Too often when we think of homelessness we think of the people on street corners holding signs. However, according to the 2018 Point in Time survey conducted by the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative, more than 26% of people experiencing homelessness in our city are families. This means that the single adults on street corners panhandling are not the complete representation of poverty in our city.
The hidden homeless that you are going to read about in this edition of Changing Lives are impossible to count through one survey.
The good news is that there is hope for these families who go unnoticed. There is hope and comfort for families through our STAR Transitional Program, our Family Rescue Ministry and our Family Refugee Services. Denver Rescue Mission is a place of hope, a place where we can enter into relationship with people who are struggling and let them know we care, God cares, and He has a plan for their lives.
Whether people are hidden or in plain view, we want to help, and you make it possible for us to provide this help. It is a blessing to partner with you as we continue to serve people experiencing poverty in our city. People’s lives are truly being changed as they experience hope through you, and through Jesus.
God bless you and thank you!
