The folks at Colorado Village Collaborative and Denver Community Church would like to provide an update on the Safe Outdoor Space at 16th and Pearl.  Please join on Thursday, Feb 11, 7-8:30pm to learn more.  Also, the model is succeeding!  We are pleased to report that 6 of our SOS residents are moving out of the SOS and into a tiny home village.


Here's a more complete update we've received from Colorado Village Collaborative:

Hi Neighbors,

I hope February is treating you well. The days are getting a bit longer, which means a bit more warmth and sun on our Safe Outdoor Space site at Denver Community Church.
I'm writing to you to offer a brief update and an invitation to join our next Good Neighbor Meeting on Thursday, February 11 from 7:00pm-8:30pm. Zoom link below.
Update from Denver City Council: Yesterday, a contract to fund our Safe Outdoor Space at DCC and one other Safe Outdoor Space to be operated in partnership with St. Francis Center unanimously passed through Denver City Council's Safety, Housing, Education and Homelessness Committee and now moves on to full council. Please note, that although this contract approves funding through the end of the year, we remain firm in our commitment to wind down our services at DCC on May 31, 2021. At this time, we are searching for two new sites to operate SOS through the end of the year. Watch the committee meeting here: http://denver.granicus.com/player/clip/14043?view_id=180&redirect=true
Update from the SOS: We are pleased to report that 6 of our SOS residents are moving out of the SOS and into a tiny home village! This will provide those residents with more stability, and confidence on their path to permanent housing, while making space for more unhoused neighbors to move into the SOS. Below, I have attached a photo that I took last week as we celebrated 6 weeks of successful operation at DCC.
To follow our progress with siting and resident progress on an ongoing basis, please subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of our homepage or follow our facebook page.
Hope to "see" you next week!
