Archway Celebrates Grand Opening of Robinson Place
At the recent grand opening of Robinson Place, Archway celebrated the opening of our ninth community, our eighth in the Denver Metro area. Robinson Place offers 67 units of affordable housing for adults ages 62+ in Lakewood, making it Archway’s second community for older adults.
Like all of Archway’s communities, Robinson Place provides housing for low-to-moderate income individuals and families that earn between 30-60% of the Area Median Income. Upon qualifying for housing, residents could choose one of six unique floor plans, including a handful of ADA-compatible units. Of the 67 apartments, 59 are one-bedroom and eight are two-bedroom.
At Robinson Place, every resident has access to an on-site Supportive Services Coordinator who organizes community events, no cost food programs, community outings, and health and wellness activities. There are also 15 units reserved for the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. Through this program, homeless veterans receive rental assistance along with case management and clinical services.
Every service made available to residents is to ensure that they feel safe, supported and at home. This was the mission of our late co-founder, Robinson “Robb” Lapp, this community’s namesake. Robb followed a lifelong commitment to improving the lives of the individuals and families around him, providing the necessary housing and supportive services that community members needed to meet their goals.
In Jefferson County, more than 20,000 units of affordable housing are needed across all income levels, while 120,000 units are needed across Colorado. Robinson Place’s 67 units are only a fraction of the need, but the community represents a step in the right direction toward remedying Jefferson County’s housing crisis and Colorado’s growing wealth gap.
