Too often do we see our participants have an emergency, hit a roadblock in their life or receive an opportunity for subsidized rates but with no means to pay. It breaks our hearts to not be able to help out in these situations. A small donation could go a long way in supporting Mile High WorkShop participants overcome adversity and move towards self sufficiency.
How will a self sufficiency fund help?
$50 can buy a participant supplies or books
for college, items/supplies/transportation for
a new job, presents for their children during
the holidays, food, shoes, toiletries, etc.
$75 will pay for one voucher through the
Providers Resource Clearinghouse. This
voucher will buy four large pieces of
furniture (couches, beds, kitchen tables,
etc.), bedding (sheet sets, comforters, etc.),
and a large box to fill with toiletry items,
toys, pillows, and other household items
such as kitchen supplies or lamps.
$100 can go a long way in an emergency.
This could go towards medication,
co-payments, food, cell phone bills, rental
assistance, gas cards, utility bills, etc.
We participate in the Vehicle Assistance
Program through the Denver Rescue
Mission. This allows participants who are
close to graduating a chance to be
rewarded a vehicle for 15% of the market
value. The average payment ranges from
$200-$400 and being able to match these
funds would provide more opportunities.
We would love to be able to match security
deposits for apartments. Many of our
participants are in transitional housing,
section 8, or living with family/friends and
need to find more permanent housing.
All donations are tax-deductible. Thank You!
