THOUGHTS ON “REACH”

December 19, 2013 | By | No Comments

More Than Meets The Eye – Video and Questions

November 21, 2013 | By | No Comments

We recently hosted a celebration and fundraising event in downtown Denver. Many of you attended and were able to see and meet Guyia, Mike, and Danny. For those of you who missed it, we invite you to watch this video.

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
