362 Main Street, Grand Junction, CO 81501
Provides homeless youth, 13 to 20 years of age, on the Western Slope with safety through short-term housing programs, warmth, and hope for a new day.
The House is a 10-bed, emergency shelter for homeless youth ages 13-20, which provides intensive case management and support. About 70 youth come through The House each year. The program is staffed 24/7. Think of it as a train station. This is where youth come in from the cold for short stays. From the station, they take trips to more permanent destinations: back home, to DHS programs, to Job Corp, to college, or to longer-term Karis programs.
Laurel House Apartments is a large apartment building that houses some of our community’s most vulnerable youth. The program features 34 one-bedroom apartments with a lot of beautiful common space. Youth can stay in their apartments for as long as needed. Laurel House is the epitome of a home. It is a place designed to house and care for the neediest youth in our community for a very long time.
Zoe House is a 14-bed, transitional housing program that provides housing and voluntary services to youth ages 18-24 and their dependents made homeless by intimate-partner violence. Zoe House is the Bat Cave of our programs—a place youth hide away to be safe and receive assistance as they prepare to re-enter a world that has done them harm.
The Host Home Program provides housing, case management, and support to homeless youth ages 16-22 in local homes. It’s like an uncle or aunt’s house, a place where you stay for a year or two to get back on your feet.
The host family receives services and a stipend from Karis. If you have a spare room in your home, you can provide youth experiencing homelessness with the safety and security they need to reach their full potential. You can give them a HOME.
Bonnie’s House is a voucher-based, 5-bed permanent supportive housing program for homeless youth ages 18-24 and offers mental health services and support from a Rocky Mountain Health Care Coordinator as well as Karis services. Youth pay 30% of their income towards rent.
The Transitional Living Program (TLP) provides housing (10 beds), case management, and support to homeless youth ages 16-22 for up to two years. Think of it as an uncle or aunt’s house. It’s a place where you stay for a year or two to get back on your feet. The program is centered at two four-bedroom homes: Benni’s House and Mathew’s House. Youth pay 30% of their income monthly and have their income returned at program completion so they can transition to self-sufficiency. Last year, TLP served 16 youth.
The Street Outreach Program (SOP) is the arm of agency in the community and on the street. We think of it as a friendly octopus. The heart of the street outreach program is the drop-in center, and the tentacles are its programs that reach throughout the community. The program is centered at our drop-in center at 4th and Main and employs 2-4 outreach workers who visit homeless youth in schools, on the street, in parks, and under bridges. This program serves youth ages 13-24 and last year served 245 youth (this includes youth who stayed in Karis housing programs).
The Asset House is a two-year transitional housing program for adults ages 18 and older. Residents at Asset House live in single rooms and shared bathrooms and a kitchen. We work to get residents connected with resources and support in the community. The monthly rent includes all utilities.
