About the 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 you a safe and welcoming environment where we respect your rights and identity. We are a safe place for LGBTIQ youth and accept your orientation and identity.

To stay at Urban Peak’s Shelter, you must be 15 through 20 years old. If you are under 18, we will need to get permission from your parent or legal guardian for you to be able to stay at the Shelter. If you feel that your parent or legal guardian will not grant you permission, call or come in to talk to us and we can try to help you in any way that we can.

If you are 21 or older, we can help you find another place where you can stay.

While you are at the Shelter you will work with a case manager to identify your strengths and create a plan to move toward safe and stable housing. This may include providing you and your family with mediation services or help you to access your own apartment through Urban Peak.

At the Shelter, we offer caring, supportive staff; a medical clinic three half-days a week; three meals a day and snacks; group activities such as mountain bike excursions, hiking, sports, art and referrals to additional requested services.
