At King Street Baptist Church, we value every human being, and we see every person as a child of God. We try the best we can to extend the blessings God gives us to the unfortunate as well. That is why we developed a few programs that help the poor and the homeless from Colorado Springs. We are a small church, we cannot do much, but the little we do means everything to others.
1. Clothes Drive:
The first Wednesday of every month from 3 pm to 9 pm you can come down to us and donate seasonal clothing. We distribute it to the homeless and the shelters in our community. Every piece of clothing you don’t use may be of great help to someone who is not as fortunate. We need your help to help others, so come and make someone’s life a little bit more bearable. Our good friends in Castle Rock helped us with our most recent clothing drive and made it a big success. We partnered with a house cleaning company that actually picked up clothing from their clients while cleaning their homes in order to make it even easier for people to give!

2. Interview Makeover
Jobs are hard to find in this economy, so imagine how hard it can be for a homeless person. Do a good deed. If you are an employer, help us give a chance to someone who has the will to work, but doesn’t have the means. If not, maybe you can help us with a suit or a voucher for a haircut. Anything that would help someone get a job is more than welcome.
3. Child mentoring:
The are many children in Colorado Springs who come from disadvantaged families. But just like Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’ (Matthew 19:14) We like to help them as much as we can, but we feel overwhelmed. The mentoring program helps very much. It doesn’t take much of your time. All you have to do is spend one afternoon per week with one of these children. It may be a couple of hours for you, but it can mean the world to them. Things like these can change the entire path of a human being.
4. The soup kitchen:
Since the King Street Baptist Church started its activity, this is our biggest project. It is not finalized. The construction started half a year ago, but we still are in need of funds and volunteers. It would make a big difference to this community. A hot meal means a lot to many. So help take this project to the finish line. Give what you can, when you can.
