The program has 12 condominiums in Boulder. Rent starts at $225 a month and won’t exceed 30% of a household income. Clients pay rent and utilities, and work closely with case managers to reach individual goals. Historically, over 75% of the Transitional Housing Program clients move into safe, stable housing within two years.
