New Genesis (for men and women)

Address
1680 Sherman St.
Denver, CO - 80203

Provides a year round program for working men and women. $49/week Must provide verification of 32hrs/week of work. Sober-only program. 4pm-6pm daily intake. After care program.

New Genesis requires clients to pay rent, participate in the upkeep of the shelter, and work. This proves to be very effective in ultimately breaking the cycle of homelessness.

Requiring accountability (by having clients pay rent) is economically efficient client fees cover 80% of costs, and provide significant leverage to our donor base.

Tight controls exist for the first 30 days, then freedom (and anxiety) gradually increase until clients are able to cope with day-to-day life on their own. 50% of clients make it through the first 30 days. Of those that do, 70% ultimately succeed.

Successful graduates re-enter the community with newfound social skills, increased employment opportunities, and an appetite for independent living.

The program entails three distinct phases:
Orientation Phase: New Genesis provides a thorough evaluation of the strengths a client brings into the experience and an individual service plan is developed.
Residential Phase: Clients focus on continued sobriety, increased employment opportunities, restoring credit, and saving money.

Mentoring Phase: Graduates are challenged to give back to other clients of the program by facilitating group counseling and developing a speaker's bureau that communicates the work of New Genesis throughout the community.


    MENS FACILITY
    Orientation Phase: New Genesis provides a thorough evaluation of the strengths a resident brings into the experience and an individual service plan is developed. The residents also learn program requirements and house rules during this phase. Sobriety, employment and financial savings are the three objectives during their stay.
    Vocational Phase: The residents focus on continued sobriety and are challenged to increased employment/income opportunities. They must also begin restoring credit and saving money.
    Residential Phase: During this phase, the residents have already obtained and maintained employment and/or increased their income. This phase is dedicated to securing a housing plan. The resident can plan to graduate into our transitional housing plan or work with case managers to move into their own housing options.

    MEN, WOMEN AND FAMILY TRANSITIONAL HOUSING
    Our transitional housing program provides an apartment or house for single men, single women and families. They are required to be drug and alcohol free. The residents must be working, paying rent and saving for their permanent housing plan. The residents can stay in this program for up to two years, depending on the circumstances. They must also give back to the community by volunteering at the shelter. ​

    MENTORING PHASE
    The program also offers a mentoring phase and an on the job training program where graduates are challenged to give back to other residents by working alongside a staff member with the goal of becoming a program guide. All our staff, including the CEO are graduates of the program and have went through this phase.

    CAREER RESOURCE CENTER  We are proud to announce our new Career Resource Center will be available after April 1, 2019 to all our residents.  The center will offer resume writing, online applications, mock interviews, resources for interviews and new hires.  We also welcome businesses to host job fairs and on the spot hiring in our facility.   ​
