Bell Plumbing and Heating is dividing its staff into teams and raising money and donation items for Charities around Colorado. Our team has chosen Urban Peak!
Founded in 1988, Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Their goal is to help these youth overcome real-life challenges and become self-sufficient adults.
They do this by providing five essential services at little or no cost to the youth:
· an overnight shelter
· a daytime Drop-In Center
· Street Outreach
· Education & Employment programming
· Supportive housing
Their goal is to meet youth where they are and to provide them with the assistance and support they need to become self-sufficient or obtain the necessary services they need to exit a life on the streets. Urban Peak’s programs and services are founded on the principles of trauma-informed care* and positive youth development and assist youth in reaching their potential and living a successful life off of the streets.
