The Aurora City Council approved a $40,000 emergency fund for these residents and about $30,000 of it has already been expended. All funds being used are from our Marijuana Tax Revenue designated funding for Homelessness Initiatives. Colfax Community Network has set up a Gofundme to raise money to make up the expected shortfall in funds.
We continue to advocate for and search for housing for another 25 families or so. Major partners in this effort are: the City of Aurora, Colfax Community Network, Aurora Warms the Night, Aurora@Home and the Aurora Housing Authority, Aurora Mental Health Center/Homeless programs and Arapahoe County.
