Pueblo, CO

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2021

Project Category: Lifelong housing and accessibility

Description: For years, Posada worked with unhoused residents of Pueblo to help them find temporary and permanent housing. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, however, those served by Posada were even more in crisis, so the organization shifted its resources to emergency needs such as food aid and rent and utility assistance. Posada also began renovating a former motel into single-room-occupancy units for older adults experiencing homelessness. When completed, the former Sunset Motel will include 17 units, and its residents will have convenient access to case managers and supportive services, including health care.

Trinidad, CO

Project Category: Community Gardens

Description: This project restored the museum garden and divided it into seven specialty gardens (dye, herb, heritage, high altitude/low water, medicinal and vegetable), which now feature raised planting beds and ADA-compliant seating.
