Sox Place, Inc.

A nonprofit organization

Sox Place is a homeless youth drop-in center that strives to bring the Father's heart to the fatherless through intentional, loving relationships.


"I don't think that I could be the person I am now or even the mother that I am if it had not been for [Sox Place] showing me what love is and that I do deserved to be loved. To me, Sox Place is family, love, home, safety, security, and sobriety."


Sox Place exists to bring the Father's heart to the fatherless, through physical, spiritual, emotional and social provision to urban youth subcultures.

Background Statement

Doyle Robinson started connecting with the street youth who were hanging out on the 16th Street Mall in Downtown Denver in 1998. Discovering their need for clean, dry socks, Doyle used this very basic need to reach the street youth gathered on the 16th Street Mall, eventually earning him the street name, "Sox." Sox Place was opened by Doyle and his son, Jordan, in May, 2002. His oldest son Josh and his wife Tina have also worked alongside Doyle, along with his wife Karen. It was established out of a desire to provide a safe place for street youth to go during the day where they could truly be accepted and loved. There was no other organization or ministry filling this need during the day.
