Modular housing community in Colorado welcomes its first residents

With donated land, low-interest mortgages, philanthropic grants, and a non-profit developer, a new community of modular homes has been created in Telluride, CO. 24 homes for local workers have allowed several families to achieve the goal of home ownership.
