Home makes the world full of possibilities. Home is where I can create a life for my family and me, where I can take on the world, and retreat when I need a break from the pressures of life. It’s an anchor and launch pad.
Gillian Bliss, Evergreen Property Management
They say home is where the heart is, but in 2020 home, is where we work, educate our children, feed our children, and even isolate or quarantine to protect ourselves and others. Without stable living conditions, our ability to earn, educate, and keep ourselves safe will quickly fall apart. Home is now more important than ever.
Nina Bodenhamer, City of Fort Collins
Home can be many different things to different people: refuge, peace, routine, safety, joyfulness, permanence. But the absence of a home is a universal vulnerability. To me, this gap is what defines my home: gratitude for our good fortune, and compassion for those without a doorway of their own to cross each and every day.
Amanda Huston, Coan, Payton & Payne, LLC
Home is rootedness; home is the wellspring of warm memories and relationships from which we fashion ourselves; and home is the springboard from which we launch confidently out into the world. Home is our foundation.
Brian Mannlein, Cushman & Wakefield
Stability, comfort, security, solace. Home provides us the ability to plan for the future and focus on what matters most. Home is our foundation.
Rev. Joseph Moore, Presbyterian Foundation
Home is a safe and stable place. A real place where our need for connection is met. Home is a place where there can be space to dream of endless possibility.
Sari Oberndorf, Larimer County
‘Home is where the cat is!’ But seriously, home is everything. Having grown up in a broken home and a survivor of childhood trauma, home is my safe space, and my place to recharge my spirit so I can rise each day and give it back to those in need. Home is where I get to take off my “work hat,” focus on me, and foster my creative self.
Mark Teplitsky, Krische Construction
Home is where our family thrives. The peace our home provides sets us up for success in everything else we do.
