Our Vision

To provide self-sufficiency programming for residents with two main goals:


  • Empower individuals to break free from the cycle of poverty and achieve lasting economic independence.

  • Ensure our senior citizens and individuals with disabilities can thrive comfortably within their homes, maintaining their cherished independence without the need for assisted living.

Friends of DHA is a nonprofit that raises funds to support self-sufficiency programming for the Denver Housing Authority’s (DHA) Resident & Community Connections Department (RCC).  The essential funding provided by Friends of DHA helps to sustain a wide variety of current programs and services to residents in and around DHA’s affordable housing communities.

Friends of DHA is charged with pursuing new avenues of funding, expanding services to more households both within and outside of DHA’s subsidized housing properties, and creating new opportunities for more people throughout the Denver metro area.
