Each month in 2021, Better Car People spotlights one dealership and a local charity of their choice through our new Gratitude Campaign. Better Car People donates $1,000 to the charity in the name of the dealership in the hopes of helping the local community and spreading the word about the specific charity.
In August, Better Car People was delighted to highlight Brighton Ford and their charity partner Almost Home.
Dealer Partner: Brighton Ford
Location: Brighton, Co
Spokesperson: Stacey Mead
Charity: Almost Home
What is Almost Home?
Almost Home, in Brighton, Co, is an organization dedicated to helping the community experiencing housing instability. Especially in the past year and a half, more people/families are facing housing crises, and Almost Home provides emergency shelters and connects individuals and families to the resources in the community that could assist them as well.
Their programs include:
- Homeless Prevention Programs
- Supportive Housing Programs
- Emergency Shelter/Outreach Programs
The Foundation served 1,682 individuals in 2020 and over 85% of families leaving the shelter moved into permanent housing. Their goal of assisting people with housing insecurities has increased, and with partners like Bedford Ford, they will have more funding to assist with their work.
