You can make a difference to a homeless family!

Give Money | Give Time | Give Stuff

Homeless families face more than just losing a place to live. Their crisis is often aggravated by the personal pain of domestic violence, job loss, or a critical illness in the family.

Often called the “hidden homeless”, families do not often show up at the places where the homeless are counted, such as emergency shelters or tent camps. Instead they are often living out of their cars, preparing to flee an abusive situation, or “couch surfing” day to day with friends and relatives.

Many of these families come to us with nothing and your support means these families can rebuild their lives. Please select above how you would like to help. Thank you!

Help Us Show 60 Homeless Moms That Every Mother Matters

Courageous, amazing women and their children will be the focus of a special Mother’s Day event as they journey toward successful, independent lives.

Join Us May 13, at Partners in Housing located on the grounds of the Myron Stratton Home.

455 Gold Pass Heights
Colorado Springs, CO 80906


Partners in Housing is hosting its annual Every Mother Matters celebration – a family day of fun and education on Saturday, May 13, for single mothers and their children participating in our one-year self-sufficiency program. Women with children make up a large part of the “invisible” homeless crisis in our community – women who have been driven into desperate circumstances due to domestic violence, job loss, or illness.

Each year, we seek to recognize and appreciate those who have joined our program as they strive to improve their education, and life skills, gain meaningful work, and achieve lasting self-sufficiency.

During our special event, mothers will enjoy self-care workshops, yoga, massages and haircuts – services coordinated for us by Leadership Pikes Peak. Children attending will create Mothers-Day cards (with the help of ANB Bank volunteers) and join a safety class led by members of the Colorado Springs Fire Department. Additionally, kids will be provided with flowers (donated by The Woman’s Club of Colorado Springs) to give mom on her special day. Each mother will also receive a personal hygiene basket, arranged with help from Pikes Peak United Way.

How can you help us? Your donation of brand new crock pots (any size) can help us celebrate these brave women who are working so hard to return to stability and independence. For more details and to coordinate your gift drop off, please contact our development manager, Dianne Reitan, at As always, monetary contributions are gratefully accepted via the Donate Today button on our website homepage at:

 Robert Swindler, PIH Volunteer Furniture Mover and Donor

“Once we learned about Partners in Housing’s mission and methods, we decided to make them one of the non-profits where we focus our support with both our time and donations. Making our monetary donations through the Enterprise Zone is extremely easy and provides us the benefits of not only the normal charitable donation deduction against our income on our federal taxes, it also provides us a very nice tax credit against our Colorado tax bill. It’s a win-win to do it that way for sure!” Robert Swindler

Thank you for being there through the times others were not. It’s the hard times when we really need special people like you who can understand life’s trials, see the vision of hope, and continually try to share it with some who may have lost hope long ago. Thank you!
