Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) is an innovative program that combines affordable housing with supportive services to help people lead more stable lives. PSH targets people who are homeless, have one or more disabilities, experience multiple barriers to housing, and need supportive services. When people know they have a safe place to live and sleep, their mental health, physical health and other needs can finally be addressed.

The PSH model has been shown to save communities money by reducing costs to various public service systems, including health care and emergency services.

Mason Place

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.

Redtail Ponds

Redtail Ponds opened in 2015 as Northern Colorado’s first Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) community. The community was designed using best practices  from across the country to meet the housing needs of veterans and people with disabilities who have experienced homelessness. With a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, the community offers homes for a mix of incomes along with individualized support services.
