Homeless Prevention and Response

Homelessness Prevention and Response Coordinator

Andrew Phelps coordinates the City's contributions to the regional effort to prevent homelessness, as well as responses to issues or needs that arise from people experiencing homelessness. He serves as the City's liaison between a large number of groups, (examples include Continuum of Care, the Colorado Springs Housing Authority, the El Paso County Housing Authority, other community service providers, landlords, client advocates, and community groups) to better identify, engage, and transition those experiencing homelessness to the appropriate services and, ultimately, permanent housing.
