Housing Partnership

Har HaShem has partnered with Boulder Bridge House and Boulder Property Management to address the affordable housing shortage in Boulder. The congregation’s two houses are now rented to graduates of Bridge House’s Ready to Work program. The graduates, who are working full-time in the community, continue to receive support from Bridge House, including a rent subsidy. The partners hope to demonstrate a new, economically efficient and viable model for providing affordable housing in Boulder.

Household Items Collections

Har HaShem partners with other faith organizations to collect household items for people moving from homelessness into a permanent housing situation. The needs are always changing, but include items like bedding, bath towels, trash cans, dishes, kitchen gadgets and small appliances, etc. Contact if you would like more information.
