The mission of the The Delores Project (TDP) is to provide safe, comfortable overnight shelter and services to unaccompanied adult women who are homeless and have limited resources. The model of service is one of hospitality, respect, and regard for the dignity of each guest.
Every night The Delores Project ensures that at least 50 women are safely off the streets — women who might otherwise face the risk of physical danger and illness that comes with living on the streets. By providing transitional support services in addition to emergency shelter, The Delores Project assists women in developing the skills and resources necessary to stay off the streets and move towards stability.
MPB has been a longtime supporter of the The Delores Project (TDP) . Thank you to the many volunteers who have made meals for the ladies over the years. It is estimated in 2017-18 your donation of 108 meals was valued at over $31,000.
Because of the construction on campus and also the transition occurring at TDP to their new location, our meal support will be changing come October.
TDP has their own system of signing up for complete meals for 60 through Sign Up Genius. You can go to the site a choose a date to bring a meal that works for you. MPB will no longer be the drop off point for meals. The URL for sign up is https://tinyurl.com/DeloresMeals18-19
Grab friends for an afternoon of cooking or organize and host a drop off base for a meal. If you need ideas or help on how to organize a meal team, contact Mary Ann Tarpey firstname.lastname@example.org or Ann Zimmer azimmer@mpbdenver 303.756.3083 Attached is a tip sheet from TDP that can help you get started!
“We are grateful to be able to feed the hungry, rather than being one of the hungry.”
