COLORADO SPRINGS — Homeward Pikes Peak announced Thursday that it received a Low Income Housing Tax Credit from the Colorado Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) to fund the development of a project called 'The Commons' that will house homeless families, adults and chronically homeless Veterans in our community.

This new project will provide vital services for the recovery and transitional housing program for homeless individuals and families in our community.

This is all possible due to a partnership between Homeward Pikes Peak, Dominium, BlueLine Property Management, BeauxSimone Development and the Diocese of Colorado Springs.

“HPP is so proud to develop this housing for our community," said Beth Hall Roalstad, MSW Executive Director of Homeward Pikes Peak. "The recent pandemic illustrates even more how vulnerable families and individuals are when they do not have safe, stable and affordable housing. The Commons will fill a gap of permanent supportive housing for families that does not exist today. We look forward to the day move-in day in early 2022.”

The Commons will be located at 3770 E. Uintah Ave. in Colorado Springs and will include 50 units of one, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

There will also be an area for supportive services that will include, behavioral and physical health care, employment assistance, and family support services.

The new building is conveniently located near transportation hubs, childcare, and grocery and other services.
