- Community Resources for the Homeless - A great 2-page printout compiled by the Boulder Shelter to have on hand for anyone experiencing homelessness.
- Boulder Ambassadors - Call/text 720-498-9601 to address undesirable behavior on The Hill.

- Boulder Beat's Homelessness 101 - A series of stories from the Boulder Beat to provide crucial context and data regarding homelessness in Boulder.
- City of Boulder Homelessness Services/Coordinated Entry
- In Boulder County, people experiencing homelessness can access services and housing resources through Coordinated Entry, a short screening in which questions are asked to determine needs and match them with services. During the process, people are also assessed for possible Diversion Services: a specialist can provide financial (e.g., bus passes, car repairs) or non-financial (e.g., landlord discussions) assistance to resolve homelessness immediately.
- Feet Forward - A local nonprofit organization that provides food, clothes, survival gear, peer-to-peer mentoring, housing and job assistance, and more to the unhoused community in Boulder County. Donations go directly to keeping people experiencing homelessness warm, dry, and fed.
- Boulder Shelter - Many opportunities for individuals and groups to volunteer their time and help provide meals to Boulder's homeless. Also accepts financial and in-kind donations.
- Bridge House - Bridge House relies on volunteers to provide one-on-one mentoring, work training, and more to help people get back on their feet. Also accepts financial and in-kind donations.
