Denver’s Road Home invites you to participate in our Givers Summit.
Community connections are vital to creating a better future for every Denver resident. Be a giver by investing in a supported and connected future for every person in need. We want your stories, experiences, challenges and passion for in-kind giving in Denver.
On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Denver’s Road Home will host a summit for community-based organizations, individuals, neighborhoods, city agencies and other stakeholders to improve coordination and collaboration to better serve our community.
We want to hear from you! What has been successful and fulfilling? What has been complicated or frustrating? How does giving affect your organization, your neighborhood, your business and—not least—your life?
We’re organizing a limited number of hourlong sessions allowing stakeholders to engage with communities around the issue of giving in Denver. If you're interested in presenting, please download the call for presentations document (a PDF below) and submit the required information to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business on Tuesday, January 15.
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.
Project Homless Connect 2018 was a huge success! Thank you to the more than 850 volunteers and more thatn 100 service providers who donated their time, energy, skills, and smiles to the more thatn 1,400 guests who came out. More than 500 resumes were created and more than 150 people were offered jobs. Thank you to our partners, including Mile High United Way, We Don't Waste, and Regis University.
During extreme cold weather, 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.
Thank you to those who applied for the city's new Advisory Committee for Housing the Homeless; the application period is now over. The selection committee will be meeting soon to review applications. The committees first meeting will be announced shortly. Stay tuned!
