A Safe Place to Stay


The Delores Project operates a strength-based, affirming community through shelter as an immediate response to homelessness, as well as supportive housing.


We offer Extended Stay Shelter for women and transgender individuals experiencing barriers to housing.

Rehousing and Continued Care

All shelter guests are provided on-site housing-focused case management and housing navigation. Depending on individual circumstances, some guests receive short-term rental assistance to help them obtain permanent housing. All shelter guests who transition into housing are provided one year of ongoing, community-based case management to support their continued stability and independence.

Permanent Supportive Housing

We provided low-income housing for previously homeless individuals and families.

Behavioral Health & Wellness

All shelter guests, supportive housing residents, and continued care clients are provided optional, on-site 1-on-1 therapeutic services and recovery and wellness-oriented group programming and counseling.

Please note - The Delores Project is NOT a safe house. We cannot provide shelter for those fleeing a violent situation. Please call the Mile High United Way Hotline at 211 for a list of safe houses.

The Delores Project operates The Delores Shelter at Arroyo Village, a low barrier, strengths-based shelter for women and transgender individuals experiencing homelessness. The shelter operates 24/7 and all guests are regularly tested for COVID-19.

Guests staying in the shelter receive meals, access to hot showers, bus tickets, access to health services, toiletries, a clean bed, a phone for local calling, and housing-focused case management.

Guests actively participate in shelter chores and our Guest Advisory Committee and are encouraged to foster a positive, safe and hospitable environment at our shelter. As we are an undisclosed location, individuals can access our shelter by calling and requesting a bed daily at 10am. More information about our transitional shelter services can be found here.

Community Re-entry Program: The remaining five shelter beds are reserved for women and transgender individuals who require safe shelter and emergency services after being released from the Department of Corrections. These guests work exclusively with a Community Reentry Specialist or a Probation Officer to accomplish individualized goals once referred to our program. The Specialist works closely with our Shelter Manager to ensure the guest is moving forward towards stability. More information on our Community Transitions Program including how to access it, and a referral form, can be found here.

The Delores Project does not require identification or other documentation for use of our services. The Delores Project will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, gender identity or expression, religion, creed, age over 40, ancestry, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, military status or any other applicable status protected by state or local law in any of its activities or operations.
