Holiday season campaign helps families with emergency fund for housing

The campaign to raise $75,000 to help people in the Denver area obtain or keep housing during the holiday season runs through the end of the year this month.

The Reach Giving campaign, part of the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI), begins Tuesday and runs through December 31, according to a news release.

The campaign aims to help provide housing to 50 families. MDHI works with over 80 local organizations to provide a one-time emergency fund to families facing a housing crisis, the release said. When all other funding is exhausted, the Housing Stability Fund steps in.

“Without the Housing Stability Fund, hundreds of people in our region would have been rendered homeless or left homeless in the past three years,” Jamie Rif, MDHI’s director of communications, said in the release. “It is literally a fund of last resort when all other avenues have been exhausted by an in-house case manager.”
