Kentucky Circle Village
Kentucky Circle Village (KCV) has been a part of the outreach mission of First Plymouth for more than 50 years. It was established in 1959 to meet the growing housing needs of seniors with limited incomes and remains an important part of the affordable housing movement in the Denver metropolitan area.
KCV is located in the Glendale neighborhood (although technically in the city of Denver) on Kentucky Avenue between Colorado Boulevard and Cherry Creek South Drive. It is a community of 31 buildings and 171 apartments on eight and a half beautifully landscaped acres, providing affordable independent living facilities for over 175 seniors over the age of 62.
KCV was developed, and continues to be owned and managed by Senior Homes of Colorado, Inc., a nonprofit corporation formed and controlled by three church entities: First Plymouth Congregational Church, the American Baptist Churches of the Rocky Mountains (primarily represented by Calvary Baptist Church), and Green Mountain Presbyterian Church. Each church nominates several members to the board of directors; First Plymouth’s representatives are Phil Thompson, who serves as president of the board, Ardy Cowperthwaite, Adrienne Andrews Glenn, and Liz Mascitelli, who chairs the personnel committee. At present, Julie Hoebel is serving as the Administrator of Kentucky Circle Village.
Although development of the complex has been funded by a series of community bond issues and special loans from federal, state, and city housing agencies, there remains a pressing need for financial assistance for some of our residents who are on extremely limited incomes. The Henry G. Smith Fund has been established specifically to help these residents, and all contributions to the fund are very much appreciated. Check donations may be written to Senior Homes of Colorado and mailed directly to Kentucky Circle Village (4901 E. Kentucky Circle, Denver 80246) or left at the church office. KCV is a 501(c)(3) organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible.
