Minturn Families in Need

Local families need help! With a recent structure fire exposing hazardous living conditions within their trailer park, several displaced Minturn families and individuals are in need of safe housing.

If you or anyone you know are able to help, please consider contributing and spreading the word. Funds are being raised to support getting these Eagle County locals into safe housing, but everyone knows that's not cheap in the Vail Valley. We're trying to raise money for immediate lodging needs as most of these families only have housing through April 2nd. Additionally; first, last and security deposit funds for a safe, long-term housing solution. 100% of proceeds will go to the Minturn Community Fund's Neighbors in Need program for the direct use by these displaced locals. The Minturn Community Fund will match all contributions up to a total of $5000.00!
