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.
