Samaritan House is a ministry operated by Catholic Charities, a 501(c)3. Since 1986, Samaritan House has helped people secure sufficient food and clothing, the ability to earn a living wage and affordable housing.
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
Join Project Helping volunteers to serve a hot dinner to women in need, clean up after dinner, and help set up the sleeping area for the night. Holy Rosary is an emergency overnight women’s shelter at Samaritan House Denver with Catholic Charities. Women are provided breakfast and dinner as well as a safe and warm place to sleep. We need volunteers who can help serve a meal and share some time with the women who stay with Holy Rosary.
