EVERY COLORADAN DESERVES AFFORDABLE HOUSING.
More than 50% of rental households in the seven-county Metro Denver area are rent-burdened, meaning they spend more than 30% of their monthly income on rent. Mile High United Way believes everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home. We expand access to affordable housing options by connecting individuals and families to housing vouchers, rental assistance, and more.
