We provide support, safety-net services to people of all faiths, background and cultures. The agency has grown
from a Depression-Era emergency assistance program to one of Colorado's largest non-profit human service providers.
Over the years, the agency has evolved to meet society's changing needs, but continues to stay true to its purpose
of working with the vulnerable and the poor to alleviate poverty and promote self-reliance. We serve thousands of
people each year in three interlocking areas: Women’s Services, Family and Child Care Services, and Housing
and Shelter Services. We are also a first responder in disaster relief services, such as the 2013 floods in
