Brothers Redevelopment, Inc. 

BRI has provided safe, affordable, accessible housing and housing services for tens of thousands of Colorado's low-income, elderly and disabled residents.  Brothers truly understands and seeks to exceed return on investment for organizations who support them.  A home is often the most important way to bring and keep a family together.  The dignity of living in your house as long as you want is something Mike - and all of us - greatly value and support. 

For forty seasons, BRI has held Paint-A-Thons, a volunteer program (including Denver Cherry Creek Rotary Club volunteers pictured above) providing free house painting for homeowners.  

Care and Share 

Care and Share's mission is to provide food, partnering opportunities, and education to combat hunger and food insecurity with a vision to end hunger in Southern Colorado communities.  Douglas has been donating food to them for years (usually around the holidays) and this past year further supports their mission to feed those who are not able to feed themselves.

Dream Centers of Colorado Springs 

Dream Centers of Colorado Springs provides holistic care and balances compassion and justice for the homeless in the community so that their broken lives may be restored to wholeness.  The access to healthcare provided for women who would otherwise be unable to get it and the ability for homeless, single mothers to get themselves and their children off the street is why Douglas strongly supports Dream Centers.

Open Door Ministries 

Open Door Ministries provides practical help and hope to people in urban Denver who are homeless or low income.  Elisabeth's dad worked with this organization, and had compassion and support for their mission. 

Springs Rescue Mission 

Springs Rescue Mission seeks to meet the immediate needs of homeless neighbors with the ultimate goal of providing support and tools necessary to create lasting change.  Douglas is passionate for how the mission helps the homeless with a place to stay, having a meal, and providing access to programs for required assistance.
