The Colorado Veterans Resource Coalition (CVRC) is a 501(c)3 organization that provides safe, healthy emergency housing and community-based residential care, treatment and rehabilitative services for veterans who are homeless and/or suffer from chronic mental illness. The program serves qualified veterans (Honorable or General Under Honorable Conditions discharge) without regard to age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation. CVRC helps homeless veterans get back on their feet and step back into the community.
CVRC's Crawford House program provides safe emergency housing for veterans in the Colorado Springs area who are homeless and receiving VA-provided mental health care. Veterans are also accepted from neighboring states for the rehab program. The Crawford House program is the only program of its kind in Colorado: a private, non-profit veterans' residential treatment facility.
Since the CVRC started providing housing and services in 2001, they have helped over 2,192 homeless veterans, of which 81% successfully completed their program requirements and moved into their own homes.
