For more than 25 years, Urban Peak has provided valuable support services for homeless individuals between the ages of 15 and 24 in the Denver area. Among these services, the organization offers a 40-bed overnight shelter, designed specifically for youth between the ages of 15 and 20. Open all day and night, 365 days per year, the shelter works hard to create a safe and welcoming environment.
During their time at Urban Peak Shelter, young people work closely with case managers to take steps toward obtaining stable housing. In addition to helping youth access their own apartments, Urban Peak organizes family mediation services to help them return home. Other services available at the shelter include a medical clinic with free HIV and pregnancy testing; activities such as art, sports, and outdoor excursions; and three meals each day, along with snacks.
Urban Peak’s fundraising event Urban Nights will be on August 22, 2015. Modeled after an event at Omaha Fashion Week, is a fun event to support an organization that helps support youth who are experiencing the brutal reality of homelessness. This multi-sensory fundraiser features an exciting fashion show under the viaduct at Mile High Station featuring Denver’s hottest up-and-coming designers, a silent auction, and pre- and after-event celebrations.
All net proceeds generated from the evening benefit the youth of Urban Peak.
