2019 was another banner year for Maiker Housing Partners.
Having been a struggling single mom I know first-hand how hard it is to find safe and quality affordable family housing.
In October 2019, Maiker celebrated the grand opening of Crossing Pointe North, the first phase of a new multigenerational, affordable housing community in Thornton. Crossing Pointe features 64 apartment homes for low-income seniors earning 30, 40, 50 and 60 percent of the Area Median Income. This type of development is particularly needed in the Thornton community which has the highest median rent of all municipalities in Adams County.
In a unique demonstration of public-private partnership, Adams County gifted Maiker the Adams County Children & Family Services building to adaptively reuse and develop into the Caraway – a multi-family, mixed income community for residents of Adams County that also provides safe and affordable housing for young adults who are transitioning out of foster care. Following the donation of the building, Colorado Housing and Finance Authority awarded Maiker a low-income housing tax credit for the development during a highly competitive state 4% tax round in August 2019.
