Durango rough on renters

Low supply, high demand push rents beyond reach of many
Sara Wakefield, the new executive director of Manna Soup Kitchen, and daughter Ellie, 8, unpack boxes after moving into their rental home in west Durango. Wakefield said finding a rental in Durango was a “nightmare.” She added, “I think I’m pretty lucky I ended up with anything at all.”
Gabriella Chiles, 13, with her brothers Christopher Pedlow, 11, holding the family dog, Tanner, and Rylee Pedlow, 6, listen to their mother, Rebecca Garcia, talk about living in Piñon Terrace, a Mercy Housing Community, east of Durango. “Living here allows me to be able to keep our family together. It’s awesome, and I have the best caring neighbor who has helped us out a lot,” Garcia said.
