Prosper >>CO a group that is under the umbrella of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce released a study that listed the amount of money that it will take for you to barely get by (roommates) and what it will take for you to maybe have a one-bedroom apartment. This same study also broke these statistics by gender and by race/ethnicity. We as Hispanics did not do well; in fact, we are the lowest-performing group by an overall percentage of the population. Below is a summary of the report that was released in the Colorado Sun. Please join this lineup of distinguished panelists and other guests as we talk about this study and how tech can be a catalyst for change.
