About Urban Peak Housing

NOTE: Because of the great need for supportive housing in Denver, the wait lists for Urban Peak’s housing programs are currently closed. If you need emergency shelter for youth 20 years and under, please contact Urban Peak’s shelter here.

The ultimate goal of Urban Peak’s housing programs is to support you as you build the confidence and skills necessary to find and keep your own safe and stable housing.

In Urban Peak housing, you will receive flexible supportive services that honor your unique strengths and needs. You will have your own case manager who will work with you to identify your strengths and goals and help you obtain other services you may need.

Urban Peak owns and operates three apartment complexes: Rowan Gardens, the STAR (Starting Transition and Recovery) program, and Rocky Mountain Youth Housing. In addition, Urban Peak provides services in various apartments throughout the Denver metropolitan area through Denver’s Road Home Housing Program.

STAR (ages 18 through 24)
STAR is a sober supportive learning community with 16 units of housing where you can live and receive supportive services including one-on-one case management, weekly individual and group therapy for addiction recovery and mental illness, education and employment training, job readiness training and health care as you need it.

Rowan Gardens (ages 17 through 21)
Rowan Gardens is a supportive living community for youth who struggle with a mental, physical, or developmental disability with the goal to help you learn and grow toward independence. At Rowan Gardens, you will receive your own case manager and other services to support your journey, including mental health services, community groups, life skills groups, individual counseling, community dinners, and recreational activities.

Rocky Mountain Youth Housing (ages 16 through 24)
Rocky Mountain Youth Housing serves youth who are interested in participating in school, work and/or volunteer activities. At Rocky Mountain, you will learn how to access resources to help you meet your needs, work with a case manager to set goals and create a plan to move toward independence. At Rocky Mountain you will participate in group activities and classes to help build relationships with others in the community.

Road Home Housing Program (ages 18 through 24)
Through Road Home, we will help you lease a community apartment for one year in one of the approved locations in the Denver metropolitan area and will work with you to create your own service plan and meet weekly with the program’s case manager. As a part of the program, each tenant is asked to have a full-time schedule (32 hours a week or more) which can be a combination of work and school or just work.
