Close to Home

A young girl hugging a man \Everyone needs a safe place to call home. The Metro Mayors Caucus is proud to be a partner in Close to Home Colorado, a campaign to raise public awareness about homelessness in Colorado and shed light on the true face of this growing social crisis.

Comprehensive community conversations and research led Close to Home to establish 3 clear goals:

  • Mobilize metro Denver residents to address underlying causes of homelessness.
  • Increase understanding so that metro Denver residents experiencing homelessness are viewed by others, and regard themselves, as valuable members of our communities.
  • Make homelessness a priority issue in metro Denver.

Through the work of the Close to Home Campaign, and the efforts of many other committed individuals, groups, and organizations, we want very few individuals in metro Denver to experience homelessness, even fewer to be chronically homeless, and for all people to be able to live with dignity and hope.
