Denver Homelessness: Lights On in Five Points, Another Sweep in Capitol Hill

Denver Homelessness: Lights On in Five Points, Another Sweep in Capitol Hill

While Denver continues to grapple with the city's homelessness challenges — efforts that included a sweep in the 600 block of Sherman Street on November 19 — the Department of Housing Stability installed holiday lights at Sonny Lawson Field in Five Points illuminating the issue. The 4,171 lights symbolize the number of people experiencing homelessness in Denver, as counted in January.
