Program Goal: Clients have life-sustaining supplies, transportation and referrals from October through April


Boulder County Cares (BCC) is the street outreach program of the Boulder Shelter. This program utilizes trained volunteers that canvass the community every winter evening, distributing blankets, gloves, hats, and other warm clothing, and providing food to unsheltered homeless people who are living on the streets. BCC clients may also receive, when appropriate, transportation to the Shelter or other local care providers.

Boulder County Cares operates from October 1 through April 30 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. If you see a homeless person in need during these hours, please call the BCC cell phone at (303) 358-7036 to request assistance.

For more information about BCC, please call 303-468-4322

2015-2016 Blanket Roundup

November 23, 2015 - January 2, 2016

Last winter, BCC distributed hundreds of blankets to unsheltered homeless people.  And now we urgently need to replenish our supply of blankets.  Please consider dropping off any blankets you can spare at one of our collecting partners (below), until      January 2, 2016.

Your blanket may well get someone through a very cold winter night, even save a life!

Thank you for your compassion and support.
