Marisol Homes’ 30-day event to create home environment for many domestic violence survivors

Denver, CO—Marisol Homes shelter for women and children launched a Move-in Challenge, asking the community to transform its new location into a move-in ready home.

As the City of Denver pursues a multi-faceted strategy to address homelessness and affordable housing, Marisol Homes is creating a home environment for expectant mothers and single women with children, who are experiencing homelessness. Already gaining attention on Facebook, the 30-day challenge is collecting donations to furnish 16 bedrooms for single mothers, 86 percent of whom are domestic violence survivors.

“What an amazing opportunity for the children and families,” said Amy Eurek, program director for Marisol Homes. “At our new location, more women and their children will have a home to help them rebuild their lives and grow as a family. But we need furniture to make their place welcoming. You can make this move happen by donating so we can get needed furniture.”

Construction was completed on a convent-turned-home that includes a large kitchen and dining room, employment and study room, craft area, laundry room and chapel. Move-in for the families starts on June 24. Tours and interviews are available to media at the shelter location, which is not disclosed to the public. Email to set up a tour and for more information.

Marisol Homes (formerly Father Ed Judy House) provides stability for women who are experiencing homelessness. The long-term shelter assists as they integrate back into the community, providing support and services to rebuild their lives. At the time of moving out, 76 percent of Marisol families move into stable housing.

The challenge is to provide furniture by donating $78 to adopt part of a room, $500 to participate at the Adopt-a-Family level and provide a beginnings kit, or $6,000 to participate at the Adopt-a-Room level and furnish a complete room.

“Our residents—moms with kids who are in need—could really use your help,” Eurek said. “When you transform a room, you transform a life. Let’s make this move happen!”

Marisol Homes is a part of Marisol Services, a health, human and social services network for women in need. It operates under Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver. Learn more about Marisol Homes and the Move-in Challenge at ccdenver.org/movein.
