Who We are

Helping the Homeless Colorado, a 501(c) 3 non-profit, was founded in 2016 in Denver, Colorado by students Alyssa Gorkin & Matine Khalighi. Helping the Homeless Colorado works with individuals who are experiencing homelessness to improve their quality of life. In addition, we are dedicated to advocating for the homeless on a political level. Here at Helping the Homeless Colorado, we believe in taking this one step further and educating and empowering our youth to make positive contributions on homeless communities.


Our Three Pillars

  • 01


    This pillar addresses homelessness on a political level. At the core of the issue is a system of broken, failing, and often missing policies. Our advocacy aims to bring attention to homelessness in terms of supportive and proactive policies through engaging conversation.

  • 02


    This pillar is based on changing how the public views homelessness. Our programs put an emphasis on empowering youth and displaying the importance of youth participating in social changes. Whether it be in large auditoriums or small discussions, Helping the Homeless Colorado aims to challenge stereotypes common in our community.

  • 03


    This is our pillar dedicated to accessible resources for those who are actively struggling with homelessness. Our main focus being homeless youth, we introduced our College Awards Scholarship Program, which provides scholarships to homeless high school youth in order to make higher level education more attainable.
