Unison Housing Partners is empowering people and strengthening communities in Adams County.

We are focused on ending generational poverty by providing people with affordable homes, wrap-around supports, and by being a leader in socially conscious development.



Last year was a year of change and growth for Unison Housing Partners. We went through a rebranding process, neared completion of the Alto multi-use development that includes 70 homes for low-income families and our permanent offices, and staff worked out of a temporary location co-located with County staff at Adams County Government Center. During all of this change, we didn’t slow down – in fact, we hit the gas. We served more people than ever and doubled-down on what works: quality affordable housing, a high-performing housing choice voucher program, and providing and connecting related services for our members from rent and utility assistance to health care navigation.

Unison Housing Partners is an undeniable opportunity for change, innovation and community growth lifting up families and rebuilding communities. Unison has been a stepping stone for me, personally, through multiple resources like 3CE, now known as the LIFE Center; youth programs for my son; the self-sufficiency program; and tons of wonderful support. I joined the Board of Commissioners to serve our community and be a voice for single mothers and women in general, to prove to me and them, if you fight hard nothing can stop you.
