Sacred Heart House of Denver offers a contiuum of services to homeless mothers with children and single women to help them achieve and maintain self-sufficiency.
Catherine Bevanda founded Sacred Heart House in 1980, after she learned that the convent next to Sacred Heart School in lower downtown Denver had closed and realized that the building would work well for a homeless shelter. In April 1991, Sacred Heart House of Denver was incorporated in Colorado as a non-sectarian, non-profit organization for charitable and educational purposes.
We received this letter from a former resident that we wanted to share with you.
My Dear Friends at Sacred Heart,
Thank you for all the help you have given me with shelter, housing, and really the support with my medical issues. I had been just diagnosed with cancer and your support meant the world to me. I especially appreciate the information and advice you have provided. I appreciate the contacts you have shared with me. For me, questioning the doctors concerning my diagnosis was invaluable. I was really weak but your support has made me strong enough to go for a second opinion and switch hospitals.
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, Sacred Heart House of Denver was able to help Janine move into her own apartment.
