Here at Ithaka, we have been housing low-income individuals and families for over 37 years. We currently offer two types of Transitional Housing with Ithaka: Low-Barrier Transitional Housing (for individuals) and Service-Enhanced Transitional Housing (for families earning around 30% of the area median income adjusted for family size). We currently house more than 135 residents at two transitional homes, one apartment building, a few multi-family homes, and fifteen single family homes. 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 our 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.
