The camp of the homeless: a dirty matress, blanket, some food packacking and some shoes.The City of Littleton is engaged in several initiatives to prevent homelessness and serve community members who experience it.

  • The city participates in the Tri-Cities Homelessness Policy group, a team of public officials dedicated to addressing homelessness in Littleton, Englewood, and Sheridan, Colorado. While homelessness is evident throughout the state, the Tri-Cities Group shares physical borders and often collaborates on regional issues.
  • City officials participate in Change the Trend, a collection of local organizations collaborating to end the cycles of poverty, addiction, and homelessness.
  • The Littleton Police Department and All-Health Network have established a police Co-Responder Program to reduce crime rates and provide citizens with necessary mental health and social services.
  • Bemis Public Library maintains a comprehensive list of area resources to assist those experiencing homelessness.

The Tri-Cities Homelessness Policy Group approved an Intergovernmental Agreement in mid 2019 with the University of Denver’s Center for Housing and Homelessness Research (CHHR). The project includes interviewing adults experiencing homelessness and assessing family homelessness. A final report is expected in 2020 with the goal of better understanding the current situation and needs. CHHR is currently collecting data for the report. The CHHR team is actively recruiting for volunteers.

Council member Carol Fey is Littleton's liaison to the Tri-Cities Homelessness Policy Group.
