The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST - — Cañon City Daily Record

A va­cant patch of land in Cañon City that in­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies have made their tem­po­rary home by pitch­ing tents and park­ing bro­k­endown RVs for years will be home to a three-story, 30unit sup­port­ive hous­ing com­plex by next year.

Jour­ney Home, lo­cated on the east side of town, also will con­nect for­merly home­less adults and fam­i­lies with case man­age­ment, men­tal health treat­ment and vo­ca­tional train­ing.

The com­plex, ex­pected to open in June, will cost about $9.5 mil­lion to build.

“Jour­ney Home will pro­vide safe and af­ford­able hous­ing to Fre­mont County’s most vul­ner­a­ble cit­i­zens, many who are con­sid­ered to be su­per-users or fre­quent users of our com­mu­nity’s re­sources,” said DeeDee Clement, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for Loaves and Fishes Min­istries of Fre­mont County.
