Opened in July 2017, Beloved Community Tiny Home Village was created as an innovative approach to house those experiencing homelessness. The village originally consisted of 11 sleeping units, a shared bathing facility and a community gathering space and was housed on ULC’s land at Blake TOD. Beloved Community leased the land for $1 per month until the village moved to their new location in Globeville in 2019. The tiny home village is the first of its kind in Colorado, and has been an extremely successful transitional housing model.
