During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Here at Ithaka, we have been housing low-income individuals and families for 38.5 years. We currently offer two types of Transitional Housing with Ithaka: Low-Barrier Transitional Housing (for individuals) and Service-Enhanced Transitional Housing (for families). We currently house more than 135 residents at two transitional homes, one apartment building, a few multi-family homes, and fifteen single family homes.
We are in need of Spanish Language Interpreters to work with our families. This would include translating at leasing appointments to help go over leases and answer questions, as well as sitting in on case management appointments to help translate for our case manager. Due to the varying need, there is no set shift for these meetings. We are looking for someone with flexibility during the work week. We are an organization that focuses on helping those with the highest vulnerability, so volunteers will be working with residents who are coming from homelessness, addiction and trauma, various criminal backgrounds, etc. We value building positive relationships with our residents, and look forward to having a volunteer that can help work towards that goal!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

At Ithaka, we believe that everyone needs a home. We provide housing for Colorado Spring's most vulnerable residents and believe that relationships are the key to stability and self-sufficiency.
Incorporated in April of 1981, Ithaka owns and maintains properties for the benefit of low-income people. We provide transitional housing and case management for individuals and families who are below the 30% AMI, or those with multiple barriers to stable housing. Also known as Ithaka Land, inc., we hold property "in trust" and "in perpetuity" on behalf of people with limited incomes. Despite our very small staff of 7, we currently house more than 125 residents at two communal houses, two apartment buildings, two four-unit buildings, and fifteen houses.
Ithaka benefits from our two most-valued assets: volunteers who make much of our work possible, and residents who give back to our organization. The number of people we serve remains small, allowing the land trust to maintain personal relationships, and adding a sense of community to our day-to-day operations.
We'll work with your schedule.
