The Housing and Community Vitality Department manages the strategic investment of federal Emergency Solutions Grant funds, houses the City’s Homelessness Prevention and Response Coordinator, and coordinates with local organizations and agencies working to reduce homelessness.  

The City of Colorado Springs works to prevent and respond to homelessness through a wide range of evidence-based interventions designed to respond to the needs of people experiencing homelessness and prevent them from entering homelessness altogether. These are supported with City and federal funding, and are managed by different departments. 

Data on People Experiencing Homelessness 

The Point in Time Count is a periodic census of people experiencing homelessness conducted by the Pikes Peak Continuum of Care. Historical PIT count data is available below.

McKinney-Vento Children and Youth data (Colorado Department of Education).  The McKinney-Vento Act provides rights and services to children and youth experiencing homelessness through public education.
