Open Up is a nonprofit that matches people experiencing barriers to housing with available rooms and rental units in Denver Metro homes. Founded in 2017 as Providence HomeShare, Open Up has matched over 50 renters (home-seekers) with affordable spaces provided by homeowners, renters, and property owners (home-providers) in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties. Open Up works together with local organizations which provide supportive services, including career development and resource navigation, to help people overcome obstacles such as poverty, homelessness, and incarceration.


There are more than 442,000 underused livable spaces in Denver homes while 91,000 hardworking adults struggle to afford stable housing.
