Helping people who are experiencing homlessness
The downtown Denver Samaritan House homeless shelter and the other Sam House shelters in Colorado (including the brand new women’s shelter in North Denver which opened, in part, because of money raised by Team Samaritan House Cycling) are beyond compare when it comes to helping our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness regain their self worth, get stable work, and get into their own housing.
Samaritan House does AMAZING work and asks only two questions when people arrive: 1) Hi, how are you? and 2) How can we help?
Individuals or families who move into the residential program at Sam House are given help with job skills training, counseling, and optional spiritual guidance. The success rates for getting those who are experiencing homelessness back out on their own are truly remarkable. If you’d ever like to come down and see Sam House and help prepare and serve dinner or otherwise help out or get a tour, please let me know!
My unlce Tom Dea taught me that sometimes just calling a person by their first name or extending a hand or a hug might be the first time in a very, very long time someone experiencing homelessness has heard their name aloud or has even been touched at all. Literally reaching out goes a long way!
For the nine years Team Samaritan House Cycling bikes 500 miles across the Rocky Mountains in June to raise funds to help those in our city who are experiencing homelessness. This will be my fifth year with the team riding the epic Ride the Rockies tour across the Colorado Mountains.
My uncles Tom Dea and Tim Dea got me started with cycling and riding for Team Samaritan House Cycling. Spending time with them and my unlce Dan Dea has been a great blessing for me.
I’m honored to help out such a beautiful organization. The top five reasons for homelessness in Denver are 1) drug and alcohol addiction, 2) domestic violence and abuse, 3) mental health issues, 4) loss of job, and 5) rising cost of rent.
Sometimes in our lives, we can all be just a step or two away from being in a very bad spot. Let’s help our brothers and sisters currently experiencing homelessness regain their self worth and get back into a stable situation!
I would be so grateful iif you would donate any amount all all to Samaritan House in my name. Your donation will go directly to Samaritan House Homeless Shelters.
Thank you so much! - Adam
