Rocky Mountain HDC Presents "White Christmas"
Children from the residents of Rocky Mountain HDC housing were treated to a presentation of "White Christmas" as the Littleton Town Hall Arts Center. Members of RMHDC, as well guests, were also treated great food provided by Pasquini's and drinks from DTC Wine & Spirits.
"White Christmas" will be playing at the Center until December 31, 2010.
Rocky Mountain HDC operates on a housing first model —believing that securing safe, decent and affordable housing is the foundation for stable families. When housing costs consume a disproportionate share of income (30% or more), families cannot afford other necessities such as food, clothing, and healthcare. This imbalance often leads to compromised futures for families — many end-up homeless or living in substandard housing. Families with children are hit the hardest because they generally have more non-housing costs to consider. Raising a healthy child is difficult in the best of circumstances, but for a family that is trying to recover from or on the brink of homelessness the task can be daunting. When families have access to quality affordable housing, they can begin to improve their economic situation, contribute to their community, and create a brighter future for their children.
What sets RMHDC apart from other programs of this type is their Family Services Program. They provide tools in the areas of youth development, family support, and community building, so that a roof over the head of families is just the first step. These programs provide a solid foundation (pun intended) so that families can integrate back into the community as a whole and once again become independent and successful.
Currently, RMHDC has housing in five areas and provides homes for more than 250 families. For more information, log on to www.rockymountainhdc.org
