Denver Coliseum will Remain Open 24/7 through Saturday, Feb. 17

With temperatures expected to reach overnight lows of 20 degrees Friday night, the Denver Department of Housing Stability (HOST) is extending the current 24/7 cold weather shelter activation through 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 17 at the Denver Coliseum, 4600 N. Humboldt St. People experiencing homelessness should walk up to the location directly.

Cold weather poses a serious danger to people who are unsheltered, and the city encourages people to come inside.

Individuals in need of shelter can also be referred to the city’s “front door” shelter access points (denvergov.org/findshelter), which are also expanding their capacity for the cold weather. Front door shelters include:

  • For individual men – Lawrence Street Community Center, 2222 Lawrence St.
  • For individual women – Samaritan House, 2301 Lawrence St.
  • For youth ages 15-20 – Urban Peak, 2100 Stout St.
  • Families in need of shelter should call the Connection Center at 303-295-3366.
