Mission: The Denver Rescue Mission (DRM) was founded in 1892 to serve the less fortunate in our community. Through practical programs of public awareness, education, free medical and dental services, shelter, food and clothing distribution and through training, teaching and work therapy, the Mission aims to return the poor, needy and homeless to society as self-sufficient, productive citizens. DRM is a non-denominational Christian organization and does not discriminate in its provision of programs or services on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed or religion, age, handicap, marital status, sex or sexual orientation. We assist men, women and children. An independent Board of Directors oversees the Mission. Seventy-five cents of every dollar given to the Mission is used to fund our programs and services. DRM receives no government funding and relies on donations as our support.

The Denver Rescue Mission is an amazing, amazing organization. They do SO many more things than just provide emergency housing and food for the homeless. The organization clearly cares deeply to see the poor and needy come full circle and have their lives restored - meaning they are self-suficient, productive members of society.
The organization is well run, organized, diligent in using funds wisely and most importantly, the employees all have amazing hearts for the people that they serve.

I've seen lives changed. I've been to a couple graduation ceremonies to see people come through their "New Life Rehabilitation Program" and it's amazing to see the transformation. I've also seen the hearts of my close friends changed as they serve the Mission.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would love to see the model they've built expanded to other cities in Colorado and more importantly, I think they could become a national organization that lays the groundwork on how to build a successful mission.
