The work of Springs Rescue Mission simply wouldn’t be possible without the help of “Community Champions” throughout Colorado Springs and beyond.
Every year, thousands of foundations, businesses, churches, governments and individuals like you help transform the lives of men and women experiencing homelessness, poverty and addiction through their support of the Mission. These compassionate partners promote hope and healing by offering our guests access to safe shelter, healthy meals and essential services. With their help — and yours — hundreds of our city’s most vulnerable individuals are finding housing, regaining their health and getting back to work.
“These businesses, organizations, nonprofits and churches are compassionate members of our community,” said Chief Development Officer Travis Williams. “Together, with thousands of individuals across this beautiful city of Colorado Springs, they contribute to helping our most vulnerable neighbors in ways that cannot be overstated.”
These partners champion the Mission by volunteering their time, organizing events and making generous financial contributions that make our work possible. In fact, more than 80 percent of the Mission’s funding comes from the faithful philanthropy of these organizations — and from donors like you.
“We are thankful for their help, and we hope more organizations and individuals join us to create pathways out of homelessness, hunger and addiction for our neighbors in need,” said President & CEO Jack Briggs. “Together, we can help transform lives — providing hope and opportunity to those who need it most.”
Organizations like Wells Fargo, the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, the City of Colorado Springs and USAA are devoted to addressing issues surrounding affordable and transitional housing; other organizations like the Kenneth King Foundation, the Daniels Fund, the El Paso County Community Investment Program and Independent Financial support the development of job skills and getting people back to work; and organizations like Ent Credit Union, El Paso County and the Colorado Springs Health Foundation help provide health and addiction recovery services to vulnerable men and women.
The compassionate support of these organizations and so many others cannot be understated. Together, they join with thousands of supporters to fight poverty, hunger, homelessness and addiction in our community. World change starts locally by supporting charitable organizations like Springs Rescue Mission.
