Douglas County Winter Shelter Network
On November 1st, the first Winter Shelter Network opened in Douglas County. The network provides overnight shelter for up to 40 women and children during the coldest months of winter. Catholic Charities Castle Rock played an important role in the development of the network, where 8 local churches will host the shelter on a rotating basis.
Catholic Charities (CC) will also serve as a Coordinated Point of Entry for mom’s entering into the shelter. This gives CC case managers, who have relied on limited funds for emergency hotel stays, another tool in providing emergency sheltering in Douglas County. If you live in Douglas County and are experiencing homelessness, contact us at 720-215-4521
