VA Services Call for available times:
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 the office at 553-2502 or you can go directly to the Pueblo Municipal Justice Center at 200 S. Main in Pueblo. Arrangements have been made with the department to refer families to appropriate shelter and vouchers are available for food so that a household ‘s basic needs are met during night hours.
Posada's mission is to provide housing and supportive services that empower homeless individuals and families in Pueblo County to become self-supporting members of the community.
In most cities, it is easy to see that homelessness is a problem. Lines of desperate-looking people circle soup kitchens waiting for a meal. Homeless people beg for money at street corners, or fill public spaces such as parks or libraries.
It is not like that in Pueblo County. For many of us, it is easy to live here for years without knowingly encountering a homeless person.
And yet, we have people without homes in
Pueblo. For more information on Pueblo's Homeless Population, click HERE.
