Campaign: #ComcastCaresDay: Volunteering to Make Change

​ How One Denver Group Works to Make a House a Home

What makes a house a home? Certainly, having a set place for your family to live helps. But more than half a million Americans, and 500 million people globally, don’t have this luxury. They sleep wherever they can find a safe, dry space — maybe it’s a shelter. Or maybe it’s a park bench.

One organization that’s working to change that is the Denver Housing Authority. The DHA has provided more than 26,000 low- and middle-income people with housing. This means 10,000 families have a warm, safe place to sleep every night because of the DHA.

Its mission is for every person or family in the city of Denver to have quality and affordable housing in communities that support them, offer economic opportunity, and have a vibrant environment. The DHA does this by developing, owning, and operating safe, decent, and affordable housing.

And with the help of Comcast Cares Day, the DHA will be able to make those housing units even better for the families who live there. This year, Comcast Cares Day volunteers will work on a variety of cleanup and storage projects from painting and refinishing furniture to replacing some of the computer lab and community room furniture and more.

So basically, making these houses feel more like a home. Help Us Make Change Happen on April 22.
