Family Services

Family Services

Denver Rescue Mission’s Family Services incorporates four transformative programs focused on helping homeless working families, seniors and refugees achieve a life of self-sufficiency. In addition to Mission staff, local congregations and organizations help guide participants toward program goals and are a vital resource of Family Services.

  • STAR Transitional Program

    At The Crossing, families in our STAR Transitional Program are given an opportunity to experience affordable transitional housing in a clean and safe community setting. Our dedicated staff works to help STAR Transitional Program participants achieve self-sufficiency and permanent housing through life skills, career development and computer skills workshops; counseling; Bible study; and frequent meetings with a designated STAR Transitional Program case manager. This program stipulates that one adult per household must have an income of at least $500 per month and emphasizes the importance of financial responsibility by requiring residents to pay a portion of their housing, utility and program fees. Participants also wishing to obtain their GED can be matched with a tutor, and will only be responsible for half the cost of GED testing. Participation in the program is between six months and two years.

  • Family Rescue Ministry (FRM)

    FRM helps working families who are homeless secure stable housing by funding first month’s rent and deposit in a long-term housing solution, as well as pairs them with mentor teams who help guide them toward self-sufficiency. Learn more about Family Rescue Ministry.

  • Family Refugee Services (FRS)

    In partnership with Lutheran Family Services, FRS helps refugee families with limited relational and material support adjust to life in the United States. In order for refugees to qualify for eight months of housing assistance, FRS interns at Denver Rescue Mission recruit mentor teams who provide clients with basic needs, community orientation, employment and financial skills, and social and emotional support. Bilingual assistance is also provided if necessary. FRS works with refugees from all over the world, including Somalia, Sudan, Liberia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and Iraq.
