With the support of our community, we create lasting change in the lives of homeless men, women and children in Denver.

Here’s How.


Emergency Services

People are invited inside, off the street, where their immediate needs are met and critical relationships are built with Mission staff.

Rehabilitation

Men living with an addiction are equipped with work readiness skills, receive help to overcome destructive habits, find permanent housing, and begin a new life.

Community Outreach

People struggling in our community receive assistance with food, clothing, furniture, household items and holiday meals.

“When you end up homeless, you feel like you lose the rights to celebrate because there’s really nothing to celebrate. Having the home-cooked food here and the gifts, it gives us a sense of normality.”
