Faces of Hope: Kelly

Kelly just keeps moving forward. She sees her time at Samaritan House 48th as one stop along her destination to stable living.

“I’m here for now but this is not my destination,” the 50-year-old shares while heating up hot cocoa. Wearing a purple coat and fleece jacket, she was on her way to taking a smoking break outside the shelter. 

One month ago, she was staying in a Colorado Springs shelter and then was told about Samaritan House 48th, one of Catholic Charities’ shelters in Denver for single women facing homelessness.

“I’m making it an okay experience for me,” she says. “I’m focused on finding a place to live and planting a seed here.”

She admits to feeling tired. Ever since her mother died 10 years ago, it’s been difficult for her. She heard her brother died, too, but is no longer in touch with the rest of her family in Georgia.

Regardless, Kelly keeps her mind focused on the future. She calls this time her “rock bottom” and is reflecting on how to change her life to be successful in the future.
