Urban Peak provides a full convergence of services for youth experiencing homelessness to help them become self-sufficient adults. Urban Peak’s downtown Denver drop-in youth shelter created a new state-of-the-art music studio, spearheaded by University of Colorado Denver songwriting professor, Owen Kortz, in order to provide the community with a cathartic and expressive outlet.
