Make a Donation

Imagine getting out of the hospital after surgery or serious illness and being discharged to recuperate on the streets or in a car. Chances are you will be back at the emergency room before long. Something had to be done.  Ascending to Health Respite Care is the only organization that offers these chronically homeless that safe place, a bed, and supportive services, like help getting their medicine. We need your help, there is still so much to do.  Ask your employer if they provide matching donations.  Double the impact you can make!

75% of all homeless persons will return to the hospital within two weeks of discharge because of complications that are direct result of being discharged to the street.  Help Ascending to Health change this statistic in Colorado Springs.

What We Need

Our clients have been homeless and come to us straight from the hospital, so they have very little.   The clients always need new coats, hats, gloves, sweaters or sweats, socks and underwear.  Seventy five percent of our clients are men and of course, our men and women come in M, L, XL, XXL. The Recuperative Care site also would love some new fleece blankets (twin size), general medical supplies (canes, blood sugar test kits, bandaides, dressing wraps), and food certificates from King Soopers or Walmart, gas cards, etc….
