The Boulder Shelter for the Homeless

Transition Program

Green Building

Program Goal: Clients have safe, temporary shelter; become more stable, and attain safe, sustainable housing upon exiting the program.


Transition Program residents work closely with Shelter case managers to determine what has led them to homelessness, and what steps they must take to overcome their situation. Transition Program residents must live drug and alcohol free, pay a weekly program fee, and abide by a budget and savings plan.  To qualify for the Transition Program residents must have sustainable income that can be verified and an obtainable transition plan. Program residents have the opportunity to stay in a semi-private dorm room. The year-round transition program has a maximum stay of nine months.

Anyone desiring to enter the Transition Program needs to schedule an intake appointment with a Shelter case manager. Clients currently staying at the Shelter can schedule an appointment by speaking with a staff member.
