Home has been more important than ever in 2020. Carbondale’s homeless and especially the “almost homeless” has been on the rise in our community. Lynn Kirchner, owner and managing broker of Amoré Realty, is one of the founding members of the Carbondale Homeless Assistance (CHA). The CHA coalition has been working together for over five years, and has successfully helped local habitat-challenged individuals with everything from dental surgery to meals to showers at the Carbondale Recreation Center.
Overall, it is estimated that there were a dozen or so recognized homeless in the area — drawing a distinction from transient panhandlers. CHA encourages people to give anyone in need food or gift cards rather than cash.
With most of their fundraising going toward meals and showers, the organization hasn’t had much of a chance to expand or even incorporate as a formal nonprofit. Town of Carbondale has come along side CHA to financially help with showers but all other support comes from individuals.
To financially help the CHA please send your donations to:
Carbondale Homeless Assistance c/o Amoré Realty 711 Main St Carbondale, CO 81623
Gift Cards may also be dropped off at the above address as well. (City Market, Subway etc…)
