People Working Together For A Better Community

“The strongest thing we offer is we care, we love them,” Ms. Eddie says of their years of work helping people in the community they love. Along the way, “we learned to capitalize on our strengths, recognize where our weaknesses are, and work together.”

The mission of Community Outreach Service Center is to meet the basic needs of the homeless and poor residents of the Denver metropolitan area, including those returning to the community after incarceration, to achieve self-sufficiency through spiritual nurturing, training, community partnerships, and economic development. Our programs and work are focused on helping community with employment, youth and family dynamics, alcohol and drug abuse, education, housing, and spiritual values.
