Permanent Supportive Housing
A safe home for the most vulnerable people in our community.
WHAT IS PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING?
Our Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Program provides long-term affordable housing for low-income people with disabilities and/or elderly. Many PSH residents are on fixed incomes and face mental or physical health disabilities that make it difficult for them to maintain stable housing.
PSH residents pay roughly 30% of adjusted monthly gross income for rent.
people with disabilities lived at The Inn in 2019.
WHO DO WE SERVE?

“You feel worthless...useless". These are the words of Maureen telling us about her clinical depression that led her to homelessness. Maureen always worked hard until her depression became overwhelming and she was nearly on the street.
Maureen came to live at The Inn Between where she found the support she needed. “When I first stepped into my room at the Inn, it was such a relief. I had a place to live where I could find myself again. I found helpful people who never disparaged me."
The Micah Homes Project
- Permanent Supportive Housing for the elderly and disabled -
A Community Effort
In February 2016, United Church of Christ Longmont committed to transfer 1/4 acre parcel of church land to The Inn Between to construct six permanent, supportive apartment units for low-income, elderly or disabled individuals. The project is known as Micah Homes; a name is derived from the Book of Micah about overcoming injustice and defending the rights of the poor. The Micah Home project has become a true community effort and serves as a model for how community partnerships can serve those in need.
A Place to Call Home
The Micah Homes are complete, and residents have moved in!
In total, the Micah Homes include:
4 1-Bedroom Units
2 2-Bedroom Units
A Community Room

The Micah Homes Project was made possible through the generosity of our many project partners. With major contributions from local churches, small businesses, government agencies, and individual donors, this has been a truly community-wide effort. THANK YOU to everyone who contributed!

Roberta & Paul's Story
Roberta and Paul were a hard-working couple who once owned a house. All of that changed when Paul was involved in an accident that left him permanently disabled. Bills began to pile up and before they knew it they lost their home. They spent 17 months living in a camper before they found refuge at The Inn Between.
Roberta and Paul are the types of people that go out of their way to help others and have a gift for creating a community. They are very grateful to have a permanent, affordable Micah Home apartment.
