For 127 years, Denver Rescue Mission has been meeting the needs of the most vulnerable men, women and children in Colorado through emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional programs and community outreach.

The oldest full-service Christian charity in the Rocky Mountain region, Denver Rescue Mission operates nine facilities in Denver and Northern Colorado including: the Lawrence Street Shelter, Lawrence Street Community Center, The Crossing, Ministry Outreach Center, Holly Center, Harvest Farm, Fort Collins Rescue Mission, the Administration & Education Building and the 48th Street Center (operated in partnership with the City of Denver).

When you give to the Mission, you are providing for the immediate needs of people experiencing homelessness through warm meals, safe shelter and basic necessities like showers, restrooms and clothing. Additionally, you are offering life-changing opportunities for men, women and families who need a second chance. The programs at the Mission guide people on a path toward permanent housing and a productive, self-sufficient lifestyle. There are various volunteer opportunities with the Mission including: serving meals, mentoring adults or children, tutoring adults or children, and sorting donated items.
