Burnes Center on Poverty and Homelessness

The Burnes Center on Poverty and Homelessness provides assistance in research, policy analysis, and program evaluation and improvement. We help those committed to addressing the issue of homelessness - including service providers, practitioners, organizations, local and state government, and foundations - review policies, assess and measure impact, determine best use of resources, and use evidence and data to enhance existing programs as well as inform future policies, services, and efforts.

Colorado faces many challenges as it works to respond to the needs of large numbers of homeless individuals and families. At the Burnes Center, we offer information to help practitioners, community leaders, service providers and others make an impact in their communities and transform the lives of people experiencing homelessness.
