One year later: Beloved Community Village is a success
Sep 18, 2018
In response to Denver’s housing crisis, Radian partnered with the Colorado Village Collaborative to move forward and scale creative approaches to housing vulnerable members of our community. Beloved Community Village, a tiny home village for people experiencing homelessness, is a viable mechanism that was implemented in July 2017 to house people in a temporary and transitional way so that they can take that next step towards permanent affordable housing. The village consists of 11 (8’x15’) units, a shared bathing units (2 showers, 2 hand sinks, and 2 toilets), and a community space that helps support 15 residents.
One year later, three people transitioned into permanent housing and the village unemployment rates went from 25% to 0%
“By all accounts, the Beloved Community Tiny Home Village is widely considered a fully-functioning and productive community.”
