Featured Program: Brandon Center and Family Motel
Volunteers of America and the City of Denver have partnered to provide short term housing assistance to homeless individuals and families. Out of necessity, most homeless persons are forced to devote most of their time just to figure out where they will be able to stay on any given night. Lacking any place to make a phone call, leave their personal possessions, or take a shower, they are unable to even think about finding more permanent housing and applying for jobs and/or government benefits.
Volunteers of America’s Brandon Center and Family Motel offer a safe place to stay, along with case management assistance which focuses on finding longer term stable housing and connecting people with employment services and public benefits. As a result, re.sidents move quickly into transitional or permanent housing.
