Learn how Growing Home is supporting Adams County families Monday April 22 at 11:30 a.m. at Community Reach Center, 11285 Highline Drive in Northglenn. Pell Fender, chief development officer at Growing Home, will speak to the Adams County League of Women Voters. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Growing Home was established 20 years ago as the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Adams County. Its founder, Kathleen Drozda, realized that Adams County was not aware of the extent of suburban homelessness and had few methods of accommodating that need.
In addition to the Canopy (temporary housing) program, which provides 14 beds, Growing Home has added a food pantry, rental and energy assistance, and a two-generation approach to breaking the cycle of poverty through a home-visitation program and classes designed to mitigate adverse childhood experiences. Most recently, Growing Home has added a community organizer to identify, recruit, and support community members who are advocating for justice in the areas of housing, food, and education.
Tuesday, May 28 @ 6 p.m.- Legislative Wrap-up. Two state legislators representing Adams County will discuss major legislation approved in 2019 and answer questions. Note the different day and time because of the Memorial Day holiday.
