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.
