Reviews for Aurora Warms The Night Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

Working with AWTN has been amazing as a board member and also as a professional at Aurora Mental Health Center. As a board member, the board and director make the most with every dollar! As an employee at AUMHC in working with AWTN I am impressed how AWTN continues to grow and meet the needs that arise. AWTN is truly a first class operation

Aurora Warms the Night should be commended for all the wonderful support that they provide to the Homeless population in the City of Aurora. In the 9 years of providing services, they have supported individuals and families, providing food, clothing and shelter during the coldest of winter days and nights. They continue throughout the year to partner with other community agencies to include; health care clinics, vocational and behavioral health services. What makes this organization unique is that they provided most of these services free of charge to their homeless clients. Their commitment to serving this population, their passion and dedication to their work should be awarded.

I was an intern for a few months at AWTN, so I got to see the behind the scenes of how it was run. The individuals working with AWTN were great! They really care about the cause and put their hearts into it. I am a firm believer in doing what you love and are passionate about and this is exactly what they do! I really enjoyed my time working with such a GREAT company!

Even with a small staff and budget they were still able to provide 2511 bed nights of shelter + 2511 food kits + thousands more hygiene and warm clothing. They are a very important resource in Aurora.

Aurora Warms the Night is the best non profit I have ever volunteered for. The atmosphere is amazing and comfortable and the people are awesome and committed. Sarah Hamilton (the executive director) is an amazing woman. It is inspiring to see how devoted and committed she is. She truly believes in her business and works extra hard to continue to change the lives of people in need every single day. The organization is exceptional and focuses on problems that truly matter. I highly recommend volunteering for this facility!

Wonderful organization that serves the homeless population in Aurora. We have volunteered with AWTN on a number of occasions and have been so impressed with what they are able to do with limited resources. Not only does AWTN provide much needed services to the homeless of Aurora, but they do so in a way that allows those who utilize services to feel cared for and respected as individuals.

This agency helps unsheltered homeless persons during cold weather days in Aurora Colorado. They have prevented people from freezing when the temperature is below 21 degrees. Through their outreach they have built relationships with many persons and have connected them to resources. When I am out in the community I talk to people all the time who have been helped by this agency. Wonderful!

AWTN is an excellent program and fulfills a much needed service in the Original Aurora Community. Their program has helped to keep many people from freezing on the streets. And the program has helped to connect people to other services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...expand the program to help permanently house homeless individuals.
