BOULDER – Thistle Community Housing (Thistle) celebrated NeighborWorks America Week by hosting a community event at their Bus Stop Apartments located at 4871 Broadway St. in Boulder on Wednesday, June 6.

This year, NeighborWorks America (NWA) is celebrating its 45th Anniversary, impacting communities and enhancing lives. NeighborWorks Week is an opportunity to increase visibility for its programs and the impact of the NeighborWorks network organizations. During NeighborWorks Week, the focus is on “Empowering Communities for Success” –  something NeighborWorks America celebrates every day. Thistle Community Housing is one of the nearly 250 nonprofit network organizations that work hard to support, build and uplift communities. Collectively, NWA programs have had a remarkable impact on providing residents and communities with access to resources that help them successfully overcome challenges and enhance their lives. NeighborWorks Week 2024 extends from June 1-8 and is intended to celebrate and empower communities by helping residents identify their power, use their power and harness their power.

Thistle was happy to celebrate NWA Week & continue their nearly 40 years of service to Boulder County by supporting moderate and lower-income individuals and families by offering affordable housing opportunities to live near where they may work or have family.
