Shelter, Meals & General Services

Emergency services like meals, 24/7 shelter, restrooms, and our Next Step services are available at our Lawrence Street Community Center and 48th Avenue Center. Our goal is that these short-term solutions help you gain some stability as you work toward a path out of homelessness.

Rehabilitation & Recovery

Men who have suffered from addiction, abuse or other destructive habits may qualify to join the Mission’s New Life Program to make a lasting change in their lives. In the program, participants are given the opportunity to become productive, self-sufficient members of society. This program is operated in two locations, The Crossing (Denver) and Harvest Farm (Wellington, CO).

Transitional Programs

Homelessness is a struggle that affects anyone, sometimes even despite having consistent income. Our transitional programs are designed to help participants with steady income find long-term stability, while transitioning out of homelessness.

Food Pantry & Clothing

If you are at risk of becoming homeless and are struggling to meet your needs of food, hygiene products or clothing for yourself or your family, we invite you to get help through our community outreach services. These services are designed to provide assistance to those who are struggling to provide for their own needs, especially women, families and the elderly.

Please note, Denver Rescue Mission does not provide rent or utility assistance through these services. Please contact your local city/county for assistance programs.

Minors Seeking Assistance…

All the programs and most of the general services we offer here at Denver Rescue Mission are designed for those who are over 18 years of age or minors with a parent or guardian in a program. Minors who are experiencing homelessness without a parent or guardian have unique situations that our programs are not designed to assist with, however, other organizations may be a good fit.

We encourage you to reach out to one of these organizations if you or someone you know are a minor experiencing homelessness:


Food, Clothing and Hygiene Products

One service that may be available to you is our food pantry, clothing and hygiene products. If you cannot afford food or clothing, the Mission’s food pantry, clothing and hygiene items are available once per-month to those in need.
