Extended Stay Program
All services offered at our Extended Stay Program are available in English and Spanish.
Launched in 2018, SafeHouse Denver’s Extended Stay Program is open to current SafeHouse Denver Emergency Shelter residents who are out of crisis but require additional time, between one to three months, to pursue affordable housing, employment, child care and other resources essential to establishing stability. The six-unit apartment building offers families privacy and independence as they work on their self-identified goals and continue to heal from the trauma of abuse.
Our Extended Stay Program serves as a stepping stone from our emergency shelter facility to safe, long-term or permanent housing for survivors of domestic violence and their children. This trauma-informed environment provides current SafeHouse Denver Emergency Shelter residents* with safe, secure, rent-free, and independent living in fully-furnished two bedroom/one bath apartments. Average length of stay is one to three months with extensions being granted on a case-by-case basis. Like our shelter, the location of the Extended Stay Program facility is confidential to ensure the safety of residents and their children.
While the Extended Stay Program offers independent living, residents will have regular contact with a Case Manager to support them in achieving their self-determined goals for stability. Services will include individual counseling, support groups, advocacy services, and referrals to stability-related resources both at SafeHouse Denver and through our many community partners.
*Only current SafeHouse Denver Emergency Shelter residents are eligible to apply for this program. Extended Stay Program residents must have an income stream and a specific action plan reviewed by the Director of Shelter Services and the Extended Stay Program Case Manager. If you are a current resident at the SafeHouse Denver Emergency Shelter and are interested in learning more about our Extended Stay Program, please speak directly with your SafeHouse Denver Advocate.
