HomesImpact of the Unauthorized Camping Ban on Denver’s Homeless Community

Download Flyer (pdf)

Denver Homeless Out Loud (DHOL) invites the public to the release of a survey on the impact of the City of Denver’s Unauthorized Camping Ban on 500 homeless people living in Denver. The ordinance authorizes the police to require the homeless to go to a shelter or move along whenever they are caught covering themselves from the cold and elements or face criminal sanctions.

When: April 3 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Where: Cornerstone Residences, 1001 Park Ave. (at Curtis St.), Denver, CO 80218

Refreshments will be served.

The survey was drafted and conducted by DHOL, homeless people and experienced researchers who are deeply concerned about the impact of this law enforcement tool on those living in the streets without homes and in shelters. It was painstakingly prepared, and surveyors were carefully trained to be unbiased in conducting the survey. DHOL believes that speaking with the homeless is the only way to understand the impact of the ban.

Over 500 people experiencing homelessness in Denver volunteered their time to complete the survey. The report is produced in collaboration with Professor Tony Robinson and students of the University of Colorado Denver, Department of Political Science. The survey results provide valuable information about the impact of the ordinance and how we can better serve the homeless in Denver. DHOL will make the data publicly available to the homeless, the Mayor’s Commission on the Homeless, and constituencies who work with the homeless. We hope our data helps improve the safety of those who live on the streets, increases services, and improves rapid re-housing options.

    * back pain during pregnancy

    * restless leg syndrome (an almost irresistible urge to move the legs that usually occurs during the last trimester and disappears soon after delivery)

    * pressure on the sciatica nerve

    * symphysis pubis dysfunction or SPD (occurs when there’s a lengthening of the ligaments in the pelvic joints and surrounding muscles)

    Sleeping during pregnancy can be a challenge. As you all knew, http://pregnancybodypillow.org/ the only solution is getting enough support on your body with the right places. That’s why some of us used more than 3 to 5 pillows to get it right.

    BUT, using a normal shape pillow will not evenly help you at all time.

    That’s why, you need a specifically design pillow for your night. Or in general call, you need a maternity pregnancy body pillow.

    But, which one brand or shape of pregnancy pillow works the best?

    Well, it’s my job to help you.
