WorkShop Self Sufficiency Fund

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

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!
