Since 1983, the St. Francis Center has been successful in its mission to provide a safe place for people who are homeless in Denver to meet their basic needs for day-to-day survival while offering them assistance to transition out of homelessness. In 2009, the St. Francis Center opened Cornerstone, a 50-unit affordable housing complex, which provides permanent supportive housing to individuals transitioning from homelessness.
To further expand its housing services, the St. Francis Center is proud to announce the addition of Saint Francis Apartments at Cathedral Square, which is due to be completed in Winter 2017. Saint Francis Apartments will utilize a tried and true Housing First model to combat homelessness within the City of Denver and will provide permanent supportive services necessary to overcome chronic homelessness.
The development is ideally located to provide convenient services and amenities to individuals and families who may not otherwise have resources available to take advantage of opportunities necessary to advance their lives. Saint Francis Apartments will be located at the 1400 Block of North Washington Street in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood of Denver. The building will be proximate to a number of services and amenities, a key factor in the fight against homelessness.
The apartment building will consist of one six-story building with podium parking and a lobby/reception area on the ground floor as well as a manager’s unit. The building’s sixth story will contain approximately 2,669 square feet of common and service space which will include a large common/dining room, a meeting room, a library/computer lab, a central laundry facility, and an outdoor terrace. Floors two through five will each have twelve apartments.
