A Run For Urban Peak

Founded in 1988, Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Their goal is to help these youth overcome real life challenges and become self-sufficient adults.

Urban Peak does this by providing five essential services at little or no cost to the youth:

- an overnight shelter
- a daytime Drop-In Center
- Street Outreach
- Education & Employment programming
- Supportive housing

Urban Peak's goal is to meet youth where they are and to provide them with the assistance and support they need to become self-sufficient or obtain the necessary services they need to exit a life on the streets. Urban Peak’s programs and services are founded on the principles of trauma-informed care* and positive youth development and assist youth in reaching their potential and living a successful life off of the streets.

Etkin Johnson's team has been involved with Urban Peak for many years by serving dinner at the youth shelter in Denver.  As we've become more involved with the organization, we've only been more inspired by its mission. That's why this May, eleven Etkin Johnson employees will be running for Urban Peak in the Colfax Marathon Relay. We would greatly appreciate your donations and support of our team and Urban Peak to help end youth homelessness.

Thank you for your generosity!

*To provide trauma-informed services means that they understand an individual’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, intellectual and spiritual. Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives.
