Quilts for Sacred Heart House

On September 20th a delivery of twenty quilts was made to the Sacred Heart House in the Curtice Park neighborhood of Denver.  The shelter provides services for homeless single women and homeless women with children in the Denver area.  The staff of the Sacred Heart House help with stabilization, follow up, transitional housing, and self sufficiency programs for their clients.  Counselors for the women are Senior students from Denver University and Metropolitan State University who are majoring in human services work.  While the clients stay at the shelter they are provided food and clothing, transportation, education and job training, health care, and child care.  The structure for the shelter is a 140 year old convent that has six family rooms and three single rooms and is next door to the Sacred Heart School.  Receiving the quilts from Bonnie, Christie, and Jacque were Garrett, the Assistant Director, and Delores, who manages the shelter and keeps it spotless and operating efficiently.
