Brothers Redevelopment is recruiting landlords in 29 counties to rent to residents in transition — those recovering from health problems and leaving rehabilitation. These tenants and Brothers have the backing of one of the state’s strongest safety-net programs, Colorado Choice Transitions, which assists select members of Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program).
Colorado Choice Transitions provides home- and community-based services that enable elderly, blind, physically or developmentally disabled Medicaid clients, as well as some receiving mental health care, to make the transition to independent living after institutional care, such as skilled nursing facilities or long-term and short-term rehabilitation facilities. The Landlords Opening Doors Campaign is a movement of landlords willing to consider the application of a tenant who has recovered from severe health problems and is now able to live on their own.
When the whole community comes together for this kind of effort — landlords, state leaders, families, friends, advocates, counselors, medical and other service providers — deserving Colorado residents can secure the kind of housing that makes lives better and communities stronger.
This integrated approach serves society as a whole by eliminating the high costs of housing people in institutional settings who, with a little help, could be living in traditional housing.
Brothers is seeking landlords interested in being part of this community-wide commitment to high-quality independent living for all Coloradans.
We are also helping other prospective tenants with other types of housing vouchers connect with landlords.
