Our guest speaker at the May 23rd dinner meeting was Kelly Evans, Executive Director of local non-profit, Neighbor to Neighbor. The mission of N2N is to open doors and advance lives through house counseling, homelessness prevention and affordable housing. N2N has 4 key service areas: Renter Program-prevents displacement and provides budget education; Affordable Housing Program- N2N owns and operates 135 affordable apartments; Home Ownership Program- educates over 1200 1st time homebuyers each year; and just launched on March in collaboration with CSU is the HomeShare Program- matched senior homeowners with renters to allow the seniors to age in home and renters to have affordable housing. Attending Quota members appreciated the opportunity to learn more about Neighbor-to-Neighbor services and programs.
