Homeward Pikes Peak consists of two main programs: an outpatient treatment clinic and five housing programs serving approximately 250 adults and thin children annually. We serve adults, pregnant single moms, families, and Veterans. Through intensive case management, outpatient treatment, street outreach, and advocacy we are working to end homelessness permanently.
HPP works to overcome the most common barriers to housing facing individuals experiencing homelessness – substance abuse and mental health issues. SAMHSA estimates that nearly 64% of persons experiencing homelessness have a severe mental illness or a history of substance abuse. By working directly on this with housing as a solution we save the community tax dollars dedicated to emergency services.
HPP needs cash and small household items for clients in housing.
100% of our clients have experienced trauma as a child or an adult which must be addressed and guides our services toward trauma-informed care models.
“I found a new way to live sober…and a safe place to share my troubles and worries. I have learned tools to deal with my emotions in a positive way when a crisis comes up I don’t use drugs or alcohol to numb myself anymore.” — Homeward Pikes Peak
