The Place (a former affiliate of Urban Peak)
Urban Peak Colorado Springs ignites the potential in youth to exit homelessness and create self-determined, fulfilled lives. Our shelter, street outreach and housing programs reach approximately 600 youth annually in the Pikes Peak Region. Located in downtown Colorado Springs, UPCS employs 24 people, and our programs operate on a budget of approximately $1.4 million annually.
The youth served at the shelter come from a variety of backgrounds, and we strive to be a safe community for all youth, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, class, educational background, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability status.
