Faces of Hope: Ramona

Meet Ramona
“I came to Samaritan House a year ago. I got clothing, food and started taking classes. After getting to know staff, they brought up my self-esteem. I didn’t think I had accomplished anything. I guess you don’t always see it, but others do. They’ve actually taught me a lot of skills—dealing with myself and being ...

Faces of Hope: Sharla

“Kinship Services was my first contact. I told them about my story. The emotional support—that is the biggest thing for me now. Our situation is more unique than others. My grandson was six months old when I started caring for him. My daughter had no interest in parenting. Then she met another man and later ...

Faces of Hope: Margaret

“I was living in an apartment on the second floor with no elevator. It wasn’t working for me. I’m 63 years old and have arthritis. Three weeks ago, I moved into Holy Family Plaza in Denver (of Archdiocesan Housing Inc). Then I got connected to all this support. They told me about today’s event, the ...

Faces of Hope: Nehimiah

“The struggle is real. It’s a long story, but I wanted my son. I was going through a divorce, and she kicked me out. I went through a lot of hard work and then job terminations. Now my son and I are moving into a two-bedroom apartment. It’s so awesome. I’m cleaning our room at ...

Elijah “I love to play the violin. I learned to play the cello, guitar and sing, too, when I went to a performing arts school in Albuquerque. I once auditioned for talent shows but my life was a mess. I lived in a tent in the backyard of my mom’s boyfriend’s house. They hate me. ...

Faces of Hope: Aaron

I came to The Mission veteran program on January 4. I'm originally from the southeast, Georgia. I served in the Army from 2008 to 2011. I did maintenance on the whole patriot missile system. I kept everything in working order. It was definitely an experience. I loved it. Every day you learned something new. You’re ...

Faces of Hope: Molly

"I’m Molly and this is my family. My husband and three children and I have been staying here at Samaritan House shelter. But we had some cake today to celebrate—we’re moving out. We got housing through Salvation Army and we’re moving soon. It’s a three-bedroom, two-bath apartment. Samaritan House has been very helpful.  They made ...

Faces of Hope: women’s shelter

I'm 31 years old. I had a fiancé once, but he committed suicide. I also had a job at Good Times. Then my brother, who is mentally ill and schizophrenic, got my keys and took off with my car. My ID and wallet were in there. I lost it all. We had no other choice ...

Faces of Hope: Rick

I’m Rick and this is my daughter, Marie. She’s 7 years old. We’re moving in to our own apartment this week. We’ve been staying on the family floor at Samaritan House shelter until we could get back on our feet. I was kicked out of my Lakewood apartment and we ended up in a hotel. ...

Faces of Hope: Judy

My name is Judy, and I am 56 years old. I was working full time but then needed a total knee replacement. Since I was unable to work, after six weeks of not being able to pay my rent, I was kicked out. This began my journey of homelessness. I started out living in my ...

Faces of Hope: Sherrell and Tiffany

Today our family is moving out of Samaritan House shelter. We found an apartment! We’re used to paying $525 for rent. Now we’re paying $1,350. The apartment has a lot of pluses. The boys will go to a good school in our neighborhood. We left our hometown in Illinois to seek a better life for ...
