Over the years, Jessie’s Homes for Families has become known as a dedicated supporter of the homeless community in the Denver area. Led by philanthropist and entrepreneur Jessie Schaden – who happens to be my daughter – the organization is currently working with the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless to build affordable housing in Denver.
The new housing units will be located at Renaissance at North Colorado Station, and residents will have easy access via train or shuttle to the Stout Street Health Center, which provides medical and dental care, substance abuse treatment, and mental health services. To accomplish its mission of giving children and families a stable environment in which to live and thrive, Jessie’s Homes for Families encourages members of the community to make donations of any size to the project. Once the organization reaches its goal of $150,000, it will have the equity necessary to begin construction on nearly 130 transitional housing units for families experiencing homelessness.
