One of my current roles is as an Advisory Board Member to Elevated Denver, a new nonprofit in Denver dedicated to finding new solutions to our homelessness crisis. We are focused on humanizing the issue and testing new solutions driven by diverse stakeholders and our homeless neighbors. We are working on Season 2 of the podcast, where you can hear from our unhoused neighbors and local experts, as well as hear about bright spots in the system of support. We are also doing research to understand how clients engage with and move through the system, what needs are and are not being met, and where they are getting stuck. Together these will help inform new solutions. The end goal is a more effective and responsive system that meets peoples’ needs so they can move into stable housing more efficiently.
I believe in this work and I hope you will consider supporting Elevated Denver for Colorado Gives Day: https://www.coloradogives.org/story/Elevateden.
