The research conducted reveals that there are 854 people experiencing homelessness in Jefferson County in Colorado. Nearly 16% of these people are above the age of 55. To reduce these troubling numbers, a new affordable housing complex called Robinson Place is coming up in Lakewood. 

One of the homeless people, Jaclyn is 63 years old and feels that she would be homeless if it weren’t for the center. She has served in the U.S. Army for 10 years and two years in the National Guard. After that, she went from shelter to shelter and now is one of the residents of Robinson Place. 

The affordable housing complex building has 67 housing units for the ones aged 62 years and above and 15 housing units are for the homeless veterans. 

Robinson Place was built by Archway Communities with the help of federal low-income housing tax credits. 

The CEO of the state also realizes that there is a shortage of affordable housing and the only way to build these projects and make them affordable is by seeking federal, state, and local support. It is because there is more need for affordable housing.
