Dear Friends,

Over the last 131 years, Denver Rescue Mission has operated as a dedicated group of Christian believers brought together by the power of the Gospel to save lives, to guide people out of homelessness and to love others as Jesus loved us. We continue to need this community and partnerships, who are as dedicated as we are, to keep changing lives. We have partnerships with more than a dozen other non-profits, social service agencies, businesses, neighborhoods, and government entities. And of course, you, our generous supporters. We all share the same goal: a desire to help people on the margins who are hurting.

More and more, I have found we need everyone in the community to work together to lift each other up and to fight homelessness and poverty. The need to work together in order to see lives changed is critical. We cannot do this work alone. We believe Jesus’ words in Mark 12:30-31:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

Thank you. You are all an important part of this critical work we do to keep our neighbors experiencing homelessness off the streets. God continues to be at work at the Mission and you are a big part of it. May this New Year be filled with God’s peace and hope as we work closely together as a community.

With Gratitude,

Brad Meuli
