What We Do
Ready to Work is a “work-first” approach to addressing homelessness. Ready to Work offers 1 year of housing, employment and support for adults experiencing homelessness. Ready to Work is the only holistic model in Colorado focused on addressing homelessness through social enterprise and employment combined with housing. Ready to Work operates in 2 communities in Metro Denver. After 7 years in Boulder, Bridge House replicated the model in Aurora, CO, which expands its presence from a capacity of 44 in Boulder to 94 in the region.
