Urban Peak works with youth whom are experiencing homelessness between the ages of 15 and 25 years of age in Denver and between the ages of 15 to 21 in Colorado Springs. We provide a safe and caring place so that you can begin to work on getting off the streets. We offer assistance in Denver and in Colorado Springs. If you are older or younger than the ages we serve, we can still help find a shelter or similar organization that help people in any age group.
Urban Peak Shelter Locations and Outreach
SHELTER - DENVER
If you are a youth in need, please visit our shelter at 1630 South Acoma Street MAP.
DROP IN CENTER - (The Spot) - Denver
Located at The Spot, our Drop-In Center is a low-barrier service for youth experiencing homelessness who are interested in exiting life on the street. The Drop-In Center provides breakfast Monday – Friday, an evening BBQ on Tuesday evenings, lockers, laundry services, showers and caring life skills counselors who assist youth in meeting their basic needs (ID service, housing assistance, etc.) and in learning essential life skills. In January 2013, the Drop-In Center added a medical clinic as well.
Specially trained counselors are on the streets interacting with youth living on the streets. Their goals are to develop a sense of trust and build relationships with youth, provide them with intensive case management, encourage them to come to Urban Peak, and connect them with resources in the community.
In Colorado Springs, staff can be seen frequently around the Citadel Mall, Chapel Hills Mall, bus station, Manitou Arcade, and downtown parks. They are also available to talk, help you get food and reach family members. Services at The Place include shelter, free food, showers, clothing, job counseling, doctor appointments, education programs and help finding housing. If you are older than 21 or younger than 15, we can still help you find a shelter or similar organization that helps people in your age group.
