Empty Homes

Do you have a rental or second home that could serve our workforce?

Our Neighbor To Neighbor program is an initiative to connect some of the 3000 local, empty homes to our local workforce.

Our Initiative: Do you have an unoccupied home that could rented to a nurse from the hospital, an emergency responder from the police or fire department, or a teacher from one of our four school districts? Every sector of our local economy is struggling to hire and retain workers. We can make this far easier by offering the stable housing already built in our community. With over 3,000 chronically unoccupied homes in Jefferson County, we have a more than enough to go around if we put our hearts and minds to work.

We can connect you directly to employers like these or to property managers to ease the process in getting your space rented.

Curious to learn how we calculated the local empty homes? We scoured the US Census Bureau’s 2020 data and produced this short report.
