Local Housing First agencies - Denver, CO
Housing First is a proven solution to homelessness that was first implemented almost 30 years ago with the "Pathways to Housing" program by Sam Tsemberis. Following numerous studies of its success, many agencies across North America and Europe have implemented versions of the Housing First model.
For those who want to contribute to ending homelessness this Colorado Gives Day (December 10th, 2019), HousingFirst Lab has compiled a list of nonprofits in the metro Denver region that embrace the Housing First model. This list does not include public housing authorities or organizations that provide only Emergency Shelter or Transitional Housing. We hope that Denver's list will be the first of many cities' we publish as HousingFirst Lab continues to grow.
