Empty Stocking Fund: Partners in Housing
Partners in Housing not only helps its clients to obtain stable housing, but its year-long self-sufficiency program helps transform lives for the better.
For 30 years, Partners in Housing has helped Colorado Springs families in a housing crisis — currently homeless, on the verge of homelessness or fleeing domestic violence — move toward stability, self-reliance and prosperity.
“Families come to us in whatever circumstance has fallen upon them — housing is always at the center of that crisis,” Executive Director Mary Stegner said. “They’ve either been evicted or they’re going to be evicted, they’re fleeing domestic violence, they’re living somewhere that’s not suitable or sometimes in their cars. Then they come into our program for a year where we work with them on whatever it was that went wrong.”
The Empty Stocking Fund benefits 20 health and human service agencies in the Pikes Peak region who serve over 350,000 neighbors in need from birth to end of life, including Partners in Housing.
