Colorado Coalition for the Homeless

A nonprofit organization

We believe homelessness is solvable.     

Homes, Health and Hope are the answer.  We provide all three.

Homes: More than shelter

A home – a place that feels safe, a place with community – is essential for long-term well-being.  

We do much more than build and manage housing. We create communities of neighbors –     communities that support each resident’s success.  

Every night more than 4,500 households have safe, affordable homes because of the Coalition’s work.

The people we serve are as diverse as our community: individuals and families, veterans and people with disabilities; people who need a lot of help and those who need just a little.

Health: Healing the whole person

Access to comprehensive healthcare is critical, too.   

People experiencing homelessness often have complex physical and mental health needs.

Our expert health care teams integrate primary and behavioral health care, dental and vision services, and extensive treatment programs for those recovering from substance use disorders.

Each year, more than 14,000 people receive health services through the Coalition, where health and healing are paramount.

Hope: A better life is possible

Treating everyone with dignity and respect affirms their capabilities and fosters their hope for the future. 

Housing and health care open the door to other resources and services that support a person’s long-term stability.

Vocational Services staff guide clients to become job-ready and connect them with employers for skilled, sustainable employment that pays above-minimum wage.

Teachers at our Renaissance Children’s Center, specially trained in helping children overcome the trauma of homelessness, provide child care that also enables parents to work or complete their education.

Peer Mentors, valued staff members who have lived experience of homelessness, help others access the resources needed to attain and sustain lasting stability.


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.
