Shelters and Services

Anyone needing access to shelter or anyone who encounters someone who needs shelter access between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday can call 2-1-1 to be connected to available resources, including transportation assistance for those who are homeless and have disabilities. If it is an emergency, always call 9-1-1.

For after hours and weekend support for mental and behavioral health crises, contact the Colorado Crisis Line at 844-493-8255 or text “Talk” to 38255. 

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.
