DenverWorks has a long history of thorough job preparation and placement to the unemployed and underemployed. Denver Rescue Mission’s history includes feeding, sheltering the homeless, and providing long-term programs for men, women and families.
We are excited about this opportunity with DenverWorks. Better preparing people who are unemployed so that they can obtain a job and keep it is so important for the people we serve, said Brad Meuli, President/CEO of Denver Rescue Mission. We believe this strategic partnership will be one that really benefits our community.
Both non-profit organizations serve homeless and low-income men and women in similar capacities including providing clothing, job training and more. The two established entities will share experience and knowledge to enhance the scope of service. This opportunity will identify possible synergies and collaborations for a long-term partnership.
DenverWorks is honored to partner with Denver Rescue Mission. By combining resources and expertise, we are creating a win-win partnership that we believe will have a lasting impact on Metro Denver, said Jenifer Reynolds, DenverWorks’ executive director.
The Mission will refer clients and program participants to DenverWorks for long-term career development services and DenverWorks will refer clients to the Mission for emergency services and rehabilitation programs.
DenverWorks has served over 30,000 job seekers in its 19-year history. In addition to its focus on employment readiness and career guidance, DenverWorks serves its participants through interview and work clothing, a computer lab, an emergency food bank, and peer mentoring. DenverWorks' offices will relocate to Denver Rescue Mission's Ministry Outreach Center at 5725 E. 39th Ave., Denver, CO 80207 on December 10. Phone numbers will remain the same.
Since 1892, Denver Rescue Mission has been meeting the needs of the poor and homeless through emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional programs, permanent housing assistance, and community outreach. For more information, visit www.DenverRescueMission.org.
