Project status: Opened February, 2020

Providence at the Heights

Aurora, CO
Providence at the Heights is a 50-unit permanent supportive housing project located in Aurora, CO. It is designed for individuals and families who have a history of homelessness or who are at-risk of becoming homeless and will benefit from supportive services. Generally, these individuals and families have faced multiple barriers to obtaining or maintaining housing due to: criminal histories, chronic and/or persistent mental illness, alcohol and/or substance abuse, health issues, unemployment and/or underemployment.

Second Chance Center will serve as the lead service provider. Additional partners include Aurora Mental Health Center, Elevation Christian Church and Family Tree. Shopworks Architecture is the designer of the building, Calcon is the general contractor and BlueLine Development developed and will property manage the 50 units in this building. 49 units will be for formerly homeless individuals and families who are in need of services due to behavioral health needs and involvement in the criminal justice system. The 50th unit will be a “guest unit” for people who come to visit in the hopes of reuniting with a family member living at PATH. BeauxSimone Consulting has offered consulting services to Second Chance Center since 2016, and will continue to work with staff as the building opens in early 2020.

Winner of the Housing Colorado’s 2020 Eagle Award

The PATH building, a development of Second Chance Center, was the brainchild of Executive Director Hassan Latif who has spent years helping those coming out of incarceration with an incredible menu of services that offer in part employment services and opportunities, counseling, transportation and housing, mentoring as well as case management that addresses socioeconomic challenges as the community’s premiere reentry program for formerly incarcerated individuals.
