Family Motel

housing individuals and families in emergency situations


4855 West Colfax
Denver, CO 80204

The Family Motel works with the Denver Department of Human Services (DDHS) to provide a motel atmosphere with a human services flavor. A continental breakfast is offered to all guests every day.

The Volunteers of America Family Motel served 3444 people in 2017. The Motel is fully operational and maintains 40 rooms for families and individuals specifically for use by DDHS. The Motel reserves 30 rooms for families who may receive a voucher from the City of Denver for up to 14 nights in a year long period. A second component includes 10 “respite rooms” with two men or women in each room. Working closely with a DHS Respite Program Coordinator, homeless individuals may be referred by a medical provider following a hospital stay. The length of stay depends on the time needed to recuperate.
