What is the Flex Fund?
The Flex Fund provides flexible, one-time assistance to help households experiencing homelessness secure permanent housing, and in some cases, remain in housing thanks to the Metro Mayors Caucus, Denver Foundation, and Private Sector contributions.
How is the Metro Mayors Caucus working on homelessness and housing?
32 members (80%) contributed $68,300 and secured a $50,000 match from the Denver Foundation and a $15,000 match from a Private Sector Donor. In December, as we began celebrating the holidays, the Flex Fund ran dry. MDHI reached out to us for help and The Denver Foundation issued a challenge to match up to $30k in our donations. We knew we could do better and we did. Our efforts inspired another $15k in private sector match. On Wednesday, we celebrated more than $133,000 in 2019 Flex Fund Contributions. Every dollar contributed helps end homelessness for a metro area individual or family.
