Our vision is that all Colorado youth have safe housing, supportive relationships, and the opportunity for self-sufficiency and success.
The real life challenges of youth experiencing homelessness can be overcome. That’s where The Place comes in – we offer three vital programs that support young people on their journey. At The Place, youth find skills, support and insight that allow them to step off the streets and step toward a brighter future.
This program connects young people on the street (ages 15 – 24 years old) with shelter, housing or even helps them to reunify with family members. Our outreach team immediately provide key items that make a big difference in the life of a young person experiencing homelessness.
Our shelter is a warm, safe option to a night on the streets. Open every day of the year, our 20-bed facility is the only licensed youth shelter in Colorado Springs. There we provide meals, clothing, and a health clinic link for youth ages 15 to 20.
The housing program at The Place helps youth live safely while they build their self-sufficiency.
