Who We Are

The Catholic Charities, Father Ed Judy House serves single women with children who are experiencing homelessness.

Our small shelter serves nine families at a time, providing basic needs, groups and classes, and case management designed to help families find stable housing. Families can stay as long as they need.

We also offer voluntary, post-shelter services to families to help them remain stable.  This on-going support prevents chronic family homelessness by building relationships not case files.

 For the families who have found stable housing and have moved into the community, we offer voluntary post-shelter services (our Alumni Program) designed to help them remain stable.  Some of these services include:

We are grateful to the community and all our volunteers.  In 2012-2013, 461 volunteers donated 2,377 hours of their time to our families. It is only because of their support that we are able to provide a ministry that offers the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. 

We continue to need your help - as a volunteer, as a donor, as a community supporter.  Please browse our current volunteer opportunities and contact Theresa Miller (tmiller@ccdenver.org) if you have any questions!
