Housing Catalyst’s Mason Place is receiving recognition from respected professional organizations in the affordable housing community. After first being honored with a Leadership Through Partnership Award from Colorado NAHRO in November 2021, Housing Catalyst went on to win three additional awards for Mason Place in May 2022.
Mountain Plains NAHRO Awards
Housing Catalyst was honored with two awards at the Colorado and Mountain Plains NAHRO Annual Conference. The first, a Project Award, recognized the unique design, construction, and programs that help residents feel at home in Mason Place. The second, a Partnership Award, honored the many community partnerships that allow Housing Catalyst to provide the best possible support to Mason Place residents.
Permanent Supportive Housing Program Manager Daniel Covey and PSH Clinical Manager Brenna Rush accepted the awards on Housing Catalyst’s behalf.
Housing Colorado Eagle Award
After being nominated for a 2022 Eagle Award in both the Project and Program categories, Housing Colorado honored Mason Place with a special award honoring both the development of the new community and the programming that directly impacts residents. The organization recognized that both physical environment and supportive programming are key to keeping residents stably housed and providing better access to health care, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, and other resources to help residents reach their goals.
Representing Housing Catalyst at the event were members of Housing Catalyst’s Board of Commissioners, the Housing Catalyst Executive Team, and staff members from Development, Housing Assistance Programs, Human Resources, Property Operations and Asset Management, and Resident Services.
Mason Place is a 60-apartment Permanent Supportive Housing community that opened in midtown Fort Collins in January 2021. Based on the principle that stable housing better equips people to overcome some of the root causes of homelessness, the community blends affordable housing with individualized support services for people with disabilities and veterans who have been experiencing homelessness. The built environment combines beautiful design, livability, and sustainability with trauma-informed design features that offer residents a sense of safety, comfort, privacy, and security.
