HOPE | Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement

A nonprofit organization

HOPE provides basic needs for unhoused people to break out of homelessness. 


"Today, I am sending you this message of appreciation and gratitude as I have moved into my new home."

"I truly miss your stern determination and foresight in so far as what I needed to do to get to where I am at today. I miss your friendship and the confidence that you showed me, however, without those important factors I would have likely remained in the shelters and on the streets."

"I feel very blessed to have fallen into the hands and guidance of everyone from Hope."

A Community That Cares


HOPE provides basic needs for people to break out of homelessness.

Background Statement

A group of individuals came together in the frigid winter of 2007 after 5 people died of exposure-related illnesses in Boulder County. These volunteers launched a year-round street outreach program in Longmont to assist homeless individuals and families, making sure they would survive the Colorado cold, and formed HOPE - Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement that same year.

Today, 16 years on, and HOPE is the only Overnight Shelter offered 365 days a year in Longmont, in addition to Emergency Shelter, Street Outreach, an Outreach Center, and Housing Advocacy. In 2022-23, HOPE helped 140+ people exit homelessness through it's programming--getting folks of the streets for good.
