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.

Dedrick's Story

“This program has opened up so much more [to me] spiritually. I feel so much closer to Christ. I feel like I’m in His will. I feel like I’m part of something healthy. I’ve gotten more than I ever had and ever needed, and [this is] just the beginning.”

Tabitha's Story

“My kids are safe under one roof, and I pay attention to the things I didn’t see when we weren’t. I have so much support here and so much help, between the staff and kid’s club and my case manager. It’s such a supportive place.”

Tim's story

“The New Life Program is a recovery-based, faith-based program. My whole existence here is based upon people trying to better themselves—people trying to achieve sobriety. I’m in a constant state of awe of these guys who are changing their lives.”

Richard's Story

“What has really impressed me is the staff members. They make a lot of frequent trips around the facility to check on folks. The regular staff members, I’ve kind of gotten close to, because I get to sit down and talk to them.”

About 15 years ago, my wife, Stacey, started volunteering at the Mission regularly on Tuesdays. We took my daughter and my sons to serve at different times, during Easter and Thanksgiving or during their summer breaks.
