My husband and I struggle every winter; I’m a homemaker and he is a seasonal worker. In the winter money is so tight we can barely pay our mortgage.

The rapid growth across the Metro Denver region has greatly impacted low-income communities and communities of color. Many low-income families across the region struggle to pay their mortgage or rent every month. After paying for housing costs, there is little left for other essentials like food or childcare.
