Homeless Assistance homelessness image

The city is not a direct service provider and funds agencies in the community to provide direct services to individuals experiencing homelessness.

Outreach Team 

The city works with community partners such as Mile High Behavioral Healthcare and Aurora Mental Health to form an outreach team to help address homelessness in the community. The outreach team is not an enforcement entity. Instead, they engage with people who are camping, living out of their vehicle or RV and work with them to access services in the community. Members of this outreach team are trained professionals with years of experience working with people experiencing homelessness.
