St. Francis Center helps men and women transition out of homelessness and into permanent housing. Cornerstone Residences at St. Francis Center, opened in 2010, is a 50 unit housing facility for men and women transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Our Senior Housing program provides case management for 20 individuals. The newly opened Saint Francis Apartments at Cathedral Square provides 49 units of permanent supportive housing as well.
Beyond helping people physically move into housing, we continue to provide case management and support to ensure that they will be successful. Case managers connect residents with resources such as healthcare, mental healthcare, and substance abuse treatment.
We also connect people with housing in several other ways, including:
- Family Reunification: Case managers help men and women locate family members, and provide funds for transportation when family members offer to provide housing.
- “Hard-to-place” adults: We connect former offenders with housing, mentoring, employment and educational opportunities, budgeting, transportation, life skills and support services. These individuals are classified as “hard-to-place” in both housing and jobs, and are classified by Denver’s Road Home as among the most vulnerable on the streets because many have a severe physical or mental illness.
