Low wages, rising housing prices and mounting costs of health care mean that
homelessness can impact anyone. Last year, HomewardBound assisted 43 families, consisting of 66 adults and 90 children. These numbers are estimated to represent a fraction of homeless families in Western Colorado without a place to sleep tonight, or the next night. We believe Pathways Family Shelter is the solution.
Pathways Family Shelter Features:
80 New Beds
The Pathways Family Shelter will provide an additional 80 new beds, doubling the current capacity for housing families (adults and children) and single women. It will also free up beds at the North Avenue facility for single men & veterans.
Children's Library & study / play areas
The dedicated study areas will ensure children have a quiet place to focus on their studies during the school year. Additionally, the play areas will give them a place to go to release some energy, freeing parents to focus on accessing support services.
Medical Day Shelter / Onsite Healthcare Staff
The new building will house a first-of-its-kind respite unit focused on decreasing the spread of common illnesses, and will potentially include space for substance abuse therapies. Onsite healthcare providers will provide additional care.
Centralized Administration & Support Programs
A centralized location for HomewardBound administrative staff and onsite partner organizations as well as adult quiet/study areas and private/confidential conference rooms for training, coaching, and completing job and public assistance applications.
A campaign has been launched to raise $1 million locally from individual, business and organizational supporters. Your donation and continued support will help us reach our goal.
Construction of Pathways Family Shelter is budgeted at a total $4.9 million dollars, with $1.9 million secured pre-2018, and an additional $2 million expected in 2018 from grant funding requests.
