Glenarm Commons

Glenarm Commons is our newest proposed permanent supportive apartment homes. Located next to St. Andrews Episcopal Church in downtown Denver, Glenarm Commons will include 48 furnished apartments with on-site amenities.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and engagement space are designed to provide a safe, open and inviting environment to allow residents to live independently while getting the support they need to transform their lives.

Sanderson Apartments

As part of our commitment to the community and to inclusiveness for all, we have built Sanderson Apartments, featuring permanent supportive apartment homes at the corner of S. Federal Blvd & W. Iowa Ave. 

When people are in their own homes and feel safe, they’re better able to access other social services to improve their well-being.

The Mental Health Center of Denver has successfully owned and operated residential homes and apartments for over 25 years, providing safe and affordable housing for our consumers throughout the city.

Permanent supportive housing allows residents to live independently, while getting the treatment they need to get better and transform their lives. 

Our permanent supportive housing facilities are designed to provide a safe, open and inviting environment that minimizes the effects of trauma, avoids any sense of confinement, and ensures that residents feel safe. The space is open and airy with as few walls as possible and clear sight lines throughout, making residents feel secure and safe while appearing ‘barrier-free.’

Of the dozens of new apartment buildings going up in Denver these days, one stands out.

The Sanderson Apartments on South Federal Boulevard feature trauma-informed design to accommodate those who experienced abuse and other ordeals when they were homeless. Architectural choices —  from the hallways, to the bedrooms — were made to make residents feel at home.

"I was abused as a child, and I left home when I was 13," says Gerry, who lives in the apartments and asked us not to use his last name for privacy reasons related to violence and drug use.
