April 9, 2014 | By | No Comments

Follow the link below as one of our former interns, Chris Morton, reflects on his experience as a Dry Bones intern in 2002.

We’re super proud of the man Chris has become and the way he continues to live his life among others. His entire blog is worth your time, and his reflections about Dry Bones 12 years later are profound.

This thing called Dry Bones continues to shape all of us.

Got My Keys!

I met “Bella” as she was sitting with a group of friends several years ago.  She was a little above the average age of the group. Still, she was accepted and seemed comfortable in the surroundings of younger street kids.  Her careful attention to her makeup and hair, along with her huge red patent-leather purse, caused her to stand out to me.

Human Trafficking and the Familiar Quest for Love

February 25, 2014 | By | 2 Comments

by Rebekah Duke, staff member

Several of the DB team were able to attend a workshop focused on human trafficking this week. As I sat down in my seat at the beginning of the day, I suddenly realized how heavy the weight of the topic would be. We heard from FBI agents and leaders of the police task force who are fighting human trafficking right here, in our own city. The discussion was not about Thailand or India. Right here, right now, people are slaves. It’s happening in our neighborhoods and American cities. And you might guess who is at the highest risk — homeless youth. My friends. Read More

THOUGHTS ON “RESCUE”

December 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

RESCUE – (from the Dry Bones’ Mission)
Within the context of relationships, hope, love, opportunity, and beauty are revealed.  Everyone’s faith grows.  We all get “saved” in exciting and unexpected ways.

Throughout the streets of Denver, I get to witness story after story of rescue.  Rescue occurs in a moment, or the combination of several moments, and brings true life.

It often involves hard work. But still, rescue, in its many forms, is necessary Read More

CORE MOTIVATIONS

by Samantha Stroh, ’13 Fall Semester Intern

Recently I was asked to help find resources for a woman named “Barbara” and her three young children.  Barbara had recently left her husband because of his drug use.  Though she and the kids always have a friend’s floor to sleep on or a bed for all of them to share, Barbara was beginning to feel herself slipping into the ways of the streets.  So, I started looking for Read More

In Alcoholics Anonymous, HALT is an acronym used to help prevent relapse. HALT stands for the vulnerable circumstances that often create relapse moments. H is for Hungry; A is for Angry; L stands for Lonely; T is for Tired. When I first read of HALT, I immediately thought of Read More
