    Mientras seguimos atravesando la incertidumbre de COVID-19, lo cierto es que el registro de historias sobre la salud y la vivienda nunca ha sido más importante en estos tiempos. El proyecto Home2Health está colaborando con el proyecto Fort Collins Museum of Discovery: Making History (Museo del Descubrimiento de Fort Collins: Haciendo Historia) para recopilar historias de la comunidad a través de una plataforma central.

    Home2Health y Fort Collins Museum of Discovery: Making History

    Mientras seguimos atravesando la incertidumbre de COVID-19, lo cierto es que el registro de historias sobre la salud y la vivienda nunca ha sido más importante en estos tiempos. El proyecto Home2Health está colaborando con el proyecto Fort Collins Museum of Discovery: Making History (Museo del Descubrimiento de Fort Collins: Haciendo Historia) para recopilar historias de la comunidad a través de una plataforma central. Home2Health utilizará las historias recopiladas para informar la próxima política de salud y vivienda. Además de las historias, se puede compartir observaciones, imágenes, archivos de sonido e imágenes en movimiento. Durante la crisis sanitaria por COVID-19, el museo recibirá materiales en formato digital y con el tiempo, planea expandir la recolección de obras de arte, diarios, entrevistas y objetos que ayuden a contar la historia de este período sin precedentes. Al final, los materiales enviados pasarán a formar parte del área Colecciones y Archivo del Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, asimismo, se podrán utilizar en exhibiciones, programas y publicaciones futuras. Las indicaciones del formulario en línea del museo son generales, por lo que, al compartir su historia, le recomendamos que considere las siguientes preguntas adicionales:

    1. ¿Cómo ha impactado la enfermedad de COVID-19 y el cierre de actividades económicas su salud y/o vivienda?
    2. ¿Cómo deberíamos usar esta crisis sanitaria por COVID-19 para crear oportunidades a fin de mejorar la salud y la vivienda en nuestra comunidad?

    ¿Está preparado para compartir su historia? ¡Haga clic aquí para comenzar!

    ¿Le preocupa su privacidad? Los campos de nombre y correo electrónico de este formulario no son obligatorios y está permitido enviar una historia anónima. Si tiene alguna pregunta, inquietud o dificultad técnica, comuníquese con el equipo de Home2Health al correo electrónico: home2health@fcgov.com.



    Center for Public Deliberation de la CSU – Guías comunitarios, fase 2

    Nuestros socios del Center for Public Deliberation (Centro para la Deliberación Pública, CPD) de la CSU acaban de lanzar la fase 2 del programa de Guías comunitarios de Home2Health. Los Guías comunitarios trabajan para llevar las voces de nuestras comunidades manteniendo conversaciones dentro de sus propias redes y dando comentarios sobre esos debates a la ciudad.

    Para esta fase de compromiso, seguiremos escuchando a nuestros residentes sobre sus experiencias con la vivienda y la salud, además ampliaremos estas conversaciones para aprender sobre las consecuencias de la pandemia de COVID-19 y los impactos económicos subsiguientes. Actualmente, estamos reclutando guías que hayan trabajado previamente con la ciudad y el CPD como Guías Comunitarios, Embajadores del Plan, o Socios de la Comunidad para Home2Health, Nuestro Futuro Climático o Plan de la Ciudad. Si ha trabajado en esa función antes y quiere ser parte del programa de Guías comunitarios, ¡inscríbase aquí!

    Esperamos ofrecer pronto esta oportunidad a la comunidad en general, en particular para las personas que están interesadas en relacionarse con los miembros de la comunidad históricamente desatendidos. Si está interesado en convertirse en un Guía comunitario en el futuro o quiere obtener más información, visite el Centro de Capacitación para Guías Comunitarios, el cual ofrece lecciones en línea sobre cómo mantener conversaciones y relacionarse con los miembros de la comunidad.


    For Fort Collins y For FoCo

    Hace poco, una colaboración de socios comunitarios lanzó una campaña cuyo objetivo es apoyar a las empresas locales, en particular a las que pertenecen a las industrias más afectadas por COVID-19. Esta campaña se llama "For Fort Collins" (Para Fort Collins) y el sitio web, forfortcollins.com, brinda información sobre los últimos requisitos de distanciamiento físico y las buenas prácticas para las empresas locales.

    For FoCo (Para FoCo), es un sitio web complementario, que servirá como recurso para que los residentes de Fort Collins compartan historias, fotos y videos sobre cómo se mantienen en contacto con los vecinos y la comunidad en general durante el brote y los esfuerzos de recuperación. Este sitio tiene una variedad de oportunidades de participación y lo animamos a que visite ambos sitios para mantenerse informado, actualizado y para saber sobre cómo participar.

  • Resource Available: Colorado Health Institute Report - Home Equity

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
    18 Nov 2019

    In August 2019, the Colorado Health Institute published Home Equity: A Vision of Housing Security, Health and Opportunity. The report summarizes data from across Colorado and outlines the wide range of housing and health challenges facing many families and individuals in our state. The following is from the Colorado Health Institute website:


    "Housing affects health. The affordability, stability, quality, and accessibility of housing all play a role in individuals’ and communities’ health. The connection is clear, but it’s a complicated undertaking to build a system that addresses needs and inequities in both housing and health.

    In August 2019, the Colorado Health Institute published Home Equity: A Vision of Housing Security, Health and Opportunity. The report summarizes data from across Colorado and outlines the wide range of housing and health challenges facing many families and individuals in our state. The following is from the Colorado Health Institute website:


    "Housing affects health. The affordability, stability, quality, and accessibility of housing all play a role in individuals’ and communities’ health. The connection is clear, but it’s a complicated undertaking to build a system that addresses needs and inequities in both housing and health.

    A rapid increase in Colorado housing prices is straining many Colorado households. Discriminatory policies in the past and present make the situation even more challenging for people of color. The statistics are striking:

    • The average Colorado home price increased 77 percent in the past decade, but the state’s median income went up just 4.5 percent.
    • Overall, 26 percent of white Coloradans live in households that are cost-burdened, meaning they spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing; among African Americans, it’s 39 percent.
    • Denver has the nation’s second-highest rate of involuntary displacement of Hispanic residents (behind only San Jose, California).
    The good news is that across Colorado, people are working to build a more equitable system that will allow everyone to have a stable home, which in turn provides the foundation for good health."


    This resource is one among many that are guiding the early work of the Home2Health project. Understanding the context of Colorado as a whole is important as we compile data to show how Fort Collins residents are experiencing challenges with housing affordability and health.
