Rebuild the Denver Catholic Worker!

$10,530 of $173,055 goal

Raised by 46 people in 2 months

We are approaching the end of our $100,000 MATCHING PLEDGE. To date, we have raised $63,000 towards this goal. We need another $37,000 to unlock the final matching funds. Do you know someone that you can introduce to this project? If you need any particular information to do that, please let us know by sending a message to DenverCatholicWorker@gmail.com!

On July 2, 2018,  we celebrated our 40th anniversary by purchasing a NEW CATHOLIC WORKER HOUSE! We were able to do this thanks to your generosity and the help of a $200,000 loan. We continue to raise money towards our overall goal of $300,000 in order to pay back this loan, make the necessary renovations, and operate the Hospitality House.

***

Our new House of Hospitality is a four bedroom house within the half block of Emmaus Housing -- a small non-profit affordable housing organization that was founded by a group of Cathloic Worker related folks in Five Points in 1999 and has been operated by those folks for 19 years.

We plan to open the house sometime in early fall 2018!

Hi friends!

On July 2, 2018,  we celebrated our 40th anniversary by purchasing a NEW CATHOLIC WORKER HOUSE! (WAHOO!!!) We were able to do this thanks to your generosity and the help of a $200,000 loan. We continue to raise money towards our overall goal of $300,000 in order to pay back this loan, make the necessary renovations, and operate the Hospitality House.

We are now approaching the end of our $100,000 MATCHING PLEDGE. To date, we have raised $63,000 towards this goal. We need another $37,000 to unlock the final matching funds.

We've got some MAJOR UPDATES to report:

1) We have a contract in place to purchase the home! We went under contract on the house yesterday, and plan to close on July 2, 2018.

2) We have received a $100,000 matching pledge from an anonymous donor. WOW! WOW! WOW! Every penny that is donated towards the house from now on, all the way up to $100,000 will be doubled.

Please help us spread the good news among your friends and family. We are simply amazed by the generous spirit of God that is at work in this process.

A way is appearing in the wilderness.
God is singing a new song among us.
It's a beautiful thing.
