housing under construction

We’re having a community conversation about housing and health equity in Fort Collins and hope you can be a part of it. We believe that sharing experience is a powerful way to give a holistic perspective to our local challenges. With that philosophy in mind, the Home2Health project is hosting a free video screening and panel discussion to showcase the stories of community members as they relate to housing and health.

Home2Health is a collaborative, two-year project led by the City of Fort Collins Planning and Social Sustainability Departments. We are joined in this work by our community partners - The Family Leadership Training Institute at CSU Extension, the Center for Public Deliberation at CSU, The Family Center/La Familia, and the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment.

Our objective over the next two years is to implement updates to policies, codes, and regulations to improve housing affordability with a specific emphasis on health equity. This effort will be based on community dialogue and capacity building - so that the voices and ideas of community members who are experiencing the day-to-day reality of housing instability are reflected in the policy decisions we make.

This project is being funded by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Health Disparities Grant Program. For more information about the grant program, visit https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/health-disparities-grant-program.

    The goal of the Home2Health project is to recommend changes to land use codes and housing policies so we can improve housing affordability and health equity in Fort Collins. But ultimately, all of the changes we are considering will have a real impact on people.

    Maybe you have heard some of these stories: Aging residents who want to downsize but can’t find the right kind of housing options. Families and individuals who have to choose between paying for housing or paying their other bills. College students who can’t find an affordable place to rent. People who commute long distances into Fort Collins every day because our housing prices are so high.

    A critical piece of the Home2Health conversation is telling these kinds of stories about the everyday lives of people who live and work in our community. The stories we share will help us all gain a deeper understanding of the connections between housing and health. If you would like to share your story broadly with the community, there are a few ways you can get involved.

    Our first video storytelling opportunity will be a three-day Storytelling Workshop in Fort Collins, facilitated by StoryCenter. This workshop will give five community members an opportunity to document their stories about how they have experienced the connection between housing and health. These stories will then be shared at the Home2Health Community Kickoff event in late February. Additional opportunities will include other video/photo, audio, and written media.

    *Please note the StoryCenter Workshop is a 3-day workshop January 30th – February 1st. Space is limited. Home2Health covers the cost of the workshop and participant stipends are provided.

    Completed responses must be received by: Sunday, January 19th, 2020

    La meta del proyecto Home2Health es recomendar cambios al código de uso de suelo y políticas de vivienda para mejorar la vivienda accesible, así como la equidad de salud en Fort Collins. Pero al final, todos los cambios que consideraremos tendrán un impacto real en las personas.

    Tal vez haya escuchado alguna de estas historias: Personas de edad avanzada buscando mudarse a una casa más pequeña pero no tienen opciones de vivienda adecuadas. Familias, así como individuos, que tienen que escoger entre pagar la renta o la hipoteca, o pagar recibos de utilidades o deudas. Estudiantes universitarios que no pueden encontrar vivienda accesible a buen precio para rentar. Personas que tienen que manejar largas distancias cada día para venir a Fort Collins porque el costo de vivienda es muy alto.

    Una pieza fundamental del proyecto Home2Health consiste en compartir este tipo de historias acerca de la vida cotidiana de personas que viven y trabajan en nuestra comunidad. Las historias que compartamos nos ayudaran a todos a entender mas a fondo la conexión entre vivienda y salud. Si esta interesado en compartir sus historia ampliamente con la comunidad, hay algunas maneras en las que se pueden involucrar.

    La primera oportunidad para relatar su historia en video será un taller de tres días en Fort Collins de como contar su historia, el cual será facilitado por el Centro de Historias. Este taller les dará la oportunidad a cinco integrantes de la comunidad de contar su historia acerca de sus experiencias en relación con la vivienda y la salud. Estas historias serán compartidas en el evento de inauguración de Vivienda y Salud que se llevara a cabo a finales de febrero. Otras opciones para compartir sus historias incluyen a través de video o fotos, audio, así como historias escritas.

    *Nota el taller de como relatar su historia es un taller de tres días, del 30 de enero al 1 de febrero. El cupo es limitado. Home2Health cubrirá el costo del taller y proporcionará un estipendio a las participantes.
