Denver’s Road Home is the city of Denver's program to assist the homeless. Denver's Road Home is not a direct service provider, rather the program works to harness the power of the city's existing resources to provide coordinated assistane for those experiencing homelessness in the city.
We are committed to working to ensure that every homeless man, woman and child has an alternative to living on the streets. The success of Denver’s Road Home is thanks to a collaborative partnership among nonprofits, foundations, businesses, individuals, faith-based community, service providers, and government at all levels.

Our goals:

  • Increase the accessibility of services to Denver’s homeless, at-risk and indigent populations
  • Assist people who are homeless or at risk to obtain skills and knowledge necessary to participate in the workforce
  • Provide Denver residents facing homelessness more tools to keep them from ending up on the streets or in emergency shelters
  • Provide better access to supportive services that promote long-term stability and improved functioning for those in need and movement into permanent housing as soon as possible
  • Make safe and legal shelter beds and activities available for all populations both day and night until adequate permanent housing is in place
  • Build community awareness and support for coordinated responses to eliminate homelessness in 10 years
  • Improve public safety by increasing homeless outreach efforts to reduce panhandling, loitering, and crimes against people while better linkages are built between homeless people and service agencies
  • Reform Denver’s zoning, building, and development codes to facilitate an adequate supply of emergency and affordable housing
