Housing Services

Having an affordable home to live in is one of the most important factors in both physical and mental recovery and well-being.

Committed to Housing for All

At the Mental Health Center of Denver, we understand that it is difficult to get well -- to sustain a sense of personal dignity and belonging in the community -- without the stability of a home. That is why the provision of affordable and supported housing is such a vital part of our mission of enriching lives and minds by focusing on strengths and well-being.
We operate 14 residential treatment houses and nine apartment buildings. We also participate with city, state and federal agencies to help more than 600 households find housing that meets their needs and expectations through voucher programs. And we offer these homes in conjunction with a comprehensive array of clinical and supportive services to meet the individual needs of the people we serve, including: psychiatry, financial coaching and support, employment assistance, medical care, substance use counseling, acquisition of public benefits, support for family life and engagement with activities of daily living.

Residential Facilities

An essential step in achieving recovery and well-being is having a safe place to call home. Our residential treatment program is dedicated to helping residents gain the skills they need in order to live in the housing situation of their choice.

We offer 14 licensed assisted living residences designed to promote recovery for those with mental illness and substance use issues in the Denver area. Our programs teach life skills, provide group treatment, and vary in length ranging from four to 90 days, with longer stays possible depending upon individual need. The amount of staff support and level of service provided is unique to each facility.

Congregate Apartments

We have nine apartment buildings which give some of our program participants the opportunity to live independently as part of the wider community—often for the first time in their lives. Each building has an on-site manager to support providing enhanced support to residents in their independent living experiences.
