Mile High Poverty


Denver, Colorado


Urban poverty 

The Mile High City of Denver, Colorado is known for its 5,280 ft. elevation, the Gold Rush and the Broncos. Nestled between the High Plains and the Rocky Mountains, the city boosts a diverse offering of things to do and see. Life for its residents isn’t always easy with 40% of the homeless population currently working yet unable to afford housing. The city has taken up the ambitious goal of ending homelessness in ten years! You can help! 

Participants will visit, volunteer and learn from non-profits on the ground working for change in their communities.
