Katie Symons

Katie Symons, representing DOLA, DOH and CHFA, talks about the primary contributors in a privatized for non-profit, subsidized housing project for the homeless and addicted citizens of Trinidad in a meeting with city officials at the Trinidad Community Center on Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Throughout the last election cycle in Las Animas County, two single social issues grabbed the most consistent attention and garnered some of the most heated arguments. These pressing issues are homelessness and opioid addiction and how Trinidad can deal with both.

At the Trinidad Community Center on Tuesday, Dec. 12, Trinidad city officials played host to consultant Katie Symons with LaBeau Developers who state agencies like Colorado’s Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), Colorado Division of Health (DOH), and the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA) and presented a focused, progressive and proactive program to provide housing for Trinidad’s homeless population while offering essential services to help the homeless progress towards a ‘normal’ life.
