CREATIVE SERVICE PARTNERS
BUS STOP MINISTRIES
Bus Stop Ministries has been serving people experiencing homelessness in the Denver Uptown neighborhood for 21 years. Bus Stop Ministry meets weekly on Tuesdays at 7am for a healthy breakfast, a sermon, prayer and community. The design of the ministry is ‘one person at a time’ where relationships are prioritized and friendships are formed. Friends can then provide assistance walking through life’s obstacles together through support and prayer. The ministry prides itself on providing delicious morning meals as we’re called to ‘love our neighbor as ourselves’ and not simply provide leftovers.

DRY BONES DENVER
Dry Bones staff and volunteers are committed to serving the large population of homeless teens and young adults living in downtown Denver. The youth who live on the streets of Denver range in age from 12 into their mid-twenties. Dry Bones connects these young people with resources, nutrition, entertainment, and new friends. Dry Bones is a place where followers of Christ connect with those living on the streets and all of our faith grows as we discover new life and good news together.

EXTREME COMMUNITY MAKEOVER
Extreme Community Makeover (ECM) coordinates volunteer teams to partner with underserved people to improve their own homes and neighborhoods. These projects build safer environments; cultivate community among residents, neighborhoods, and networks of local resource providers; and connect residents to a permanent path towards healthy, hopeful, and stable lives. ECM is designed to invite volunteers into a partnership with residents of specific Denver neighborhoods to complete home and neighborhood improvement projects.

You may know us from our neighborhood thrift stores, but did you know that 90 cents of every dollar that comes in to Goodwill goes to fund programs in your community for more than 30,000 individuals every year? Proceeds from our retail stores, as well as donor contributions, fund our highly successful workforce development programs for refugees, at-risk youth, struggling adults, and individuals with disabilities. Each school year Goodwill calls on volunteers to help students make career connections through mock-interviews, career panels and mentoring.

Almost two-thirds of the homeless in Denver are people in families. Joshua Station is a faith-based community helping families make the transformation from homelessness to a healthy, stable living environment. Joshua Station is home to 24 families made up of 43 children and 28 adults who are on the road to self-sufficiency. DCC is involved with organizing events for the children at Joshua Station, providing and sharing community meals with those living at Joshua Station, and helping with child care and tutoring for the children who live there.

NETWORK COFFEE HOUSE
Network is a coffee house for homeless folks in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. It exists in order to build long-term, redemptive relationships with some of the most marginalized people in the city of Denver. We are not primarily a service provider, we simply seek to try to get to know our clients in Christ’s living room over coffee and conversation. In being present in this space, we believe we both encounter Jesus in new ways and communicate dignity to our friends on the street. If you wish to come and hang out with us, we welcome all who would come.

PARK FOREST CARE CENTER
Park Forest Care Center provides quality care for persons with mental illness, brain injuries and dementia. Park Forest is home to a wide variety of people from all walks of life; people who have amazing and touching stories, which we are honored to share in. Most of the residents do not have family and friends to visit and it is left to staff and volunteers to reach out and let the residents know how special and loved they are. Each year, DCC has a Christmas tree with the wish lists of every resident at Park Forest. We are privileged to take those gifts in person and get to see the joy and excitement as they open them!
