Last year, there were more than 250 youth in our community without homes or guardians. We all want better for them.

Together we provide homeless, unaccompanied youth on the Western Slope with safety, warmth and hope for a new day.

“The Karis apartments will bring hope to our most vulnerable youth before they face a lifetime of homelessness.”

— David Scanga, Karis Board Chair

“The building was designed to evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity for residents and visitors alike. We tried to create a place that blends into its environment yet creates a distinct impression for those who experience it.”

— Stacey, Karis Apartments Architect

Apartments will have full kitchens & single bathrooms & will be fully furnished. 

The building will have a single point of entry and be professionally managed. There will be a large, secure, south-facing patio off the main room and more than 30,000 square feet of outdoor space for a dog run, children’s play equipment, and recreational activities.

The building will have more than 3,000 square feet of common space for optional services, community gatherings, electronic gaming, art, and cooking.
