Homeless Help

We work with a wide variety of service providers throughout the community who assist people who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of becoming homeless to provide needed resources and services.


Cold Weather Shelter Information

It is extremely dangerous to remain outside during winter storms. 

If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911. Anyone who needs a place to stay should seek shelter at one of Denver's area day and overnight shelters; please see below.

Learn more about snow closures, shelters, and additional services.
