Mission Statement

Denver Urban Matters promotes community engagement, education, and advocacy by helping people meet basic needs and increase self-sufficiency, while working to overcome the root causes of poverty. Inspiring hope, transforming lives, working to end poverty

Description

Founded in 1981, DenUM is a human service agency providing food, utility assistance, identification help, infant items and more to low-income people in our community.

Every day at Denver Urban Ministries, families receive help with their basic needs of food, rent, utility assistance, or infant items which provide STABILITY.

Employment Services gives job seekers access to case management, phones, voicemail, hygiene items, clothing referrals and computer access to help them move from dependency to SELF-SUFFICIENCY.

A focus on education and advocacy seeks community transformation and SUSTAINABILITY. In Urban Education, youth and adults explore service and society in an urban setting and return to their communities as advocates for compassion, fairness and justice.

Would you recommend Denver Urban Matters?

by Laura S. from Denver, CO (2012-02-02 14:35:09.0)
One part of volunteering at DenUM that I really enjoy is emphasis placed on making a personal connection with each client. Even when things are really busy, all the staff and volunteers make time to listen to the client sitting in front of them. They make time to help, find resources and just be a listening ear. Our clients are not just another name on a list; they are people that need our help. The value of the individual carries over into the way staff and volunteers treat each other and the care that they provide to everyone who walks through the doors.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
