Over the past five years Denver’s homeless population increased by about 15%, from 3,631 in 2016 to 4,171 in 2020, according to past point-in-time surveys. Plus, the homeless population is increasing so fast with the pandemic and financial crisis — well above the recent increase. These organizations are fighting poverty in the Denver Metro Area.
