More affordable housing means better health for our community.


In Chaffee County, we believe that everyone has a right to adequate housing and good health. Unfortunately, that’s a goal that we are still working towards. In our county, there are still too many people who can’t access affordable housing. Studies and experiences from our county and state tell us that a lack of affordable housing also exacerbates health problems – including respiratory diseases, poor mental health, infectious disease, and high blood pressure.


Housing and health go hand-in-hand. The Housing + Health site provides resources, education and community stories to help you understand the challenges and solutions facing Chaffee County today.
