Description: Shelter: Every day of the year the Urban Peak Shelter is a warm, safe option to another night on the streets.

Shelter

Urban Peak has a 40 bed overnight shelter for youth ages 15 through 20. We are open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, and offer a safe and welcoming environment where we respect the rights and identities of the youth we serve. We are a safe place for LGBTIQ youth and accept their orientation and identity.
While youth are at the Shelter, they will work with a case manager to identify strengths and to create an individualized service plan based on the principles of trauma-informed care to move toward safe and stable housing. This may include providing youth with family mediation services or help accessing their own apartment through Urban Peak.
At the Shelter, we offer caring, supportive staff; a medical clinic three half-days a week that gives access for vaccinations, HIV and pregnancy testing, specific health screenings, and more; three meals a day and snacks in between; group activities such as mountain bike excursions, hiking, sports, art and referrals to additional requested services.

Drop In Center & Outreach

Urban Peak’s Drop-In Center is a refuge for youth experiencing homelessness. The Drop-In Center provides a safe haven where youth can get their most basic needs met including:
    A temporary respite from the outdoor elements
    A hot breakfast served Monday through Friday
    Lockers to keep their possessions safe
    Laundry services
    Showers
    First aid supplies
In addition to helping youth get their basic needs met, the Drop-In Center and Outreach staff offer a listening ear, guidance, and support, and lead essential life skills courses in subjects such as healthy relationships, sex education, finances, and more to help many of the youth we serve on their individual paths to self-sufficiency. Staff also work to provide crisis intervention, basic needs resources and counseling, and appropriate referrals and try to be navigators and supporters for youth who are accessing a multitude of services with many long lines and wait lists.
The Outreach team at Urban Peak works to meet young people who may be experiencing homelessness and are living on the streets of Denver where they are in their life’s journey. Their primary goal is to cultivate healthy, trust-filled relationships and engage homeless youth on the streets with the ultimate hope of being a resource that can help them achieve the goals they identify for themselves.
