Mission Statement

The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless works collaboratively toward the prevention of homelessness and the creation of lasting solutions for homeless and at-risk families, children and individuals throughout Colorado.

Organization History

The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless was organized in 1984 to create opportunities and support for the growing number of people experiencing homelessness in Colorado. Our programs include 1) Comprehensive primary health care for the homeless at Stout Street Health Center and several satellite sites; 2) Mental Health Services for homeless individuals; 3) Substance Treatment Services; 4) Renaissance Children's Center, providing early childhood education and childcare; 5) Family Supportive Services including emergency and supportive housing services; 6) Rural Initiatives providing housing with supportive services in rural communities; 7) Permanent supportive housing communities providing housing for more than 2,300 formerly homeless and at-risk neighbors every night; 8) Job training and employment services; 9) Denver Street Outreach Collaborative, providing coordinated outreach and engagement services targeted to chronically homeless individuals living on the streets; 10) Dental Clinic, providing emergency and restorative dental care for homeless persons; and 11) Children's program, providing pediatric health care and parenting support for homeless children.

Testimonials

Angela Ybarra: In January of 2013 Angela and her boyfriend Felton found themselves living in a hotel room with their two children. They had nowhere to go until a friend referred them to the Coalition. Angela and Felton met with a case manager to discuss their situation. They are now in Coalition housing and their kids are in day care at the Coalition's Renaissance Children's Center. Angela and Felton are so thankful for the Coalition for getting them back on their feet. Felton now has a job and the family is looking for a house with a yard. They just want their kids to have a better life.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "...this Coalition is a perfect model for the country. It can move quickly...and has the agility to get things done with fresh new thinking, in an entrepreneurial way, meeting the needs of the homeless and those who need access to health care...it is of national significance, a model to the nation on how to get the job done."

Albus Brooks, Former Denver City Councilman District 8: "The true measure of a city is how it cares for its poorest residents in moments of need. Great cities understand the importance of partnering with effective organizations; Denver is fortunate to have the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless at the table as we work hard to provide services for those that need them. I fully support their work and I am thankful for what they have done for the Mile High City"

John Kelly: John is a Colorado Coalition for the Homeless Board Member. He's a veteran, an accomplished public speaker and a published author. His short stories have been published in several literary magazines. John is also formerly homeless. He served nine years in the U.S. Navy. He suffered a traumatic brain injury during his service and was later discharged due to mental illness. After becoming homeless, the Coalition helped him into a housing program for homeless veterans. Today, John helps the Coalition's senior leadership develop programs and make decisions that will continue to create lasting solutions to homelessness in Colorado.
