Last night was our community Thank You sponsored by our Legacy Fund. It was a fun night full of storytelling, music, & lots of chocolate. We couldn’t do what we do with out the support from our community!
Thank you to the generous community member who donated a large amount of green beans to the shelter yesterday, and for the impromptu Green Party that followed! Our shelter serves three free meals a day and it is only made possible through donations like these. If you are interested in donating, food can be delivered to 913 State Ave or give a call to 719-589-5909 for more donation and volunteer opportunities.
Join us in welcoming our February AmeriCorps members! These members are serving a year at La Puente at various programs. We are excited to have them join the La Puente family. #americorps #servecolorado #gettingthingsdone #americorpsvista
It is time to bid farewell to some of our La Puente AmeriCorps & AmeriCorps VISTA members! They served a year with La Puente and helped to ensure that we can continue to provide a safety net to those in need in our community. We wish them the best and know there are great things in their future! #americorps #servecolorado

La Puente's Shelter needs your help! Our shelter serves three, free community meals a day. We believe no member of our community should go hungry. These meals are made possible by donations from our generous friends. Currently we need fresh fruits and vegetables. If you would like to help, please deliver to 913 State Ave. For more information about donation and volunteer opportunities, call 719-589-5909.
Join us tomorrow night to stand in solidarity with those struggling with homelessness and to honor those we've lost. "Only when we unite as a community can we heal."
Today marks 25 years of MLK day of service! This year La Puente’s AmeriCorps members & La Puente's Rural Alliance For Dignity Colorado host site members volunteered at Not Forgotten Outreach, Inc. so that they can continue their mission of recreational therapeutic farming activities for active duty, reservist, NG, veterans, their families, & Gold Star families. #dayofservice #mlkdayofservice #servecolorado #DayON #DayON25
La Puente Home, Inc. is proud to be part of Colorado's Continuum of Care. La Puente's Adelante Family Resource Center offers supportive housing while our Outreach Homeless Prevention Program offers rapid rehousing. These services when coupled with the rest of La Puente's wrap-around services offer many pathways out of homelessness for those living in the San Luis Valley.
Thank you Valley-Wide Health Systems, Inc. & Adams State University Theatre Program for another successful Share the Magic event. With their support and our community we raised $62,196. These funds will help us to continue to meet immediate needs in our community.

2019 The Year in Review: We Asked and You Answered - We asked you to see all people with a lens of Dignity, and you chose not to look past or ignore those who were struggling. In December, you gave blankets and sleeping bags to those still sleeping outside, presents and food so everyone could celebrate Christmas.You supported Share the Magic, Colorado Gives and CHFA's Like it Forward Campaign. Thank You all for caring enough to take action!
Year in Review: We Asked and You Answered - November 2019- Volunteers Volunteers Volunteers. In the month of Thankfulness, we were (and still are) so thankful for those who donated food and money for thanks giving meals allowing 700 families to cook their own Thanksgiving meal, and 250 people to have Thanksgiving dinner at the Shelter. Volunteers waited on diners, volunteers cleaned up, volunteers provided music ....... Amazing. Plus, the PALS sold out art show, and our own Lance Cheslock receiving a Trailblazer award.
