Denver Rescue Mission
December 5, 2009

The Denver Rescue Mission is the best bet in Metro Denver when it comes to your monetary and gift donations. I've been involved with them for several years and see how lives are changed. So many people think of them as just a soup kitchen. But I have met the folks who participate in their long-term programs, where lives are restored. The cycle of poverty and homelessness is ended because of programs offered by the Denver Rescue Mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am a volunteer who always thought of a homeless person as an old man, pushing a cart filled with his belongings. Since volunteering, I have seen homeless people who have jobs, families and single women. I saw the face of homelessness in Denver.

What is great at the Mission is rehabilitation program participants give tours to volunteers and also help train people on volunteer duties. You receive that one on one interaction with the people you are helping. It was a very meaningful experience.
