"As the Homelessness Response Coordinator, I have often heard from people who live in Colorado Springs and downtown business owners about negative experiences in the downtown area. A year and a half ago, I met with City leadership and community leaders about the issues occurring downtown.
Lori went three years without a job. In that time, she has lived in the women’s shelter at Springs Rescue Mission and struggled with her sense of self worth. But through the City of Colorado Springs‘ new WorkCOS program, she’s now working, smiling and dreaming big.
Homelessness is a complex issue. What organizations and agencies does the city work with on this issue and what progress is being made? How can you donate and where does the money go? These are answers everyone needs to know.
