On November 16th Step residents took to the streets to give back to the community through our annual Step Giving day of service. This year students from Smokey Hill High School joined our men, with gloves and trash bags in hand, as they cleaned up the Ballpark Neighborhood.
Walking many blocks together, they found drug paraphernalia and picked up countless empty liquor bottles. Our residents used the opportunity to share their experiences and the students courageously opened up too - learning from each other and leaving a lasting impression.
After the work was done, lunch was generously provided by Denver Pizza Company. Good food and even better company made this a day to remember.
Step Denver would not be where we are today without the generosity of time and resources from our neighbors. Step giving is one of many opportunities for our staff and residents to pay it forward and put service above self.
