Colorado Mormons and Catholics Work Together to Help Homeless

LDS News

Windsor, CO (LDS NEWS) Catholic Charities and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the Greely and Windor areas of Colorado have joined arms to help the homeless find places to live.

For the past several years Latter-day Saints have been volunteering at the Catholic Charities' Guadalupe Shelter, a facility for the homeless.  When the nearby Guadalupe Apartments, also operated by Catholic Charities was in need of some improvements and TLC both groups took action together. The need for beds, bedding and furniture was essential but when the needs of the shelter’s actual residents became know, the Humanitarian Services arm of the Church jumped in to help.

Area LDS Church members set out volunteering time and asking for donations through the project “A Place to Lay His Head.”  Enough bedding, dressers, night stands were gathered for 47 apartments.  Approximately 200 Latter-day Saint youth worked nearly 2,000 hours assembling the furniture and setting them up in the apartments.
