One Village One Family Referral Sources

Please note: families can apply directly to the One Village One Family (OVOF) program. Simply contact our OVOF Program Manager, Diane Matthews, by phone at (970) 829-8934 or by email at to get started. We also accept referrals from the agencies at the bottom of this page.

Do you represent, or are you a part of, a family that might benefit from this program?  In order to be eligible for the program, a family must meet the following minimum requirements:

  1. Have legal custody of at least one child age 17 or younger living in the household.
  2. Have a combination of reliable income and non-expiring aid that can support the living expenses and long term monthly rental payments (average $1,050 for two bedrooms or average $650 with housing voucher).
  3. Cannot already have a rent/lease agreement or own a home.
  4. Cannot have any recent violent felony convictions against them.
  5. Must be willing and committed to meet with a volunteer team in the community a minimum of seven times and be generally receptive to/in need of support for  at least a six-month period.
  6. Must include at least one caregiver who resides legally in the United States.
