need to improve their lives and community.
