Recuperative Care Center and Supportive Housing Opens in Five Points
Posted: November 11, 2022
City leaders joined with the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless today to celebrate the launch of a first-of-its kind mixed-use development to serve the housing and healthcare needs of people experiencing homelessness. The Renaissance Legacy Lofts and Stout Street Recuperative Care Center, located at 2175 California St., will meet the immediate health care needs for 500 people experiencing homelessness annually through medical respite and recuperative care, while also providing 98 units of affordable and supportive housing.
“Legacy Lofts is a game-changing resource for our community. Today’s opening underscores our housing first approach and is a huge step forward in building a healthy, housed, and connected Denver,” Mayor Michael B. Hancock said. “Housing and health are inextricably linked, and Legacy Lofts will stand as a beacon of opportunity for our unhoused neighbors for decades to come.”
The Stout Street Recuperative Care Center fills a significant gap in services for people who are healthy enough to leave the hospital but do not have homes to assist them in recovering safely. By late 2022, the center will provide 75 medical respite beds for people experiencing homelessness who, if housed, would be discharged to home but who cannot be safely discharged to the streets, nor to shelters, which are not equipped to deal with medical needs.
