Supportive Housing

Supportive housing is a type of housing for people who need affordable rental housing with ongoing support services to help them remain stably housed. The Division of Housing works with public housing authorities, shelters, and nonprofit organizations that use a process called Coordinated Entry and an assessment tool called the VI-SPDAT to prioritize who gets supportive housing in Colorado. The rating system looks at your income, history of homelessness, whether you have special needs, and more. Those with the greatest need are rated higher for eligibility for the program.

The supportive housing projects are listed below, along with their sponsoring organizations. We also list two of the largest gatekeepers of housing in the state: Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and Volunteers of America.

To get into supportive housing, you must go through the Coordinated Entry process. We recommend four ways to do this. 1) Contact the Coalition if you’re homeless or VOA if you’re a veteran. 2) Contact the specific program listed below where you hope to live. 3) Contact a community nonprofit such as a day shelter, emergency shelter, or re-entry organization and ask to be assessed using the VI-SPDAT. 4) If you’re on parole, ask your parole officer and your parole office’s Community Re-entry Specialist about housing resources.

Colorado Coalition for the Homeless PATH program helps adults living with mental illness move from homelessness into permanent housing and find the resources you need to support recovery and maintain long-term housing stability.

There is no referral necessary. It's helpful but not required if you bring the following with you: photo ID, Social Security card, birth certificate, and proof of income. Because there can me a wait list for housing programs, the sooner you begin the application process the sooner you will obtain permanent housing.
