About Us

Since 2008, HomesFund has been helping people achieve their homeownership goals. Our team does this by prioritizing our customers’ needs and placing their long-term financial stability and well-being at the forefront. HomesFund believes that a community that has healthy and happy homeowners is a vibrant and thriving community.

The mission of HomesFund is to build diverse and resilient communities by developing affordable housing and empowering residents with the financial resources and educational tools to achieve homeownership. The HomesFund serves homeowners in La Plata, Montezuma, Archuleta, San Juan and Dolores County.

The HomesFund, a 501(c)3 nonprofit,  is a certified Community Development Financial Institute and a HUD approved housing counseling agency. The HomesFund receives funding to administer a variety of homeownership programs on behalf of the local jurisdictions including the Fair Share Program for the City of Durango and the Durango Mountain Resort program for La Plata County.

We are grateful to our broad base of community partners, who like us, see the value in providing homeownership opportunities in southwest Colorado.
