Ongoing Opportunities

Just Care Backpacks

Having a backpack provides significant benefits for those experiencing homelessness. In addition to keeping their belongings safe, it is a means of carrying a majority of what they own with them. Just Care Backpacks are filled with nonperishable food items, socks, a reusable water bottle, first aid kits, sunscreen, etc. Don’t forget to grab one the next time you are at St. Andrew and take it with you to give to someone in need in our community.

Sunday Sack Lunches

Each Sunday we partner with AfterHours Denver to provide sack lunches for those experiencing homelessness in our city. Lunches are made each Sunday morning at St. Andrew and then taken downtown and handed out near Civic Center Park.  Help is needed in making and distributing lunches. If you would like to be a part of this life-giving ministry, come and see us near the Outreach Depot at St. Andrew each Sunday morning or email for more details!

Food Banks

St. Andrew partners with 2 local food banks; Interfaith Community Services and Epworth United Methodist Church. Each week help is needed to sort, weigh, and distribute donations.  In addition to this, we provide supplemental food bags once a month to those living at Warren Village. We are currently in the process of opening a Food Market in the new East Community Center, located in Littleton.

For more information and to get involved please email outreach@gostandrew.com

Safe Outdoor Space

The SOS project is a strategic step to provide safe and temporary housing.  It is an opportunity to provide managed care, services, and compassion to those at the margins. One way St. Andrew helps is by providing fresh, ready-to-eat lunch or dinner to the 40 residents at the Safe Outdoor Space. For more information and to sign up, please email outreach@gostandrew.com

Joshua Station Spruce a Room Team

Joshua Station is a transformative 2-year program for families experiencing homelessness.  When a family enters the program at Joshua Station, their home is on-site during this time. St. Andrew has a team led by Char Aubin and Louise Miller. Together with the help of others, they transform the space into a home specific to the family moving in. The team provides cleaning, painting, furnishings, and small repairs, and showers the space with special touches for the new family before their arrival.  They make sure the family feels loved and at home as soon they open the door! If you are interested in joining this team, please email outreach@gostandrew.com

Joshua Station Community Dinner Team

Joshua Station is a transformative 2-year program for families experiencing homelessness.  While families are at Joshua Station each Thursday evening they gather as a community for dinner. On various Thursday dates throughout the year St. Andrew organizes, cooks, and takes dinner to Joshua Station.  These meals are served family style and it’s a wonderful time meeting new families, being in community with others, and sharing a meal together. If you are interested in being a part of these please email outreach@gostandrew.com

Joshua Station

St. Andrew assists Joshua Station with their Spruce A Room and Community Dinner programs. Spruce A Room involves transforming a room into a home for a family participating in the Joshua Station Transformational Housing Program. Turning an ordinary hotel room into a home for a family is so special; making it a cozy and peaceful space for them by thinking through who the family is. Community Dinner involves preparing, serving, and eating a meal with the families living at Joshua Station.

AfterHours

Doing church in a bar. Feeding people.

AfterHours mission is to put more love into the world by providing necessities for people who need them, especially the homeless, and by creating places where all are welcome. Each Monday, we meet for service and make 100 PB&J sack lunches to be handed out the next day to those who are unsheltered. Feeding people is our call to worship.
