Improve Systems

Countywide Collaboration on People Experiencing Homelessness (PEH)

CSWB is working with municipal partners on a Memorandum of Understanding MOU that further strengthens regional coordination and improve outcomes for people experiencing, or are at risk of, homelessness through a shared vision. The MOU includes sharing and utilizing available data that will help identify resource and service needs, as well as potential locations that serve our residents experiencing homelessness. Currently, Adams County, eight of its municipalities, and the City and County of Broomfield has expressed interest to move forward with the MOU.

    Team/Employee Highlight

    “I live alone and have no family, and the few friends I have are on the West Coast. As a result, I can easily spiral into despair and lose the ability to put my energy into solutions and not despondence. Lindsay has been a great presence. Although my situation is still dire, I feel like there’s someone “out there” who cares, and that is helping me feel a lot less alone. […] I wanted to impart how grateful I am for good people like Lindsay and you, too! - who care. Feeling like there are people who care gives me back something that had pretty much slipped away - hope.”
