Catholic Charities to open largest women’s-only shelter in Denver

Mayor Michael B. Hancock, Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila to speak at new shelter opening

Denver, CO—The City of Denver and Archdiocese of Denver will join Catholic Charities in opening the new Samaritan House Women’s Shelter—the largest women’s shelter in Denver that will provide 150 beds to single women facing homelessness.

Through a unique public-private partnership, Catholic Charities of Denver will mark the grand opening on Aug. 24 of the newly renovated shelter in northeast Denver, which will offer 100 single women access to emergency shelter and 50 women access to resources in a 29-day, non-medical detox program. The new facility, in combination with existing shelter space, enables Catholic Charities to provide overnight emergency shelter to 250 single women.

The opening of the shelter will also be celebrated and supported during the annual Sam’s Supper dinner on Aug. 25, which will raise funds to support women and families experiencing homelessness.

WHAT: The opening of a 32,000-square-foot building in northeast Denver to offer shelter and resources for single women seeking relief from homelessness. A partnership between the city and archdiocese will help Catholic Charities serve the growing number of vulnerable homeless women in the Denver Metro area, including those who are elderly.

WHEN: The opening begins at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 24, at Samaritan House Women’s Shelter, 6240 Smith Road, Denver. Attendees will gather for opening statements and tour the new shelter until 1 p.m.

EVENT: Statements from Catholic Charities of Denver President and CEO Larry Smith followed by Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila of the Archdiocese of Denver.
