Values & Beliefs
Posada recognizes and works to enhance the inherent dignity and value of each human being.
Posada believes that each human being has a right to decent shelter, food and clothing.
Posada believes that homelessness can be reduced only if underlying causes are addressed, including the lack of affordable housing and the need for a continuum of services to help clients reach the stability needed for independent living.
Posada's priority is to secure the services and housing that its clients need, whether provided by Posada or through the network of agencies available in Pueblo and the surrounding area.
Posada builds and rehabilitates housing for those in the lowest income brackets, housing that does not overlap with what private builders usually supply.
