What We Do...
The Action Center provides Jefferson County residents basic human services and the resources needed to develop pathways to self-sufficiency, breaking the cycle of poverty.
In the details...
A homeless woman named Carol came into The Action Center last year and met with a Case Manager, Liz. Carol disclosed with Liz that she was currently homeless, had a 12-year-old son, was living on just $175 a month and was desperate to turn her life around. Carol was immediately interested in joining the Self-Sufficiency Pathways Program, and was open to talking about her rough past and her hopes for a better future. Liz provided Carol with 4 months’ worth of bus passes and connected her with Red Rocks Community College to meet her education goals. Carol’s most important goal was to find housing for her and her son. Liz wrote a letter of recommendation for Carol, and she was approved for housing in Denver! The Action Center provided Carol with ARC vouchers so she could furnish her new home. Carol is thrilled about the process she’s made and hopes that she will find a career that she loves!
