ABOUT THIS CHARITY
OUR MISSION: Dry Bones is a long-standing community of support among Denver’s unhoused teens and young adults. We have the simple but radical belief that companionship itself can be profoundly transformative. So alongside helping to meet emotional, spiritual, and physical needs, our true work is building ongoing relationships that remind the invisible among us of their immeasurable worth. Companioning is our vital work.
We accomplish this mission through three main areas of focus. Each part applies to everyone involved in the Dry Bones community.
We are freely extended beyond our familiar boundaries in order to form relationships that reveal the God-given unsurpassable worth of all involved. We hope to create intersections where people from different walks of life cross paths who would not normally meet; here, everyone belongs.
Within the context of relationships, hope, love, opportunity, and beauty are revealed. Everyone’s faith grows. We all get “saved” in exciting and unexpected ways.
