Team Samaritan House is back! For the eighth consecutive year, Team Samaritan House will bike in the annual Ride the Rockies tour to help those experiencing homelessness.
Tom Schwein and his cycling partner Tom Dea created Team Samaritan House to help raise awareness of the need to fight homelessness. Each year the team has grown in riders and passion. This year, 100 plus riders are expected to participate. All riders are faithful to the cause and committed to fundraise a minimum of $1,500 each. Over the past seven years, the Team Samaritan House has raised more than $500,000 to provide clothing, shelter and a fresh start for individuals and families facing homelessness. The ultimate goal of all Charities' shelters is to help residents become self-reliant by providing needed individualized assistance.
Why Help? Funds raised will benefit Catholic Charities four homeless shelters: Samaritan House, Samaritan House Women’s Shelter, Guadalupe Community Center in Greeley, and The Mission in Fort Collins. Each dollar will help change the lives of those experiencing homelessness in our local communities.
More than 212,000 nights of shelter in emergency and transitional housing were provided by Catholic Charities in the year ended June 30, 2017.
