In May, the Samaritan House in Denver expanded its capacity for people experiencing homelessness. It also saw new paint, new bunk beds with reading lights, lockers, mattresses and furniture.

Catholic Charities is asking for volunteers to serve meals, which may amount to an additional 1,000 volunteer hours per month. All those interested are invited to sign up at ccdenver.org/volunteer or call 720-799-9297.
