“Our shelter saves lives. But we’re also showing them the loving kindness of God. We believe that when we show them we truly care, when we’ve earned their trust, we can develop a relationship with them. When that happens, we can often help them escape their chronic homelessness, obtain housing, and become a contributing member of the community.”
– Sarah Stacy, Director of RAP, 2015
Winter in Colorado can be deathly cold. Without a warm place to sleep, many of our homeless neighbors wouldn’t survive the night. During these cold months, we can offer up to 250 men and women a place to sleep.
Last year, our Winter Homeless Shelter provided more than 10,000 shelter nights (and hot breakfasts) per year.
That wouldn’t have been possible without our welcoming volunteers and generous neighbors like you.
We have low-barrier, year-round shelters for up to 230 men and 70 women. These shelters operate 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.
There are no requirements for entry (no breathalyzers, no background checks, etc.—we want you to be safe), but your ability to stay will be determined by your behavior.
We will also provide you with a hot breakfast the following morning. In addition, we offer kennels for your pets.
We open the doors at 5 p.m. every night and beds are available on a first come, first served basis up until we close the doors at 10 p.m.
