Colorado Springs, Colorado
Village at the Bluffs is an amazing community for low-income seniors 62 years old and older. Seniors who live on fixed low incomes have difficulties finding affordable housing. Many seniors live under $10,000 a year and are homeless because housing is too expensive for them. The Village at the Bluffs offers subsidized housing and each senior pays around 30% of their income. It is safe and secure housing that offers more than a home but a community. We offer on site staff including a Service Coordinator. The Service Coordinator assists residents with getting the services they need to stay independent in their own homes. This includes but is not limited to home healthcare, meals on wheels, transportation to appointments and applying for benefits. We offer monthly resident luncheon meetings and bring in speakers for our residents on health and safety topics. Village at the Bluffs provides an exercise area with senior fitness equipment. We have a van to take residents shopping and on outings. We offer a resident association so our residents have a voice in their home and community.
We have seen residents come into our program who had been very isolated and alone and once they come to our community we have seen them thrive and alive again!
My name is Monica and I am the Executive Director at the Village at the Bluffs. I have been with the community since it opened in 2002. For 17 years I have been a part of the Bluffs. This has never been a job to me but a calling. I am very passionate about seniors and providing quality housing in a caring community.
My name is Larry, before coming to the Village at the Bluffs I was homeless. I feel very blessed to have a home to call my own. The building is beautiful and the staff is so supportive. When I arrived at the Bluffs I had no furniture. Monica, the Executive Director and the Board of Directors made sure I had a new bed. Monica also found me other pieces of furniture for my new apartment. The staff provides ongoing support such as bringing in speakers on health and safety topics for seniors. Every day I am thankful for this wonderful place.
I am Nancy Jo, and I consider it a blessing that I am at the Village at the Bluffs. This apartment complex has the greatest Administrative staff that cares for everyone, keeps the building in order and schedule different activities. I found it very easy to adjust and get involved. This year the Resident Association was formed and I was elected President. With the blessing of my Lord and the help of my family, Village at the Bluffs is the place I belong! I love living here!
