DENVER — Sunday marked the grand opening of the St. Francis Apartments at Cathedral Square in Denver. The apartments will be occupied solely by the homeless.

There are an estimated 5,000 people experiencing homelessness in the Denver metro area and finding affordable housing is a constant struggle for the city.

St. John’s Cathedral and the St. Francis Center are looking to fill at least part of that void with the $10 million project.

There are about 50 apartment units inside the building, each about 500 square feet. They come completely furnished.

The building was paid for mostly through tax credits, with some help from the city or state.
