Colorado’s housing crisis is a systemic issue that policy makers, housing developers, and nonprofit organizations have been grappling with for decades. To further examine this issue, the Colorado Community Media team launched a 4-week series, The Long Way Home: Colorado Community Media’s in-depth look at the housing crisis.
Over the last six months, two dozen journalists, editors and staff at Colorado Community Media (CCM) have been having conversations with community members, housing leaders, and government officials to learn where we started, how we got here and what the solutions are.
As part of this series, the CCM team spoke with Maiker member and Orchard Crossing community ambassador Shelley Gilson on what housing means to her. Read her story here.
Maiker leadership was also involved in helping contextualize the crisis with CCM. The four week series is live now. Check it out here.
Stay tuned for the rest of the series in the coming weeks.
