The Apartment Association of Metro Denver held a bowling tournament that raised over $34,000 for Family Homestead, which provides emergency and transitional housing to very low-income families.
Mark Williams, executive vice president of the Apartment Association of Metro Denver, said in a statement this week that his members’ goal was the same as Family Homestead’s: “To provide housing for families and to see them thrive as a result.”
“Every day, our housing providers see families who teeter on the edge of homelessness,” Williams said.
The landlord group has supported Family Homestead for 30 years, with its members regularly volunteering to clean and maintain apartments Family Homestead owns and provides families in its programs. Last month’s “Hollywood Bowl” fundraiser was a first. More than 300 people and 40 teams took part in the event sponsored by Arbor Contract Carpet at AMF Monaco Lanes in Denver.
Family Homestead focuses on families with children. In addition to its housing programs, Family Homstead’s social work staff help families with employment, education and in other areas.
