Denver short term housing and shelter.

Find information on transitional housing in Denver County Colorado. Several non-profits and other organizations can help the homeless, people facing imminent eviction, and those looking for stability with their housing situation. Not only can the resources provide individuals a place to stay over the short term (normally a shelter), but case managers from the centers can help clients find a new, low income and affordable home in Denver.

Individuals can also get details on programs to help them pay the rent or deposit on their new apartment or home. However those funds are very limited. An alternative may be the section 8 housing choice voucher program, which can often help the very low income or recently homeless.

The demand for any type of transitional housing assistance is very high, both in Denver and nationwide. So the space at many of these units is limited and/or there may be an extensive waiting list. Call for more details or possible referrals to other nearby organizations.
