Hope Communities Responds to COVID-19

See also Operations & Support Services for Residents & Community Members→

On behalf of the entire Hope Communities organization, we hope that you, your family and loved ones are healthy and taking all recommended precautions concerning the Coronavirus outbreak. We have taken multiple measures to reduce risk at our properties, and in the Hope administrative building, while still providing high-quality service to you.

Effective Wednesday March 18th, our leasing, property manager and program offices will limit face-to-face meetings and visitations to the office in order to comply with the CDC rules for social distancing. We ask that if you do schedule an in-person meeting that you stop at the door and use the hand sanitizers and wipes that are available as you enter the office. We will be following the protocol of the COVID-19 Recommendations of The Colorado Department of Public Health.

We remain committed to our mission to provide safe housing and pathways to economic and personal opportunity for all our residents and members of the communities we serve. We will be doing this work through a “Health and Safety First” lens. We accept responsibility to help you understand the overwhelming amount of information that is pouring in. Let us know how we can help.
