Dear Friends,

Some of you may have already heard, but as valued supporters of the life-changing work we do, I wanted to share directly with you that I recently announced my retirement after 24 years as President/CEO. This has been carefully planned and was approved by the Board of Directors in the fall of 2020, with the idea that the succession plan would be put into place in 2023. The Board is currently in the process of working with a search firm with the intent of a smooth transition by fall of this year, and I will stay on as President Emeritus until April 1, 2024.

I am sure that I will have an opportunity to say more at a later date, but I just wanted you to know how much I have personally appreciated your generosity as we have sought to help every person who comes through our doors.

This month’s Changing Lives newsletter is titled, “A Family’s Path to Hope” and talks specifically about MaDonna and her children’s search for a better life. Because of your generosity, she has hope that she did not have before. Thank you!

She is not alone. Over the years, we at the Mission have seen so many men, women and families find their way to a better life. With your help and God’s divine work, we have seen transformation as our wonderful staff come alongside people who are hurting, develop relationships with them and share the love of Jesus.

So, thank you again for your support— financially, through prayer and by volunteering. I have been blessed and humbled to see God work in so many ways; no one but God could have orchestrated the many blessings I have had the pleasure to watch happen at Denver Rescue Mission over these last two and a half decades.

Grateful for you,

Brad Meuli
