The West Steps: Colorado Needs Better Data About Evictions

Written by: Children's Campaign
Date Posted: February 7, 2024

National research shows that families with children are more likely to experience an eviction – and that evictions can be extremely disruptive for kids’ education, health, and overall well-being. But data about what is happening across Colorado is inconsistent and hard to access. The Colorado Children’s Campaign and Enterprise Community Partners join us to talk about a new bill that would improve our state’s eviction data collection – an important step toward creating policies to prevent unnecessary evictions.

You can contact Sarah Barnes, Senior Director of Policy at the Colorado Children’s Campaign, and Kinsey Hasstedt, Senior Program Director for State and Local Policy at Enterprise Community Partners, to learn more about this bill.
