Gazette Premium Content Denver considers housing immigrant children

Associated Press Published: July 18, 2014

DENVER — Denver officials say they're considering offering to take care of some of the immigrant children who have overwhelmed border facilities in recent months.

Denver Department of Human Services spokeswoman Ana Mostaccero told The Associated Press on Friday that the department is in the process of applying for a three-year federal grant to house the children. She said the department is still doing feasibility studies and consulting with other city agencies and hasn't submitted the application yet.

If the city applies and wins a grant, the children would be placed in the city's existing Family Crisis Center. It has bedrooms, classrooms and a dining hall and is only partially being used now.

The city has until Aug. 6 to submit an application.
