Description: Homeward Pikes Peak is the focal point for our community response to solving the problem of homelessness. The goal is for our community to be a great place to overcome homelessness, but a difficult place to be intentionally homeless. Pikes Peak United Way helped create this organization, and provides offices and administrative support for the organization so that it can be successful in tackling this important issue.

Homeward Pikes Peak believes people can recover. Every day we house and counsel people struggling with homelessness and addiction because they often have no other options in Colorado Springs. We have a variety of housing programs for the homeless – one sober living, one for mentally ill adults and one for disabled veterans. Of the 1,171 homeless in Colorado Springs, 228 had a chronic substance abuse issues and 236 had a serious mental illness. We can only serve 84 people/families at a given time. We also operate an outpatient substance abuse clinic specializing in women’s services including pregnant women. We help people regardless of their ability to pay.  This creates a gap in funding and where we can use your help. We also save taxpayers over $2 million per year just in our housing programs by reducing ER visits, 911 calls, detox stays, and psychiatric hospitalizations. We create self-sufficiency, sober parents, effective employees and dignity.
