Aurora Warms the Night 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.  Founded in 2006, AWTN started by a group of Aurora citizens as a way to provide shelter in the winter for Aurora’s homeless.

Located in original Aurora near the Colfax corridor AWTN provides shelter and comprehensive services for Aurora’s homeless.

AWTN shelters those experiencing homelessness in the winter when temperatures reach 20 degrees or colder.  Year round services include meals, food kits, 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 stamp, 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. Ranking the highest status of Gold 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.
