Supporting Colorado Springs Families for 30 Years
While 2020 brought many unexpected changes, 2021 brings a wonderful celebration for Partners in Housing as we recognize our 30th anniversary of assisting families in need, in the Pikes Peak Region.
Looking back at Partners in Housing historic organizational documents, we were reminded of the hard work leading up to the formation of Partners in Housing. In the late 1980s, a group of community leaders began researching local needs, and programs in other communities, supporting families who were experiencing homelessness. Among this group were Bishop Richard Hanifen of the Diocese of Colorado Springs and the Executive Director of Catholic Community Services, Sr Lucille Kripple.
Partners in Housing was then started as a program of Catholic Community Services, but quickly was incorporated as a separate, but connected, nonprofit in November 1991. The original mission statement when formed: Partners in Housing is to provide safe transitional housing for families with children who are homeless or soon to be homeless. The Board of Directors and staff of Partners in Housing have made changes to the mission statement a few times over our 30 years, but the core message remains the same. Our current mission statement: Partners in Housing guides families in housing crisis from insecurity to stability, self-reliance and prosperity maintains our ultimate goal of assisting families with children to have stable, safe housing and the knowledge and resources to move forward.
