The Top 5 of 2015
5 – YOU! Our supporters in 2015 have gone above and beyond. From attending our myriad of events, to buying raffle tickets, to the more than 600 volunteers who shared their compassion and talents with us, to advocating for our efforts to end homelessness in Boulder one person at a time – We CAN’T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU.Click here and check out this great event coverage of our 2015 Art Show.

3 – The Boulder Homeless Service Collaborative – The innovative collaborative partnership with the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and BOHO to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of homeless services. We are working hard to create a more seamless continuum to ensure homeless services are as efficient and effective as they can be.
2 – Our IMPACT – In 2015 we have expanded the offerings of the Bridge House Resource Center to five days per week and are investing in case management interventions to help clients access the services needed to leave the streets behind. Our team has conducted more than 10,000 case management interactions over 2015 including 1,043 employment, 266 housing and 206 for benefit acquisition.
