Brothers Redevelopment honors champions in housing at Colorado Springs celebration

Awards Brothers Redevelopment distributed at our Champions in Housing event in Colorado Springs. The awards were given to those who have helped us serve thousands of clients over the years in the Pikes Peak area.

Colorado Springs holds a special place in Brothers Redevelopment’s heart and mission of providing and preserving affordable housing.

That’s why Brothers on July 20 hosted a special celebration at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center to highlight our work and recognize the Pikes Peak area’s “Champions in Housing” who have helped us serve thousands of clients over the past decade.

Our work in the state’s second largest city began in 2014, when the state asked Brothers to help renters find affordable housing. Soon after, the agency began offering housing counseling services — including assisting homebuyers in evaluating their readiness for a home purchase and navigating the homebuying process, offering financial literacy training, and providing foreclosure prevention counseling. Through the years, our range of services in Colorado Springs has grown to now offer home modifications and repairs, our Paint-A-Thon Program, housing navigation, financial assistance for rent/mortgages, and other resources to help older adults age in place.

These services are needed and sought after in Colorado Springs. That’s evident by the nearly 14,000 households we’ve served in El Paso County and the tens of thousands of dollars we’ve provided in rental assistance to residents in the county. But all this work isn’t possible without strong partnerships and dedication from our staff and others who share our vision that everyone deserves a safe, decent place to live.

Honorees at the Champions in Housing event included:

– Colorado Springs Mayor Yemi Mobolade

– Paul Morrow; Community Development, City of Colorado Springs

– KT Leonard; KT Leonard Construction

– Kate Hatten; Home Front Military Network

– Mike Sullivan; ERA Shields Real Estate

– Crystal LaTier; Economic Development, EL Paso County

– Beth Hall Roalstad; Homeward Pikes Peak

– Mary Stegner; Partners in Housing

– El Pomar Foundation

“Our partners and honorees exemplify the spirit of compassion and innovation, and together, we continue to build a future where safe, decent housing is a reality for all. This event celebrates not just our achievements, but the power of community-driven initiatives that uplift and empower residents of Colorado Springs,” said Brothers President Jeff Martinez. “We are truly inspired by the strides we’ve made together and remain committed to our mission of providing and preserving quality housing for those who need it most.”

 

In addition, Brothers’ housing helpline Colorado Housing Connects (1-844-926-6632) has regularly offered a variety of free housing classes like eviction prevention webinars, homebuyer education workshops, and affordable housing seminars in Colorado Springs this past year. Meanwhile, Brothers Property Management —a wholly owned subsidiary of Brothers — recently assumed property management responsibilities for Greenway Flats — a permanent living space for chronically homeless men and women in the city.
