|DENVER – Tuesday, November 28, 2023 – Denver Housing Authority (DHA) and the Friends of DHA announced today that there are multiple ways to support DHA’s nonprofit arm committed to fostering vibrant communities through resident programming. “The average family living in DHA’s public housing earns less than $10,000 per year and more than half of the residents are children,” Annie Hancock, DHA director of resident and community connections said. “Donations to Friends of DHA connects these families to vital supportive services and life-changing programs that help residents and communities thrive.”
