BOHO collaborates with Boulder County Cares (BCC) the street outreach program of the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. BCC lets folks know if the emergency warming center (EWC) is open on a given night and where it is located. If the person is new to Boulder, BCC volunteers arrange transport to the EWC, otherwise they help the person figure out options. BCC also hands out cold-weather equipment to help persons choosing to sleep out be safe.
Anne Doyle of BOHO participates on the Steering Committee of Boulder County Cares. The committee also includes representatives from the City of Boulder police, the Boulder jail, the Emergency Room of Boulder Community Hospital, the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and the Bridge House.
It is very important for the organizations that provide services and support for our homeless neighbors to work together. BOHO welcomes opportunities to collaborate.
