Our Basic Emergency Services staff assists vulnerable individuals and families out of crisis to achieve self-sufficiency, greater security, and stability in their lives. BES serves diverse client populations including those who are homeless, victims of domestic violence, low & moderate-income families, veterans, people re-entering society from incarceration, LGBTQ+ community, senior citizens, mixed-status households, and anyone who is having trouble making ends meet. BES helps families not have to choose between paying rent or having food in their cupboard or keeping their children safe by having the appropriate child safety seat. The BES program is a dynamic and malleable program that adjusts to the needs of the community. For example, BES has provided fruit and vegetable seeds and transplants to over 300 families to assist families in growing sustainable and healthy food. BES is a program that struggles to find funding, so it completely relies on financial donations, volunteers, and support from partnering agencies. Partner agencies that assist year-round include: We Don’t Waste, Food Bank of the Rockies, A Precious Child, St. Anthony’s Food Bank, Heinrich Hispanidad, and many more. To access any of BES services, please call us at 303-458-5851.
