The Boulder Shelter for the Homeless


Program Program Program Program

Winter 2016-2017
Program Information

The Shelter currently offers several programs designed to meet the needs of its clients:

  • Boulder County Cares (BCC) street outreach program equips those living on the streets in winter with basic life-sustaining supplies, transportation, and referrals to appropriate services and agencies.
  • The Winter Sheltering program furnishes hot meals and a warm, safe place to spend the night for those who have no other options during the months of October through April.  Additionally, the Shelter is open each morning year-round to provide a hot breakfast, access to showers, and other limited services to those not staying overnight at the Shelter.
  • The Transition Program is a year-round service offered to homeless adults who are committed to regaining independent housing and who live drug- and alcohol-free, have sustainable income, and a clear budget and savings plan. The goal for the program is to serve homeless individuals in transition to permanent housing via case management and contract arrangements with the objective of clients developing individual life plans to identify and address issues that have led them to homelessness and to break the cycle of poverty.
  • Off-site longer-term housing for individuals and families is provided through Transitional Housing.
  • The Housing First program is a collaborative regional initiative emphasizing placement of Boulder County’s most chronically homeless individuals into permanent housing, supported by concentrated case management.
