Urban Peak – Helping youth experiencing homelessness overcome real life challenges to become self-sufficient adults
Information about 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. Our 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 maintain a safe existence. Urban Peak provides numerous programs and services that are founded on the principles of trauma-informed care* to assist youth in reaching their potential and living a successful life off of the streets. Services include street outreach, a 40-bed shelter for youth ages 15 through 20, a daytime drop-in center, transitional housing, education and employment services, case management, life skills courses, mental health evaluations, meals and more.
*To provide trauma-informed services means that we understand an individual’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, intellectual and spiritual. Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. Urban Peak assumes each and every youth we serve has experienced trauma and seeks to provide a safe environment and healthy, positive relationships where youth can begin to heal.
Urban Peak helps youth experiencing homelessness and youth at imminent risk of becoming homeless overcome real life challenges by providing essential services and a supportive community, empowering them to become self-sufficient adults.
Urban Peak will be a national service model of innovation and success for youth experiencing homelessness and will achieve outstanding results for our clients, supporters, donors and employees.
