Serena, whose name and image have been changed for privacy, is a tenant living in Denver. Her disability and other medical issues required her to spend extended periods of time in a nursing care facility, and her apartment stopped accepting her rent checks believing she had abandoned the unit.
After receiving a Demand for Rent, Serena reached out to CPLP for support. One of our housing attorneys contacted the landlord’s attorney to explain the situation and advocate for Serena’s continued residence at the apartment. The landlord agreed to not pursue an eviction case and work with Serena as she navigated health issues, and fortunately, she is now healthy enough to reside in her apartment full-time.
Like you, we believe no one should face housing insecurity this holiday season, and we depend on your support to help fight housing injustice for tenants like Serena. Every donation made Nov. 1 – Colorado Gives Day (Dec. 5th) is boosted by one of the largest community Incentive Funds in the country, meaning every dollar you give to CPLP through coloradogives.org will go even further to help prevent homelessness through legal representation, education, and advocacy for thousands of Coloradans. For tenants facing housing insecurity this holiday season, your support makes all the difference.
