Welcome to the
  Outreach Program

Thanks for visiting the DPS Homeless Services Program Website

Our mission for the Homeless Education Network is to help Denver Public Schools homeless children use education to break the cycle of poverty by providing essential educational supports. Our primary objective is to remove educational barriers that prevent homeless children from having a successful school experience.

We focus on two main areas: School Readiness and Student Success


  • school enrollment and advocacy

  • backpack/school supplies

  • free breakfast and lunch assistance

  • clothing and uniform assistance

  • basic need supplies

  • community resources for emergency housing situations

  • school transportation help

We will have a new look, new website, new staff, new homeless services directory. We look forward to sharing that with the district and community within a few weeks.
