I thank you in advance for your generosity, every year I'm more amazed at how the Lord brings these trips together and even more amazed how every life has changed. Not one of the people we have taken to Rome have returned to the streets. Clarissa, Derrick, Shyla, Melanie and now Nina...five amazing people whom you've probably walked by many times if you live in Denver...they are all a functioning part of society, with apartments, jobs, and custody of their children.
Fifth Annual Homeless Rome Trip 2018
We've already gotten $1000 towards our $1500 match challenge!! That means we only need $500 more to complete the challenge!
We need to raise $5,000 in a very short time, the trip is May 4-14, 2018, therefore I'm asking for your help. As usual, I leave all in the Lord's hands, it was His idea through a dream six years ago and He will provide the funds, after all He owns all the cattle on a thousand hills. I'm just doing my part by humbling myself asking for your help.
This year the Denver Homeless Ministry is "taking the Homeless to Rome", one step further, we are partnering with CYAS (Catholic Young Adult Sports) to allow our homeless young lady to be infused into a community. A community that will accept, love and embrace her.
Hello they call me nina. I started off as an awkward kid. Family oriented, born in an apartment, raised by my pop and grandmother in Colorado. They were pretty alright. I guess I started couch surfing as a teenager, started experimenting with drugs, in and out of jail. I eventually became homeless on the streets of denver; all the while, being oppressed by man. Out of this though, I experienced a freedom like none other. Being free from materialism, you learn how important friendship and love is. I also found passions in art and skating and found supportive and encouraging communities, people who cared and didnt see class but equality and that is a blessing.
These days I am trying to get off the streets, get a job and do better. I'd really love to travel; see the world, so this opportunity is amazing and I am incredibly grateful. I am now 23 years old. One day I'd also like to go to art school and have a family my very own.
