Boulder County Ten-Year Plan to Address Homelessness
This plan provides a blueprint for how Boulder County communities will work together to prevent homelessness, address issues that keep people in homelessness and create housing and supportive services needed to end homelessness. It commits to seeking long-term solutions to homelessness in the community, while maintaining safe, appropriate emergency shelter for the community's most vulnerable residents.
Annual Point-in-Time (PIT) Counts and Surveys
In January of each year, the Boulder service community collaborates with the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative and six other counties in the Metro Denver region to provide a "snapshot" of homeless individuals in our community. This survey educates and raises awareness about issues. Volunteers are always needed to help survey.
