Samaritan House 48th opens to meet the needs of women experiencing homelessness

Facility operated by Catholic Charities of Denver to be a center of hope and help

Denver, CO — (June 30, 2021) — Samaritan House 48th, providing overnight emergency housing, meals and other services for women, opened today in northeast Denver as part of Catholic Charities' ongoing commitment to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ to the poor and those in need.

“Samaritan House 48th will double our capacity to serve women,” said Mike Sinnett, vice president of shelters and community outreach for Catholic Charities of Denver. “We've worked closely with the City and County of Denver, and with other providers, to offer women safe shelter and address the struggles they face on a daily basis.”

The Samaritan House 48th building was formerly occupied by the Denver Rescue Mission, which relocated nearby with a facility that serves men only.

Up to 275 women a night may find shelter at Samaritan House 48th, which is part of a community of Samaritan House facilities and services in Northern Colorado. That includes Samaritan House in Downtown Denver, Samaritan House Smith Road, Samaritan House Fort Collins and Guadalupe Community Center in Greeley.=

As part of the launch of Samaritan House 48th, Catholic Charities is putting out the call for volunteers to serve meals, which may amount to an additional 1,000 volunteer hours per month. All those interested are invited to sign up at ccdenver.org/volunteer or call 720-799-9297. To contribute to services for women experiencing homelessness, visit samhousedenver.org/donate.
