Aurora Warms the Night: Shelter and Services for those Experiencing Homelessness

Aurora Warms the Night (AWTN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to preserve the life, health and stability of Aurora’s men, women, and children facing homelessness.   Located in Original Aurora near the Colfax corridor, AWTN provides shelter and comprehensive services for those experiencing homelessness. Our EIN is 27-4728487 and donations are tax-deductible.

AWTN shelters those experiencing homelessness in the winter when temperatures reach 20 degrees or colder.  Year round services include meals, warm clothing, hygiene items, transportation to shelter, laundry vouchers, bus passes, partner agency referrals, and advocacy.   We operate these services in order to ensure families and individuals meet their most basic needs, learn new skills, and access resources to transition out of homelessness.

By partnering with providers, we are helping to break the cycle of homelessness through comprehensive services. Our partner provider services are located onsite in our building and include mental health services, health care clinics, workforce education for clients including resume writing, interviewing skills, job coaching assistance, food assistance (SNAPS), SSI, and SSDI application assistance; and veterans’ services.

AWTN provides education to the community regarding homelessness, including presentations to schools, faith-based community, corporations, and community organizations.

AWTN has consistently been ranked a top non-profit by GreatNonprofits, whose seal is trusted second to the Better Business Bureau. AWTN is a member of Aurora Chamber of Commerce. Ranking the highest status of Platinum on GuideStar, an independent charity ranking organization, and partnering with local and state government, AWTN has proven its self a trustworthy charity.

All services are provided free of charge to those experiencing homelessness.
