Partnership Awards

The BHP Partnership Award is given to recognize the important work being done by individuals, residents, businesses, nonprofits and governmental agencies for their support of BHP and its mission.

Award Recipients

At the September 13, 2023 Board of Commissioners Meeting, we recognized the following partners for going above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of BHP residents and the Boulder community.

Local Boulder Business Partner: Clutter Trucker

The services provided by Clutter Trucker increase housing stability, safety, and wellness for some of Boulder Housing Partners’ most vulnerable residents. Clutter Trucker provides personalized cleaning and de-cluttering services to support residents in creating a living environment that is safe for themselves and their neighbors, while also meeting the requirements of their leases. These services are provided with a high level of professionalism and an awareness that hoarding behaviors are often triggered by traumatic events, such as divorce or the death of a loved one. Their empathetic and understanding team invites the resident to be a part of the process.  This approach helps to alleviate resident stress (which is an inherent part of the process) and increases the likelihood of success.

The services provided by this family-owned business are unduplicated within our community and provide an essential resource for residents who may otherwise not be able to remain stable in their homes.

Non-Profit Partner: Boulder Food Rescue

Boulder Food Rescue (BFR) is essential to our BHP apartment communities. Through their food redistribution systems, they help residents at many BHP communities overcome barriers to food access.  while inspiring hope and advancing social justice for those facing food insecurity. BFR’s hard work means they save healthy food from being thrown away, sharing it in ways that work for each BHP community. This service directly supports residents and contributes to many of BHP’s main goals including stable housing, financial stability, stronger communities, and healthier lives.

Diana Alvarado, the Community Engagement Manager for BFR, is a key link between BHP and BFR. Diana’s multifaceted role not only cultivates but also sustains and enhances community engagement. She provides outreach and support to BHP’s volunteers who are responsible for distributing food; she organizes events and makes sure food gets to people efficiently. Diana’s important role keeps our communities engaged and connected while creating a lasting impact on strong community partnerships.
