Thank you for taking a moment to learn about the service agencies in Colorado Springs that are proactively addressing the diverse causes of poverty and homelessness in our community. From mental health care to substance abuse programs, housing opportunities to health care, you can make a difference by giving a hand up, not a handout.
With your donation to the HelpCOS initiative, you are supporting the Springs Rescue Mission's Work Engagement programs, including the newly launched HelpCOS My City program. The program sends volunteers experiencing homelessness to help conduct cleanups through the Mill St. neighborhood. In return for their efforts in these cleanups and other work experience, they receive incentives from the Mission, including job coaches, training, shelter stability, lunches and professional references to put them on the path to full employment.
