The Trinity Connection:
The Denver Rescue Mission makes a difference in the lives of people in need by offering programs of rehabilitation, food and clothing distribution, spiritual counseling, and many other services. Each day, through these programs, we reassure people who have lost hope that they are not alone and that God cares for them. Our purpose is to "Change Lives in the Name of Christ."
In its 123-year history, the goal is to return the poor, needy, and homeless to society as self-sufficient, productive citizens. Over these years Trinity members have played an important part in the support and leadership of this organization. Our flagship location is at Lawrence and Park Avenue West, the "Jesus Saves" building as it is known on the street. Here food, shelter, clothing and counseling are available. Other locations include:
- Champa House for single mothers with children
- Harvest Farm in Wellington, CO, a 100-acre working farm where 60 men raise livestock and learn to turn their lives around
- The Crossing for men in the New Life Program and families in transition
- Fort Collins Rescue Mission in Fort Collins, CO, providing emergency shelter and food, as well as the Steps to Success program
- Ministry Outreach Center, which is home to the administrative offices and central warehouse
- Family Rescue Ministry, which provides transitional housing and mentoring for people in need
Mentoring is provided with the support of many churches and other organizations. Trinity members have provided a number of these mentoring teams. All this would not be possible without the volunteers who provide over 65,000 hours each year in helping people.
