Founded in 1986, The Gathering Place is the only daytime drop-in center in metropolitan Denver that serves women, transgender individuals, and their children who are experiencing poverty, many of whom are also experiencing homelessness. While we refer to those we serve as “members,” no fees are ever charged for programs or services.
The Interfaith Alliance of Colorado (Code: interfaith)
The Safe Outdoor Space is a joint effort between the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, the Colorado Village Collaborative and others. It aims to provide a safe area for the un-housed during the pandemic, and with evictions spiking, this work is now more important than ever.

We have also began our Mobile Baby Essentials program to be able to deliver essential supplies to undeserved populations.

Through the context of long-term relationships, Dry Bones Denver seeks to meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of houseless and street-connected youth and young adults. During this global pandemic, we are still offering our friends experiencing houselessness shower and laundry appointments, and more masks will help us continue to offer this service throughout the pandemic’s duration. We are also continuing to engage in street outreach and could use more masks so we can keep handing them out to people who need one.

Project Worthmore was founded in 2011 by Frank and Carolyn Anello as a response to the acute need for assistance of the refugee families in their community. From our start offering makeshift English classes in living rooms, we now offer six comprehensive programs to thousands of refugee clients. Around half of our staff are from the refugee community, helping us to better listen, empower and support those who have come here to rebuild their lives. Strategically located off of east Colfax, Project Worthmore is in the heart of the refugee community and therefore easily accessed by our clients. Our team and impact continue to grow as we play a role in supporting people during the worst refugee crisis since World War II.
