Urban Peak Colorado Springs

What

Urban Peak provides the roofs, resources and relationships that help youth exit homelessness. We work with youth ages 15 to 24, creating a safe environment of support, encouragement and hope. We are the only nonprofit organization in Colorado Springs that offers a full convergence of trauma-informed, developmentally appropriate and strength-based services for youth in homelessness. Each year we support 600 young people.

Why

With compassion, guidance and support, positive change and healing can happen in support of youth to get off the street. When young people are involved with Urban Peak they have a real chance at finding success, from completing high school or starting higher education, to finding sustainable employment or housing, managing a chronic mental illness, or reuniting with family in a safe environment.

Needs

Volunteers to cook meals, provide training/classes and networks to employers, and assistance with events (some opportunities require a background check).

Did You Know

On any given night there are approximately 130 homeless youth in our community. About 1 in 3 are surviving outside.

“Everyone at Urban Peak is welcoming and supportive. Even during the toughest times of my life.”
— Ned, youth accessing the emergency youth shelter
