Connections works closely with our partners at the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, Division of Housing, to secure Housing Choice Vouchers (termed as Section 8 housing) for persons who live with disabling conditions. This program provides assistance to the individual, allowing for lower rental fees based upon gross income.
While we specifically serve individuals within our seven county, northeastern Colorado service region, we can also assist other Colorado residents.
