Denver's Road Home oversees the city's investments into tools that help people experiencing homelessness. They partner with the community to provide resources to people who find themselves without a home to help them through what is hopefully a temporary experience with homelessness.
Denver’s Road Home is a critical partner in the Denver Metro region’s effort to connect people experiencing homelessness to housing available through the OneHome regional program. Through partnerships with organizations like the Denver Rescue Mission, Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, Urban Peak, The Delores Project, and others, we are able to provide overnight shelter accommodations for hundreds of people each night.
During extreme heat, people experiencing homelessness can go to one of the several day shelters in the city. Find locations and times using the map below.
Denver’s Road Home also partners with St. Francis Center, Salvation Army, Urban Peak, and the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless to provide search and rescue and outreach services to people who do not access shelter or other supportive services. This can include visits to neighborhoods throughout the community to connect directly with people experiencing homelessness right where they are staying to try and connect them to vital resources like potential housing options, vital records, legal identification, food or medical assistance, behavioral or mental health services, and other essential services.
