We Create Solutions to Homelessness in Boulder

The Boulder Shelter for the Homeless is a Housing Focused, nonprofit shelter that creates solutions to homelessness through unrelenting empathy and collaboration, by leveraging resources to effect as many permanent exits from homelessness as possible.

By providing a variety of Housing Focused shelter programs, we create pathways to permanent housing for those who are experiencing homelessness in Boulder. Our approach is centered on providing people experiencing homelessness with safe and dignified housing as quickly as possible. Our Shelter programs use a comprehensive approach including mental health counseling, medical care, and intensive support by case managers to find housing, access to financial supports, and access to all available community resources.

Through compassion, innovation, and collaboration with government and regional partners,  we provide the support our clients need as they navigate the challenges of finding and maintaining stable housing.

What is Housing Focused Shelter?

Housing focused shelter reaches beyond short-term services to connect people to real, sustainable solutions. Housing focused is not housing-only. Outreach, engagement, sheltering, counseling, case management and services continue to be provided but are viewed as tools to help people end their homelessness through permanent housing rather than as solutions themselves. Learn More about Housing Focused Shelter
