Colder Weather Leaves Homeless Families At Risk

What you can do:

Volunteer: Overnight volunteers are needed for a temporary shelter for families. Please call Ani Rose Whaleswan  at 237-8726, or email at [email protected]


Donate to Catholic Charities for motel vouchers for families and other vulnerable people.  Vouchers provide temporary shelter as a bridge to stable housing.  The estimated need is 200 vouchers at $85 each to meet demand through end of year.  Other needs:  motel “snack packs” ensure kids don’t go to bed hungry! Contact us at (719) 636-2345 or send donations to 228 N. Cascade Ave. Colorado Springs, CO 80903.
