Poverty and Homelessness Reduction

CSWB Strategic Plan

Poverty and Homelessness Reduction works to reduce poverty and homelessness through community engagement, partnership development, and helping shape policy. We work collaboratively across the region to improve systems, elevate people, reduce displacement, and expand opportunities and services. We strive to lead and coordinate initiatives related to homelessness, housing, and quality of life. 

Existing Programs:

2020 Census Outreach

Adams County is committed to getting a complete and accurate count in 2020. The County launched its Adams County Complete Count Committee to engage partners in working collaboratively for the 2020 Census. 

Adams County Coalition for the Homeless (ACCH)

ACCH is a network of community partners collaborating on housing and homelessness issues and solutions so that our community embraces safe, stable, health and accessible housing for everyone so that homelessness is rare, brief, and one-time.

Adams County Day Works

Adams County Day Works is a low-to no-barrier employment program for people experiencing homelessness. In partnership with Bayaud Enterprises, the purpose of this program is to provide day labor opportunities for participants while working towards permanent employment. 

Homelessness Outreach

Outreach connects us with people experiencing homelessness, understand their needs in services, and provide resource navigation. Outreach efforts received funding from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs’ (DOLA) Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and works in partnership with the park ranger program. For more information, contact Sam Olson at

Point-in-Time (PIT) Count

The Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is a snapshot of literal homelessness on a single night, which helps communities understand trends and the needs of those staying in sheltered and unsheltered situations across the region.

SWAP is a severe weather response in collaboration with Adams County Government, ACCESS Housing, and Almost Home. From October to April, SWAP assesses and administers hotel/motel stays when the weather poses a threat to the well-being and/or lives of people sleeping or living outdoors during the winter months
