Pete and Susanah Frech, broker associates with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado Springs and recipients of the company’s International President’s Circle Award, are in their 10th year of working with the Urban Peak charitable organization.  Urban Peak provides shelter services to homeless youth due to the extremely limited availability of emergency shelter or housing options for them in the Pikes Peak region.

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado Springs, its broker associates and title and mortgage professionals have decided to join Pete and Susanah to support Urban Peak in 2011. The Frechs have created a collection corner in the Colorado Springs office where agents can donate clothing, food, toiletries and other every day necessities.  They even have a mock parking meter that agents and visitors can feed with change, and a collection box for soda cans that are recycled in exchange for money. 

The Coldwell Banker family in Colorado Springs, under the leadership of Peter Frech and Esther Hornecker, are also organizing different fund raising activities starting in May and running through the end of October. 

From its inception, Urban Peak identified a need to provide shelter services to homeless youth due to the extremely limited availability of emergency shelter or housing options for homeless youth in the greater Colorado Springs area.  Last year, the organization served 5,700 meals at its shelter, and 79 youth sought education services.  In addition, 105 youth received employment assistance. 

Urban Peak offers pro bono transitional housing for 20 youth, supportive housing in eight apartment units through the HUD Supportive Housing Program, street outreach, health and medical care, intensive case management, and GED instruction to young clients.  For those wishing to get involved with the charitable organization, visit urbanpeak.org or contact Pete Frech with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage at pete.frech@coloradohomes.com.

The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Colorado Springs is located at 2075 Research Parkway, Suite B, and can be reached at 719.550.2500.
