Littleton’s Hidden Treasure is the Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center. Our wonderful property is nestled in charming downtown Littleton so our residents and their families and friends enjoy the best of both worlds – A small town feel with the heart of the big city. The Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center is a three story residential assisted living. The Center is a tax-credit financed development with 111 assisted living apartments for modest income adults over the age of 62. The maximum income for one person is $33,600 and for couples the maximum income is $38,400. All of the apartments are private, unfurnished studios and the Center offers three meals daily plus snacks, weekly laundry, weekly housekeeping, activities and other services.

Residents of the Center must be able to move without the assistance of Center personnel to all areas of the Center (using a walker, wheelchair, or other assistive device, if needed) and to perform all transfers (in and out of chair, bed, etc.) with no or minimal assistance from Center personnel.

The Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center provides fair and equitable treatment to all persons who apply for or receive housing and housing services from the Center. The Center’s rentals and housing services are available to all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, national origin. The Center also maintains a process for any program applicant or participant with a disability to request a reasonable accommodation, including but not limited to location of the individual’s unit or use of an assistance animal.

Many people may not realize that there is a unique and special history about the services that Libby Bortz Assisted Living brings to Littleton and the Denver metro area. The Center was built in 1994. It is a collaborative success for the Littleton community, which cooperated with the Littleton Housing Authority (now known as South Metro Housing Options) in addressing affordable housing for older adults needing some assistance. The Center is named for “Libby Bortz”, a local Littleton resident and social worker who was pivotal in recognizing the needs of modest-income adults over the age of 62 to have an affordable assisted living option. In appreciation of her many years of service and volunteering to the Littleton Housing Authority and the community, The Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center was named in her honor.
