We are excited to announce that EFAA is opening a new housing site in Nederland! This new site will benefit families with children and older adults living in the mountains and at risk of losing their homes. “The idea is to keep the community connection,” says Julie Van Domelen, Executive Director of EFAA, “So that mountain residents can maintain their jobs, schools, relationships, and routines.”
By opening this new housing property in Nederland, EFAA will round out its offerings of housing throughout Boulder County, adding to what is already available in Louisville, Longmont, Lafayette, and Boulder.
EFAA closed on the 10-unit Nederland property in June 2022 and will be honoring the leases of current residents until the end of January 2023. In February, EFAA will start its short-term housing programming for low-income families and fixed-income older adults who are at risk or have lost their housing. It is not a drop-in homeless shelter, and it is not permanently affordable housing.
As is the case with EFAA’s other housing sites, participants in our Nederland housing program will have access to a mountain resource liaison to help them work toward self-defined goals and connect them to other critical community resources.
We are excited to expand our critical housing support into Boulder County mountain communities!
