In addition to the funding received by the city, various community partners including Boulder County, Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, Mental Health Partners and Mother House also received funding which will broaden the support to unhoused community members or those facing behavioral health challenges.
“I am extremely pleased these much-needed resources to support behavioral health programs and supportive services for our unhoused community which will serve a variety of needs,” shared Kurt Firnhaber, director of Housing and Human Services. “The grant proposals from the city, the county and local partners communicated the significant challenges we are experiencing related to homelessness and mental and behavioral health and these funds will uplift key programs to positively impact our community.”
