Catholic Charities of Denver shelters, feeds, houses, educates, counsels and provides emergency assistance and critical services to our neighbors across Northern Colorado. As the charitable arm of the Archdiocese of Denver, we serve thousands of neighbors each year with life-changing support as they work to improve their lives.
When Coloradans think of Catholic Charities, they often think of Samaritan House in downtown Denver, the first building in the nation built specifically to house people experiencing homelessness. Today, at multiple Samaritan House locations, we provide overnight shelter to more women in Denver and across Northern Colorado than any other organization. This is particularly important because we have three times more women experiencing homelessness than before the pandemic. Of course, we also provide a full-range of services for men, families and veterans in Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley and on the Western Slope.
Marisol Services is a critical ministry within Catholic Charities. Marisol Health supports women’s healthcare needs, Marisol Homes provides safe shelter for families as they get back on their feet and Marisol Family provides young families with diapers, materials and educational programing.
Catholic Charities has five additional important ministries: Archdiocesan Housing, with 30 service-enriched affordable housing complexes; Early Childhood Education, serving children and families at seven locations; Counseling Services, which provide support through St. Raphael Counseling and homebased programs; Faith in Action, which includes the Respect Life Office, parish outreach and volunteer relations; and Community Outreach, serving Coloradans with senior and kindship services, food assistance, immigration support and more.
