Trinity welcomes veteran journalist and award-winning author Donna Bryson
As the annual Point-in-Time Survey revealed 5,755 people living in shelters or on the streets in the seven-county metro region (up from 5,317 in 2018 and 5,116 in 2017) it was announced a new $82 million a year will be pumped into affordable housing for a few years.
News headlines on the housing affordability crises nationwide are almost daily in metro Denver. In April Denver’s city auditor reported to have found that local government’s efforts to fight against homelessness has had a “lack of cohesive overall strategy.” A resounding need to create and sustain housing for all was common in community gatherings with city council and mayoral contenders in this year’s local elections leading to a new Department of Housing Stability. The question now is how to create enough housing solutions considering the challenges of land and constructions costs along with other symptoms of rapid growth and a shortage of diverse housing construction since the recession of 2008.
