Our Program

It’s not just a place to sleep.
We provide a temporary home, a place for new beginnings.

Each of our residents is matched with a case manager who helps him/her navigate our 120-day Residential Program. Each resident commits to goals that will help them obtain stable income and housing.

We supply about 25% of the shelter housing available to families in the Denver area.
