Redtail Ponds Grand Opening

On March 9, 2015, FCHA hosted an open house to celebrate the opening of Redtail Ponds.Click here for highlights that were featured at the event. After a year of construction, a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy was issued and the first resident moved in on March 11th. Landscaping and finishing touches are still underway, but the beautiful building is now a safe and healthy place for many to call home.

Redtail Ponds Development

To achieve the next major goal of the Homeward 2020 Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, FCHA and partners developed Northern Colorado’s first Permanent Supportive Housing program using best practice models proven effective throughout the country. Permanent supportive housing is an innovative and proven solution to some of communities' toughest problems. It combines affordable housing with services that help people who face the most complex challenges to live with stability, autonomy and dignity.

The FCHA Redtail Ponds development is a mixed-income community with 40 units for formerly homeless individuals and 20 units for individuals earning up to 50% of the Area Median Income. Each independent apartment features a full kitchen and bathroom. Supportive services include case management, life skills coaching, and/or therapeutic services and empower and equip residents with the skills needed to live with greater self-determination and independence.
