Services

HOPE provides the only year-round overnight service center for the homeless community in Longmont while offering supportive follow-through services. Our overnight center offers showers, laundry, hot meals and storage. Our case management supports those we serve get back on their feet and into housing. We also provide year round street outreach services to connect with the individuals on our streets on a deeper level. We strive to eliminate barriers of access which keep homeless individuals on the streets, and provide life-sustaining support to individuals experiencing homelessness.

Services & Programs

Overnight Center

HOPE’s nightly navigation services center offers shelter, showers, laundry, storage and a hot meal to people who are current in navigation. On especially cold nights, HOPE opens its nightly shelter to people experiencing homelessness who are not enrolled in navigation so they can get out of the elements. Search and save volunteers connect vulnerable individuals to services and provide warm clothing and blankets to people who choose not to stay at the emergency shelter.

Emergency Assistance

Through its emergency assistance program, HOPE provides bus passes, laundry vouchers, fills prescriptions and more, on a case-by-case basis. This program offers medical respite to individuals released from hospitals who have no indoor place to stay.

Street Outreach

HOPE does daytime street outreach Tuesdays and Fridays from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers do our evening outreach throughout the year. During street outreach, HOPE staff engage people experiencing homelessness at a deeper level and encourage them to do coordinated entry and connect to resources. This incredibly important work establishes supportive relationships and increases the chances that individuals will access the array of programs to help them move off the streets and into housing.

Bikes for HOPE

Thanks to a partnership between local businesses and cycling enthusiasts in our community, HOPE is able to distribute bicycles to clients with a demonstrated need. We accept donations of bicycles and bike parts, then volunteer bike mechanics refurbish the bicycles and add important features like lights and luggage racks so that each bicycle given to a HOPE client is reliable and safe. Having a bicycle helps people experiencing homelessness meet a vital need for transportation, which is an empowering step towards self-sufficiency. Email HOPEbikesLongmont@gmail.com to donate a bike.

Transitional Storage

Transitional storage provides a safe place for people to keep their belongings as they work, seek employment, or attend classes and appointments. Identified as a primary step toward self-sufficiency, the opportunity to store belongings can be transformative.

SafeLot

SafeLot. A safe place for those having to live in their vehicles. This program – coming soon – will be the first in Colorado!
