Established in 1953, Thornton started with three homes that were built with families in mind. Today, Thornton is still focused on providing quality housing opportunities for those who desire to live in our community. The City regularly assesses the Thornton housing market to ensure the community has safe, affordable and quality housing options. You can find information through this page on housing workshops for first time homebuyers, home repair programs, foreclosure assistance, housing for seniors, people with disabilities and veterans, as well as information on HOAs, renter rights, and emergency housing programs.
