As Project Renew, we are inspired to become everyday peacemakers by cultivating partnerships and curating immersive experiences that thoughtfully and compassionately move toward the brokenness in us and the world.
In the past three months, Denver has done a remarkable job of providing shelter for more than 3000 migrants who have arrived and/or passed through our city. Most of these individuals have made an unthinkable journey from South America to escape persecution, violence, or poverty. Denver and the state of Colorado have helped many of these individuals and families with transportation costs to get their desired destinations.
Recently the number of daily arrivals have sharply decreased from the end of the year when we were seeing more than 120 each day. And still, nearly 1000 individuals remain in temporary shelter here in the Denver area. We are proud of our hospitality efforts over the last four months in which Project Renew was able lead alongside other non-profit partners to provide temporary shelter and transition care to more than 100 individuals. We saw more than 250 volunteers step up to serve and coordinate in a variety of ways.
We also assisted more than 20 individuals toward finding more permanent housing here in the Denver area. It’s the collaborative work of helping people find creative housing options that will be most import in the days ahead.

Kenya Learning Journey
We will be visiting two of our dear education-focused partners based in some of Kenya’s most underserved communities. One partner is located in the bustling city of Nairobi, and the other is in a mountainous, rural community near Naivasha. This is a great trip for educators, those who work with special needs populations, or if you are simply interested in learning more about the complex contexts in which our partners work.
Trip Dates: July 22-29, 2023
Wilderness experiences are something a bit different that we offer at Project Renew. From daytime Contemplative Wanders to three-day backpacking Soul Expeditions, we have a lot of opportunities where you will discover deeper parts of yourself and encounter the divine in a unique way. We love to see people take steps toward becoming everyday peacemakers. We invite you into wilderness experiences where you can explore what your soul might be trying to tell you about your next steps toward healing, growth, calling, or some other unexpected surprise that you’ll never see coming.
- Contemplative Wanders: 5/13, 8/4, 8/19
- Soul Expeditions: 5/27-5/29, 7/14-7/16, 8/25-27
