Did You Know?


Safe Outdoor Spaces have a Positive Effect on Neighborhood Crime 

The Colorado Sun recently highlighted the positive impacts of Safe Outdoor Spaces for people experiencing homelessness: “Each time a Safe Outdoor Space opens, neighbors worry that people who are experiencing homelessness and camping in the area will be disruptive and commit crimes in the neighborhood. 

The Colorado Sun’s analysis of Denver Police Department data found that crime reports decreased in the neighborhoods where Safe Outdoor Space sites have operated, even as reported crime increased across Denver.” Read the full story here.  

And check out the video summarizing the SOS that Regis University hosted for a year. (Scroll toward the bottom). 


Help the City of Denver Budget its Resources 

Denver's first cycle of participatory budgeting, where residents have direct decision-making power over $2 million in capital funds, is open for voting! Consider supporting our partner organization, Colorado Village Collaborative, by voting for Showers for All, which are shower trailers serving Safe Outdoor Space residents. This effort also supports the addition of five tiny homes in a Tiny Home Village to provide dignified shelter to even more people and connect them to additional services. 

 Click here to learn more about the process and click here for the city-wide ballot. It only takes a few moments to vote.
