Giving Activity


RecoveryWorks provides access to opportunities for resources, community and recovery to our unhoused neighbors.

Background Statement

RecoveryWorks opened our doors in the summer of 2021 in the midst of the COVID pandemic out of a significant community need to support the unhoused in the West Metro area. We are a low barrier drop-in center; many of our guests are older adults, veterans, or individuals actively dealing with recovery. Committed to finding a long-term solution to homelessness in the Denver Metro area, RecoveryWorks is a vital partner in the rehousing ecosystem. In 2023, RecoveryWorks has been the recipient of multiple American Rescue Plan Act (APRA) awards and is using the revenue to expand our services and acquire additional facilities to build out permanent supportive housing in Jefferson County.
