About Crisis Prevention

Stabilizing Resources
Our community is stronger when we support each other in times of need. Crisis Prevention helps those on the verge of homelessness stay within their homes while also assisting shelter guests on their paths out of homelessness. We do this by providing assistance with rent, mortgage, utility, energy, medical and crisis expenses. The Crisis Prevention team works in partnership with clients to identify and overcome hurdles so they can live self-sufficiently in an economically struggling community. We seek to give hope to families when they need it most.

To apply for these services, please contact us or visit our Alamosa office at 929 State Avenue. You can also call or text our warmline* at 719-301-5466. We check the warmline regularly during office hours; if you reach out to us outside of our office hours, we will respond to you by the next business day.

Frequently asked questions

Crisis Prevention (formerly known as Outreach) became a needed service after shelter staff members observed that many of the individuals who came through our shelter doors might not have ever become homeless if they had received some assistance to keep them within their homes in the first place. Prior to Crisis Prevention, the shelter had 1,000-2,000 new people annually who utilized our emergency services; following its formation, the numbers dropped to 600 or fewer every year. Crisis Prevention currently aims to stabilize families on the brink of experiencing homelessness or assist families already experiencing homelessness with reintegration by providing financial and wrap around support. These services are crucial as we strive to prevent homelessness and provide support to those in crisis.

With grant support and the support of individual and group donors, Crisis Prevention is able to assist community members avoid financial catastrophe and/or homelessness through case management and bill pay assistance. Because of the many funding sources, the intricate internal and external referral network, it is important to call or text the warmline (719-301-5466) and explain situations that are causing the crisis in order for the staff to match up clients with the correct programs and help. Crisis Prevention endeavors to wrap the services around clients creating a safe space to re-orient after a crisis and get back on their feet. In addition to these services, Crisis Prevention has an annual Back-to-School Backpack Drive prior to each new school year, handing out hundreds of backpacks to children in need of one. Each backpack is filled with a variety of school supplies.

Eligibility criteria depends on the service you are seeking. If you find yourself in financial crisis, there is always a chance Crisis Prevention can help out.  Stop by our office at 929 State Ave. in Alamosa (M-F, 9:00am-4:30pm) or call/text our warmline at 719-301-5466 and we’ll see what we can do.

We utilize individual donations in assisting with crisis intervention and helping clients on the road to self-sufficiency. Crisis Prevention could not do all that we do without the help of individual donors.
