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.

Home2Health es un proyecto colaborativo de dos años que dirigen los Departamentos de Sostenibilidad Social y Planeamiento de la Ciudad de Fort Collins (City of Fort Collins Planning and Social Sustainability). En este trabajo nos unimos a nuestros socios comunitarios: The Family Leadership Training Institute at CSU Extension (Instituto de Capacitación en Liderazgo Familiar) en CSU, Center for Public Deliberation at CSU (Centro de Deliberación Pública) en CSU, The Family Center/La Familia y Larimer County Department of Health and Environment (Departamento de Salud y Medio Ambiente del Condado de Larimer).

Nuestro objetivo en los próximos dos años es implementar actualizaciones a las políticas, códigos y regulaciones para mejorar la accesibilidad a la vivienda con un énfasis específico en la equidad sanitaria. Este esfuerzo se basará en el diálogo con la comunidad y la construcción de capacidad, para que las opiniones y las ideas de los integrantes de la comunidad que afrontan la realidad diaria de la inestabilidad de vivienda se reflejen en las decisiones regulatorias que tomamos.

Este proyecto es financiado por el Departamento de Salud Pública de Colorado (Colorado Department of Public Health) y el Programa de Subsidio de Disparidades de Salud del Medio Ambiente (Environment's Health Disparities Grant Program).

    Home2Health & the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery: Making History

    As we continue to navigate through the uncertainty of COVID-19, one thing that is certain is that stories about health and housing have never been more important to capture. The Home2Health project is collaborating with the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery’s Making History project to collect community stories through one central platform. Home2Health will use the stories collected to inform future health and housing policy. Beyond stories, you can share observations, images, sound files, and moving images. The Museum will be taking digital submissions throughout the COVID-19 health crisis, and over time, they plan to expand by collecting artwork, journals, interviews and objects that help tell the story of this unprecedented time in history. Ultimately, submitted materials will become part of the Collections and Archive at Fort Collins Museum of Discovery and may be used in future exhibits, programs, and publications. The prompts on the Museum’s online form are general so, when sharing your story, we encourage you to consider these two additional questions:

    1. How has COVID-19 and the economic shutdown impacted your health and/or housing?
    2. How should we use this COVID-19 health crisis to create opportunities for better health and housing in our community?

    CSU’s Center for Public Deliberation – Community Guides, Phase 2

    Our partners at CSU’s Center for Public Deliberation have just launched Phase 2 of the Home2Health Community Guide program. Community Guides work to lift the voices of our communities by conducting conversations within their own networks and providing feedback from those discussions to the City.

    For this round of engagement, we’ll continue hearing from our residents about their experiences with housing and health and will expand those conversations to learn about the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic impacts. Currently, we’re recruiting guides who have previously worked with the City and the CPD as Community Guides, Plan Ambassadors, or a Community Partners for Home2Health, Our Climate Future, or City Plan. If you’ve worked in that capacity before and want to be a part of the Community Guide program, apply here!

    We’re hoping to open this opportunity to the wider community soon, particularly for those interested in connecting with historically underserved community members. If you’re interested in becoming a Community Guide in the future or want to learn more, visit the Community Guide Training Hub, which offers online lessons on how to conduct conversations and connect with community members.


    For Fort Collins & For FoCo

    Recently, a collaboration of community partners launched a campaign aimed at supporting local businesses, particularly those in the industries most affected by COVID-19. This campaign is called “For Fort Collins” and the website forfortcollins.com is a source of information for the latest physical distancing requirements and best practices for local business.

    For FoCo, a companion website, will serve as a resource for Fort Collins residents to share stories, photos and video about how they are staying connected to neighbors and the larger community during both the outbreak and recovery efforts. This site has a variety of engagement opportunities and we encourage you to check out both sites to stay educated, up-to-date and, to learn about how to get involved.

    Proyecto Home2Health


    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
