Host an Event
Imagine the ways your friends, church or employees can do something hands-on for those experiencing homelessness in Metro Denver.
• Host an event and donate a portion of ticket sales
• Contribute a portion of proceeds for a product or food item
• Hold an office drive for needed items including canned food, clothing, winter items or hygiene items

Giving Opportunities

Financial contributions directly help feed, shelter and provide critical services to the most vulnerable population in Denver and Northern Colorado. Cash, check and credit cards accepted. For more information on giving opportunities, visit or call 303-297-1815.

Gift-In-Kind donations are extremely important to sustain the needs of men, women and families in the community. The following are needed throughout the year: canned food, non-perishable food items, clothing, hygiene items, baby items, and gently used furniture. Donations can be dropped off at the Ministry Outreach Center, 5725 E. 39th. Avenue.

Enterprise Zone Tax Credit is a 25% Colorado state tax credit to those who make cash donations to qualifying programs. In addition to generating a Colorado state tax credit, your contribution is also deductible as a charitable gift for reducing state and federal taxes. Please note there is limited Enterprise Zone availability.
