Denver, CO—While homeless encampments are cleared this week in downtown Denver, Samaritan House shelter encouraged people living on the sidewalks to come in for shelter and warm meals.
“We have been working with Denver Public Works as they began clearing encampments," said Mike Sinnett, vice president of Shelter Services of Catholic Charities of Denver, on Oct. 29. "We encourage everyone on the streets to seek a better option and come to our shelter for a safe place and warm meals. Samaritan House provides people in need with a supportive environment where they can rebuild their lives. We’re here to help.”
Samaritan House, one of Catholic Charities of Denver’s shelters, provides men, women and families with shelter and a case management program that helps them achieve self-sufficiency. Last year, Samaritan House provided 212,082 shelter nights and assisted residents with 714 job placements. The women’s shelter provides about 273 beds nightly for single women.
