Giving to Those in Need - The Salvation Army Intermountain
We are proud to support the work and mission of The Salvation Army which has been in existence for over 150 years without discrimination.
For December 2020, The Salvation Army Intermountain is our focus for helping those in need.
The Salvation Army Intermountain Division encompasses Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and eastern Montana through the broadest array of social services.
These range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children.
For every dollar The Salvation Army spends, 82 cents is used to support those services.
The Salvation Army Crossroads Shelter has been serving the community at its 1901 29th Street, Denver CO 80216 location since 1983. From the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the shelter has transformed into a 24-hour emergency shelter to decrease the time individuals spend homeless and increase the capacity at the shelter.
The Salvation Army Lambuth Family Center opened in 1987 as a transitional living facility for families. Today, as a 90-day family emergency shelter, Lambuth serves approximately 80 families a year. The goal is for all families to stay in shelters for as little time as possible and upon exit secure permanent and stable housing in the Denver community through trauma informed supportive case management and enrichment services.
Last year in Colorado, The Salvation Army served 337,352 people, provided 979,658 nights of shelter, served 1,235,049 meals and gave 39,600 toys to children in need at Christmas.
Your donations help them meet the needs of those most vulnerable in Colorado.
Enjoy this special time of year.
