Betty Valenzuela lives just west of downtown Denver in a two-bedroom bungalow not far from Elitch Gardens. Her home is more than 100 years old. As with many older homes in Denver’s historic neighborhoods, Betty’s house needed some TLC. But the much-needed repairs were more than she could reasonably afford, so, with a little help from her daughter and some online research, Betty found out about the Denver Urban Renewal Authority (DURA) and reached out for assistance through DURA’s Housing Rehabilitation Program.
