The KBUT Housing Crisis Connection
KBUT recognizes that the housing crisis has come to a head. While the Gunnison Valley awaits long term solutions, KBUT wants to be part of immediate solutions with the community. We want to do what we do best; be your source of connection and home.
That’s why we have created the KBUT Housing Crisis Connection. The aim is to connect people who can help with those who need help, NOW. Like our Lost & Founds, Pet Patrol, and Ride Board, the Housing Crisis Connection will collect and maintain a list of resources for people who have been displaced, or can’t find housing as they secure new employment in our great valley. If you are someone who can offer a place for people to shower, do laundry, occupy temporary storage space, a place to park a camper or tent, temporary home for pets who cannot camp or go with their humans into short-term space, or perhaps consider letting a family stay in your home for an affordable rate while they look for long-term housing, you can submit your generous offering by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org People in need will be able to source and search the list of available resources on our site, contact the station, and KBUT will connect people in need with people who can help.
Thank you for considering a shift in thinking about how to help your neighbors and friends in the immediate housing crisis. This mission is about generosity, compassion and sharing together.
