Here is a great picture of our Denver leadership team, we are always looking for more dedicated volunteers to join us!!
This is a great opportunity for a team, group of friends, or family to do a one-time volunteer service (2 - 8 people).
Every Sunday, the Denver team coordinates a warm meal for the homeless youth of Colorado. We rely on groups of volunteers to prepare, bring and serve the food. Our turn out of kids on a Sunday is anywhere from 50 to 75, so we ask that enough food is prepared for about 60 people.
Does this sound like something you'd want to help with? It's easy to sign up HERE! After signing up, you will be contacted with additional details.
On this night during outreach, we ran into one of our youth and sat down with him for an hour and had a heartfelt, empowering conversation with him. He explained how he had been on the streets for as long as he can remember, forced to be there after aging out of state foster care.
We walk the streets every week; sometimes we don't find or reach our youth at all, but sometimes we connect-and that is one more kid we can help get off the streets!
THIS is what outreach is about: we find our youth we help, stabilize and most importantly, we CARE.
November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month!
