Leadership

Our Mission Statement: St. Clare’s Ministries offers short-term respite from the harsh realities of homelessness, poverty, and the separation we feel from God and each other. With God’s help, St. Clare’s is an open, welcoming, and diverse community that provides physical and spiritual nourishment, clothing, and other support to our guests and volunteers in need.

Our Vision: To offer short-term respite from the harsh realities of homelessness and poverty through the provision of meals, clothing and other support to our community neighbors in need.

Our Purpose: We are a Jubilee Ministry of The Episcopal Church in Colorado. The purpose of Jubilee Ministry Centers of The Episcopal Church is to engage in work with poor and oppressed people, wherever they are found, to meet basic human needs and to build a just society. It is faith in action–loving God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
