The City and County of Denver and Denver’s Road Home are working hand-in-hand with homeless shelter providers to launch its Winter Overflow Shelter Operation, which will remain in effect through April 30.
Thanks to support from the city, the following organizations will provide additional overnight shelter to homeless individuals.
“We are fortunate to have a strong network of caring homeless providers that can provide shelter, which is a critical and life saving need for hundreds of people in our community,” Denver’s Road Home Executive Director Bennie Milliner said. “Together, we want to make sure that our most vulnerable population has access to a safe and warm place to sleep at night.”
The Salvation Army, Capitol Hill United Ministries Women’s Homeless Initiative, Catholic Charities, Denver Rescue Mission, The Delores Project, Volunteers of America, Urban Peak and several smaller organizations will continue to operate its year-round shelters.
People needing a safe a warm place to sleep at night should call Mile High United Way at 2-1-1 to learn how to get connected to shelter.
Many day and overnight shelters need new or gently used coats, gloves, hats, socks, blankets and toiletry donations.
