B+Y has helped the Veterans Administration (VA) establish, the first of it's kind, Community Resource and Referral Center (CRRC) at the Bo Matthews Center for Excellence (3030 Downing Street, Denver CO).
The CRRC is a dynamic, community based center for homeless veterans and their families to access VA services. Services include: permanent and transitional housing, employment services, VA & non-VA benefits, showers, laundry, and case management as we continue to push towards VA Secretary Shinseki’s goal of eliminating Veteran homelessness.
This facility is the first in the nation is available to all veterans as an access point to a variety of services including housing, medical, mental health, substance abuse and employment.
"...our work is not complete until no veteran has to sleep on the street"-Secretary Eric Shinseki, 01/04/2012
On February 10, 2010, the center opened with Mayor Michael Hancock and representatives from the offices Senator Michael Bennet, Representative Diana Degette and Governor John Hickenlooper in attendance.
