Welcome home!

Help make home a little more special for our newest neighbors!

We also have an opportunity to welcome others to their home this fall. Just north of downtown, at 2075 Broadway, work is underway on a six-story residence that will be an important step in the fight to end homelessness in metropolitan Denver. Renaissance Downtown Lofts, a supportive housing project for 101 chronically homeless individuals, will be the 18th development built by the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless. This project was enabled by the Denver Social Impact Bond program, which combines government, business and philanthropic partners in a unique program targeting the needs of the homeless.

The residents of Downtown Lofts will be among our community's most challenged. Most will have experience with Denver emergency services, including police, jail, the courts and emergency rooms. The goal of Downtown Lofts is to provide them stable housing and supportive services, enabling them to lead more stable and productive lives.

Realizing that homeless individuals moving into Downtown Lofts have little in the way of personal possessions or the basic necessities of apartment living, we have begun to collect kitchen, bath and other household goods to help welcome them to their new homes. These items, which most of us take for granted, will be invaluable in helping the homeless in this major life transition. It will also show them that we consider them to be important members of our diverse community, and support them individually.

 

Help us provide a warm welcome to our newest neighbors by donating items from these lists:

Homecoming 2017 forwebKitchen items: sponges, dish soap, dishwasher pods, multi-purpose cleaner, frying pans with lids, sauce pans with lids, spatulas, mixing/serving spoons, baking sheets, measuring cups and spoons, paper towels, can openers, mixing/serving bowls, platters, plastic storage containers, pitchers, coffee pots, toasters, laundry detergent

Bath items: bath towels, wash cloths, toilet paper, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bars of soap, shaving cream, deodorant, shower curtains with rings, hair brushes and combs, toilet brushes with holders, sponges, toilet bowl cleaner

Bedroom items: twin sheet sets, blankets, pillows

Household items: buckets and mops, scissors, hammers, phillips/standard screw drivers, brooms, flashlights, pens and pencils, sewing kits, vacuums, kitchen stools, clocks, lanyards for ID badges

Pick up a Homecoming Sunday card at one of the Sanctuary doors, the Level 3 Welcome Cart or the Level 2 church office, which includes a list of these items that you can carry with you. 

Please bring new, donated items to the church office on or before Homecoming Sunday, September 10.

Monetary contributions are also needed for the Coalition to purchase twin mattresses, bed bug-proof mattress covers and other furnishings. We have set up three ways in which you can donate to the Downtown Lofts:
