To meet, as a community, emergent needs for basic shelter and care not served because of gaps in the Boulder support network.
Every person who is in Boulder will have his or her basic needs of shelter, food, resources and care met, in a hospitable context of mutual and inclusive community, even though the programs and resources of existing institutions may not be sufficient.
Volunteers are critical to BOHO’s operations. BOHO employs the homeless to implement the Emergency Warming Center program, but does not employ paid professional or executive staff for administrative and fundraising tasks.
BOHO relies upon the volunteer efforts of its board, volunteers from congregations and from the community at large providing an estimated 2,400 hours of volunteer service.
