Housing Crisis Resolution System
Homeless Solutions for Boulder County (HSBC) is an innovative, systems approach to addressing homelessness across the county that was launched in October 2017. Participants include government agencies from Boulder County and the Cities of Boulder and Longmont, nonprofits working to impact homelessness, and the faith community. This new approach is organized around the Housing First model; an evidence-based approach that prioritizes helping individuals and families experiencing homelessness obtain a stable housing solution as quickly as possible. The goal of HSBC is to provide adults experiencing homelessness with targeted, responsive services to support quick, stable housing solutions.
People seeking services access the system through a Coordinated Entry process with access points in both Boulder and Longmont. Clients are assessed to determine if they are most appropriate for Navigation Services or Housing-focused Shelter. All screenings are conducted by Boulder Shelter for the Homeless (BSH) staff. Navigation Services are provided by Bridge House in Boulder, and HOPE and the OUR Center in Longmont.
