COMMUNITY RESOURCES

Research shows when individuals or families struggle to meet their basic needs, including access to food, safe housing, heat when it’s cold, or transportation, health problems are often a result. At Primary Care Partners, we recognize the importance of these resources and have gathered a comprehensive list to assist you. 

If you do not find the community resources you are looking for, please contact your primary care provider’s office and ask to speak to one of our Care Coordinators who will work with you in an effort to connect you with community resources. You may also access resources through Western Colorado 2-1-1 by dialing 211 on your phone.

The following list is provided for your convenience only.  Primary Care Partners has not inquired about the references nor are we recommending any of the following individuals, groups, or organizations.

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.
