Individuals will work with a Navigation Specialist to develop a housing plan and can receive limited assistance to accomplish their plan. Overnight sleeping space will be available to qualified navigation participants who also need a place to stay during this short-term period.

Daytime Street Outreach

HOPE
Hours: Tuesdays & Fridays from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm
Contact: HOPE office at 720-494-4673 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm during weekdays

Note: Staff goes out into the community at various locations and meets people experiencing homelessness. Sites identified so far include local parks, library, and downtown coffee shops. The goal is to help individuals understand services that are available, how to access these services, and connect them with Coordinated Entry (CE) at OUR Center. Transportation to the OUR Center is offered as well as the option of HOPE staff accompanying people who are uncomfortable or reluctant to access CE unaccompanied.

Evening Search & Save

HOPE
Hours: Nightly from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Contact: 720-210-7217

Note: Volunteers for “search and save” look for vulnerable individuals in alleyways, in front of businesses, in parks, etc. This effort is designed to build trusting relationships with people experiencing homelessness and who are reluctant to access services. Over time, as trust is established, the intent is to connect at-risk individuals to services. Volunteers provide emergency transportation to nighttime navigation in severe weather.

Housing-focused Shelter

 Boulder Shelter for the Homeless
4869 North Broadway
Boulder, CO 80304
Phone: 303-442-4646

Note: Adults experiencing homelessness must be referred through Coordinated Entry to access Housing-focused Shelter.

Those participating in housing-focused shelter can remain at BSH until they have acquired stable housing.
