Mission Statement

The mission of the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless is to provide safe shelter, food, support services, and an avenue to self-sufficiency for homeless adults in our community.

Organization History

During the winter of 1982, in response to the death of a local homeless veteran who died of exposure in downtown Boulder, a group of concerned citizens established the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. Since then, the Shelter has continued to expand its programs and services in response to the emergent needs of the homeless population in our community.

The Shelter has five primary goals which correspond to the Shelter's five key programs:

1) Save lives;

2) Provide emergency housing during the winter months of October through April for up to 160 homeless individuals per night;

3) Serve individuals year-round in transition to permanent housing via case management and contract arrangements;

4) Enhance the ability of homeless individuals and families in Boulder County to achieve self-sufficiency through the provision of transitional housing and supportive services;

5) Placement of chronically homeless individuals into permanent housing, complemented by appropriate intensive support services.
