Here at Ithaka, we have been housing low-income individuals and families for over 37 years. We provide both transitional and permanant affordable housing primarily serving those individuals and families earning under 50% of the area median income adjusted for family size. We currently house more than 125 residents at two transitional homes, one apartment building, a few multi-family homes, and fifteen single family homes.
The land trust benefits from our two most-valued assets: volunteers who make much of our work possible, and residents who give back to our organization. The number of people we serve remains small, allowing the land trust to maintain personal relationships, and adding a sense of community to our day-to-day operations.
Our mission is to house the city's most vulnerable. We envision a Colorado Springs where all individuals and families are housed in a supportive environment and are connected with resources to assist with their growth in the community.
