Close To Home

Family Promise | Close To HomeSometimes it just comes down to awareness. Metro-Denver residents know there’s homelessness in our community, but the face of need isn’t always what we expect …

Thousands of our neighbors – everyone from children and families to single women and men – have nowhere to call home. And the Close To Home campaign is dedicated to increasing awareness, understanding and action surrounding issues of homelessness.

The Denver Foundation recently conducted research across the metro area, which created the campaign. Here’s what the foundation discovered: “Residents said far too many people cannot meet their basic needs, especially housing, hunger, and a lack of safety or access to basic medical care,” according to the Close To Home website. “They said we need to increase understanding, compassion, and get more people engaged to solve these challenges.”

Family Promise and so many other organizations are supporting these campaign efforts: Learn more and see how you can help!
