Homelessness can impact anyone!

In 2022, an estimated 140 families (consisting of 400 adults and children) and more than 800 single adults will stay with HomewardBound. Your support will change the lives of these families and individuals experiencing homelessness in Mesa County.   You will make it possible for them to find a safe place to sleep, food to eat, and access to the vital supports and services they need to move from surviving to thriving!


"Catholic Outreach couldn't help us financially, but they told us about HomewardBound. I felt like my prayers had been answered. The first night we spent in town had been at the river and … It was not safe, I was concerned for my wife. But my instincts told me the shelter would be better. If it wasn't for this safe place and the staff opening their hearts to us, I am not sure what we would have done."


From surviving to thriving; changing the perception of homelessness.

Background Statement

The Grand Junction Community Homeless Shelter was formed in 1998 by a coalition including St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, the Grand Junction Housing Authority, the Salvation Army and Grand Valley Catholic Outreach in response to a critical need for winter night shelter for the homeless in our community.

Today, HomewardBound of the Grand Valley operates as an independent non-profit and is the only year-round homeless shelter within a 200-mile radius of Grand Junction. We provide emergency shelter and access to transitional services for up to 270 individuals per night.
