Denver Non-Profit Converts Hotel To Micro-Apartments For Homeless
The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) bought and renovated a $8.4 million 139-room Denver Quality Inn and Suites to house the homeless, according to OutThereColorado.
John Parvensky has lead the local nonprofit organization since 1985 and this will be the nonprofit's 17th completed project. He hopes that providing homes for the homeless will help them rebuild their lives in the midst of Denver's urban camping ban.
The former Quality Inn and Suites is now known as Fusion Studios with 139 micro-apartments complete with a private bathroom, kitchenette, a bed, dresser, desk with a chair, a mini-fridge, a tv, microwave, and there's also a food pantry available.
In a local study there are at least 5,755 homeless people residing in Denver.
Fusion Studios potential tenants will pay 30% of their income for rent.
