As a non-profit construction company, we support families in need every day through free energy efficiency upgrades including furnaces, insulation, hot water heaters, light bulbs, water saving measures and more. Collectively, we saved our clients $300,000 on their utility bills last year. Since the work is permanent, this equates to $3,000,000 over a ten year period!
Homeward Pikes Peak consists of two main programs: an outpatient treatment clinic and five housing programs serving approximately 250 adults and thin children annually. We serve adults, pregnant single moms, families, and Veterans. Through intensive case management, outpatient treatment, street outreach, and advocacy we are working to end homelessness permanently.
LFSRM walks with the vulnerable through services that heal, strengthen, and provide hope. We strive to partner with local communities to meet the existing needs of Colorado Springs. We support foster youth through safe placement and support services, work to prevent child abuse and neglect with a free respite child care center, and help refugees and asylees successfully resettle into the community.
TESSA provides comprehensive healing services for victims of DV/SA throughout the Pikes Peak region. Services include our Safehouse program, 24/7 Safe Line, confidential advocacy, counseling services, legal and housing aid, youth and children's programming as well as community outreach and educational resources. Through these programs and services, TESSA strives to realize our vision of a community free of violence.
The Place provides the roofs, resources and relationships that help youth exit homelessness. We work with youth ages 15 to 24, creating a safe environment of support, encouragement and hope. We are the only nonprofit organization in Colorado Springs that offers a full convergence of trauma-informed, developmentally appropriate and strength-based services for youth in homelessness.
Everyone deserves a life free of violence full of love, respect, equality and consent. Through 1 on 1 advocacy, therapy, groups, leadership development, building a sense of community & mitigating barriers to services like fees, language, cultural aspects & stigma we move to a individualistic form of justice. With evidence-based curricula & trauma informed practices we aim to achieve each survivors idea of hope.
