DENVER - A group is doing a renovation of Beacon Place, a transitional facility for veterans and homeless adults with disabilities, Wednesday morning.
Beacon Place serves several purposes: It is transitional housing for homeless veterans, homeless women with mental illness, homeless adults with disabilities, and also houses a 24-hour respite program for those who are released from the hospital after surgery/illness but are not healthy enough to return to the streets.
Each year, the American Institute of Architects does a charity project in advance of their national conference. The conference is in Denver this year, and the Coalition was chosen for the AEC Cares makeover. Beacon Place is in pretty rough shape, and this will significantly improve the environment - indoors and outdoors - for some of Denver's most vulnerable citizens.
