The daily operations, funding, and supplies are provided through the kindness of our volunteers. Along with volunteers from the Rising Church, many additional community parishes and churches, citizens in the Denver metro area, and many current and former clients of Mission Arvada contribute to program efforts. These individuals are the best ambassadors of the program to other clients as they can speak to their own experiences in the program and help provide continuing support. This relationship also creates a sense of community among past and present Mission Arvada clients.
At Mission Arvada, we work with homeless individuals to transform overwhelming negative forces and experiences in their lives and communities into positive and proactive action toward resiliency and sustainability. Your volunteerism and/or financial contribution would help sustain and expand Mission Arvada’s programs, helping us to connect with and improve more homeless individual’s chances for success and self-sufficiency.
Key Mission Arvada volunteer needs: shower monitor, clothing bank monitor, preparing and serving meals, front desk check in, donations processing, movers for clients getting into section 8 apartments, Saturday food bank volunteers, drivers to take clients to appointments, administrative assistance, case managers, and more.
Future: Volunteers to begin working in apartment complexes and mobile home parks. Whereas our homeless day shelter needs volunteers on weekdays, these future volunteers can do their work on weekends, thus extending volunteer opportunities to those who work Monday through Friday.
Key Mission Arvada tangible needs: a three quarter ton truck to help move our clients furniture into apartments, pick up and deliver Food Bank of the Rockies orders and make grocery runs to area grocery warehouses. Storage facility for storing furniture and household donations for clients getting into section 8 apartments.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
