The Project

Our first project is an apartment building with 36-48 apartments. 50% of the apartments are allocated for adults with developmental disabilities and the rest for tenants from the general population.

Year One

Step One: Land

Columbine Hills Church in Littleton has indicated a willingness to sell or  lease 1.3 acres of land which would be perfect for Independence House.

                          Legal Documents                                                  $ 5,000*

                          Down payment                                                      $ 100,000*

Step Two: Architect

We will need an inspired and talented architect to design our building. Requests for proposals have been sent to 10 architects selected from a carefully compiled list of candidates.                                                                                           

                          Selection of Architect and First Renderings             $ 100,000*


Step Three: Project Planning

We have engaged the Community Capital Corporation as our financial, political and development advisors. Their team, headed by Michele Tonti, will guide us through government-funding opportunities and the complexities of bringing Independence House into being.                                                                                       

                          Project Management Fees – Year One                    $ 50,000*

Step Four: Public Awareness and Fund Raising

It takes money to make money! We are fortunate to have a team of marketing, event, and grant-writing experts to lead us in our multi-pronged fund raising efforts.

                          Marketing Services – Year One                              $ 15,000*
