Volunteers to prepare the burritos are needed on Friday evening before the second Saturday of the month from 6:30 to 8:00PM. Volunteers to help share the burritos with the day laborers are needed on the second Saturday of the month at 8:30 to 9:30AM. For more details and to volunteer contact: (303) 755-3799

Women's Homeless Initiative
Women’s Homelessness Initiative: WHI is a consortium of churches working through Capitol Hill United Ministries (CHUM) to give sanctuary and hospitality every night to women who would be on our streets. Mountain View United Church partners with Sixth Avenue UCC to provide welcoming shelter for up to twenty of Denver’s homeless women on certain Saturday evenings throughout the year. Mountain View United Church members greet the women as they arrive at Sixth Avenue UCC and then prepare, serve, and clean up a dinner shared by the volunteer and women guests. After dinner, volunteers often provide after-dinner activities such as coloring and colored pencils, nail polishing, and guest musicians. There are opportunities to serve by setting up cots, providing additional comforts to the women, offering overnight safety and supervision, and preparing breakfast bags. For more information, contact Meredith Ryan, our WHI Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
