The Beloved Community Village is exploring a move to Globeville.

 

Colorado Village Collaborative exists to create and operate transformational housing communities for people exiting homelessness and entering into housing. This model is built on the foundations of community, healing and opportunity.

We believe that housing is a human right and work from that paradigm to build cost effective, time efficient housing that facilitates safety, stability, and healing in a supportive, non-violent environment built upon the foundation of mutual responsibility.

Myths and Realities of Tiny Homes

This video was designed as a creative way to deconstruct a few common misperceptions of what a Tiny Home Village is. Through a visual and audio experience we are hoping to educate and spread more awareness of the reality of the Beloved Community Village.


I’m on my journey to where I feel is right...I haven’t given up on my dream, I’m still going towards it.
— Bobby, Beloved Community Village Resident

Proposed Site

After months of community engagement, we are hoping to continue our efforts to relocate our current village to the proposed 4400 N Pearl St. site located in Globeville. This location is ideal since it is only located 1/2 mile from the current village. This allows minimal disruption to the daily lives of the residents to continue work and school without the inconvenience of being displaced.

Letters of Support from Globeville Residents

Globeville Engagement

As part of our community engagement efforts, we previously hosted three Globeville community meetings where we captured the responses of the residents in order to formulate them into a document that allows the neighbors to feel involved and integrated into the community agreement.


I’m thrilled that the city is able to offer this land that will allow the Village to continue providing a unique and dignified housing option to people who have experienced homelessness.
— Mayor Michael B. Hancock

Design Charet

In collaboration with Shopworks Architecture and a few Globeville neighbors, we were able to review the design for the landscaping of the Beloved Community Village at 4400 N Pearl St. Not only does activating a dark, vacant lot bring more light to the neighborhood, but it also allows for the addition of beauty, greenery and life to the area.
