Low wages, rising housing prices and mounting costs of health care mean that
homelessness can impact anyone.
From 2018 to 2019, HomewardBound has 27% more bed nights to families. These numbers are still estimated to represent a fraction of the 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.
