Weld’s Way Home


Weld’s Way Home is an initiative to address and prevent homelessness in Weld County.


Led and hosted by United Way of Weld County (UWWC), it streamlines homelessness response and homelessness prevention systems. It doesn’t work directly with clients experiencing homelessness. Instead, Weld’s Way Home utilizes UWWC’s community capacity to support Weld County service providers by maximizing resources already dedicated to homelessness in Weld County, involving neighbors in supporting each other in times of need, and uniting Weld County for lasting change
