Denver’s homeless motel guests increasing

It's a well-known fact that Denver's ramshackle motels host some of the city's most needy families. But just how many families live in temporary motel housing is impossible to say. During the summer months, the city typically doles out around 16 vouchers each day, which are redeemable at 16 motels. But the number of homeless families crashing along Colfax Avenue, Broadway and Colorado Boulevard is likely much higher. And it's a hard figure to pin down.
