As of today, November 9, 2011, there have been 15 emergency warming centers. And the number of guest-nights provided has been 1,018.
On behalf of BOHO, thanks to the congregations and volunteers who work diligently to provide a warm, dry, safe place with social support for folks to sleep. It is clear–both from the numbers and the stories of those who use the emergency warming centers–the need is great.
If you would like to volunteer with BOHO, please email volunteers@BOHOcommunity.com.
If you would like to make a donation to support the BOHO as it provides emergency shelter to those in need, you can do so online (see the donation button on the right side of this page) or mail a check to BOHO, P.O. Box 1393, Boulder, CO 80305.
You can sponsor a night of emergency shelter and support for up to 100 people for $360; that’s less than $4 per person per night. And the funds help twice, because almost all is used to pay staff who are formerly or currently homeless for jobs that prepare them for rejoining the workforce with longer term, permanent employment.
If you have any questions, please email BOHO@BOHOcommunity.com.
