SPCS Helps Open a Women’s Shelter

Noah Sebastian, VP of Operations for SPCS Inc., was instrumental in helping Catholic Charities open a temporary homeless shelter recently to serve women only. Larry Smith, President and CEO of Denver’s Catholic Charities, has been working hard to help provide more services for women. Women represent 36 percent of the homeless in Denver, and single and divorced women with children are the largest growing demographic of poverty in our country.

The homeless of Denver expressed that a safe place was needed this winter for women to spend the night. Holy Rosary shelter is provided in cooperation with The City of Denver, Catholic Charities and Holy Rosary Parish. It has the capacity to hold up to 100 women. It is currently serving between 70- 80 women per night. The City of Denver is busing women back and forth between the shelter and The Samaritan House for meals.

Noah, who has been with SPCS for more than six years, helped them pull together the general construction process and bring in some of the contractors involved. Other SPCS employees assisted with some of the interior work. Noah has a can do attitude when it comes to completing any project, and a big heart when it comes to serving those less fortunate.

We are proud of Noah and his work, and proud to be help support Catholic Charities and their efforts to serve the poor.
