The Samaritan House

I was going to write my own review of this facility, but like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Nobody would believe me if I wrote that a Denver, Colorado Catholic Charities homeless shelter was bad, so ask those people listed above what they think if you have any questions.

Notes about this shelter:

  • Veterans are separated from the general population.
  • Women are separated from men.
  • Families are separated from everyone else.
  • Every resident is assigned chores.
  • The front door is guarded by residents.
  • Anyone jobless must leave the facility by 9 a.m.
  • The had rat problems. (as of 2015)
  • Meals are served at designated times and are free.
  • There is a job center to assist with employment assistance.
  • Your stay here is NOT free. If you have disability, social security, or an income of any kind you must pay a portion into the facility and show proof.
  • You can earn clothing vouchers by doing additional chores.

Specific incidents of note:

  1. During a stay there I informed the staff that homeless out on the streets were coming onto the property and stealing parts off of the resident bicycles. The staff did not feel this was an issue.
  2. Due to lack of space I have seen people turned away at the door with no assistance on where to go, and this was in the blistering freezing cold of Denver winter. Cold that will easily leave you dead without shelter.
  3. There are specific days you can not watch English television, such was the case when people unable to celebrate the 4th of July were unable to leave the facility, they were not allowed to watch the celebrations on television because the programming was in English.
  4. The eviction of the homeless on March 8, 2016, in Denver, took place on the Samaritan House block.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."

--The New Colossus

    You really get a sense of what kind of people run that place when you see the staff cherrypicking things for themselves as the donations come through the donation door.
