What do I do if I know someone who is homeless?
Contact a Posada case manager at 719-545-8776 or have them visit the Supportive Services Center at 225 Colorado Avenue between 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
What if I’m not homeless, can Posada still help?
Case managers are able to provide referrals to other agencies within the community that can assist with services if Posada is unable to provide services.
When are you open?
Posada is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 12:00 p.m.
Where do I go for assistance after hours and on weekends?
Posada works in cooperation with the Pueblo Police Department to ensure that emergency shelter is provided to families with children or to individuals with medical issues, after hours and on weekends. You can call 719-553-2502 or you can go directly to the Pueblo Municipal Justice Center at 200 S. Main Street in Pueblo. Arrangements have been made with the department to refer families to appropriate shelter and food vouchers are available so that a household’s basic needs are met. People in emergency shelter are asked to contact Posada on the next business day.
Can you help with transportation?
Posada has a very small amount of funding to assist individuals with transportation. People must speak with a case manager to determine eligibility.
Can you help me get my birth certificate or the birth certificate of children?
Posada is unable to pay for birth certificates, but if you are applying to the Department of Social Services for assistance, they can assist you with obtaining them.
Can I receive my mail at Posada?
If you are literally homeless and have no safe way to receive mail you can use Posada’s administrative address to receive first class mail. That address is 827 East 4th Street, Pueblo CO 81001. Please note mail will not be distributed at that address.
As of August 15, 2017 Mail can be picked up through the case managers at 805 Desert Flower Drive Monday through Friday 8 am to 12 pm.
