Mission Statement

To provide persons with mental health, substance use disorders and other special needs with affordable housing and services designed to meet their physical, social, and psychological needs, and promote their health, security and happiness.

History and Overview

REDI Is a 501C3 tax exempt nonprofit organization that in 1978 began providing affordable housing for the mental health programs of Denver Health and Hospitals. Their mental health clients were unable to secure affordable housing and this was interfering with their mental health care and overall wellbeing. REDI, with the aid of a $500 startup grant, took the lead in securing Section 8 rent subsidies and developing housing. Today, REDI Corporation remains committed to its mission and is proud have acquired and developed nine projects. Collectively REDI currently provides homes to 157 residents at any one time.

The funding that Denver Health and Hospitals received for services went to the Mental Health Center of Denver (MHCD) in 1989. REDI has partnered with MHCD since that time with MHCD referring clients and providing supportive services to REDI residents. The population served includes people suffering from mental health and substance abuse disorders and other special needs who receive services from MHCD.

These efforts result in a reduction of homelessness, of overuse of hospital emergency room services, and a reduction in the use of the criminal justice and human service systems. Simultaneously, the dignity, self-worth and health of the individual resident is enhanced.

REDI Corporation has partnered with Ross Management for nearly 30 years to manage REDI properties.
