The mission of the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless is to create avenues to stable housing for our community's homeless adults, from a foundation of supportive and safe shelter.

Since then, the Shelter has continued to expand its programs and services in response to the emergent needs of the homeless population in our
The Shelter has the following primary goals:
1) Serve individuals in year-round sheltering as they transition to independent housing through case management services.
2) Place chronically homeless, highly vulnerable, individuals in permanent supportive housing with supportive services.
3) Act as a liaison for increasing access to housing resources in our community.
