Greccio Housing

A nonprofit organization

Greccio provides residents opportunities today for a better tomorrow. By combining permanent housing with supportive services, we give residents the stability and tools they need to be able to focus on their long-term goals of becoming self-sufficient.

Who We Are Greccio is a community housing development organization in Colorado Springs that provides stable, safe, and affordable housing, offers resources for residents to achieve stability, and promotes solutions to the affordable housing needs of our community.

"I was working full-time, doing all the right things and I just couldn't catch a break. This was a chance to start over and rebuild our lives. For the first time, I even have savings." - Greccio Resident

“You've been so instrumental with my stability. I don't know where I'd be without Greccio. I couldn't believe the kindness of people that didn't know me.” -Jordan, Greccio Resident

"I am so grateful for Greccio housing, I had an opportunity to find a place to live right away. They were wonderful to work with." - Debbie, Greccio resident

"The best place for housing, they care about people and help in every way possible they saved me from the streets of homelessness"- Daisha, Greccio resident

"My family and I have dealt with many hardships in the last year, but applying to Greccio wasn't one of them. Joy at the front desk made me feel SO comfortable and clearly went through all paperwork to help me understand and have the best chance possible. I felt confident and I felt heard at Greccio." - Ary, Greccio resident


Greccio Housing's mission is to provide stable, safe, affordable housing; to offer resources for residents to achieve stability; and to promote solutions to the affordable housing needs of our community.

Background Statement

In 1990, Claudia Deats-Rodgers envisioned improving the quality of life for people in need of affordable housing in Colorado Springs. As a former Franciscan Nun who had worked with the Diocese to create affordable senior housing, she knew what it would take to meet that need. She gathered a group of dedicated volunteers and started Greccio Housing. Greccio now provides housing for 1,000 individuals each year to households earning a modest income throughout Colorado Springs.While personal engagement and responsiveness to individual's needs were always a part of Greccio, the Resident Resource Center's supportive services were formalized in 2002. Our supportive services and programming provide access to the necessary services and financial assistance to ensure the household remains stable.
