Colorado Housing and Finance Authority is donating $6,095 to The Piñon Project Family Resource Center, a nonprofit that strengthens children and families in Southwest Colorado by providing comprehensive services such as education, mentoring and other programs to increase family stability.
The donation was the result of Like It Forward, CHFA’s annual social media campaign to benefit Colorado nonprofits whose work aligns with CHFA’s mission to invest in affordable housing and community development. Over the course of three weeks, CHFA invited the public to visit CHFA’s social media channels to like and share posts featuring information about The Piñon Project. For each like and share the posts received, CHFA donated $5 to The Piñon Project.
The $6,095 donation will help The Piñon Project in its work to provide comprehensive, evidence-based family, youth and early childhood programs, as well as emergency services for those experiencing one-time housing and/or utility emergencies, and other challenges.
The Piñon Project serves more than 3,000 children and families in Montezuma and Dolores Counties each year. In 2020, demand for The Piñon Project’s services has increased significantly as the effects of the pandemic are especially impacting those it serves.
Like It Forward 2020 marks CHFA’s sixth annual social media giving campaign of its kind.
