Sheltering in vehicles is often a first stop for individuals who lose permanent housing. Without intervention and support, many fall deeper into homelessness and may eventually end up on the streets. Arvada Covenant works with the Colorado Safe Parking Initiative to host individuals in this situation. We offer dinner/shower nights for our guests two times a week. Join our team to support and lift up people who are struggling to survive. For additional information or if you are interested in parking with us, visit colosafeparking.org. To volunteer, email Jaci Lippert, call her at 303-422-2458 or click here to sign-up.
The overall goal is to create positive memories for abused children. We provide numerous volunteers so that each child receives personal attention during the camps. The program is extensive and includes fundraising, volunteer training, plus the week-long camp. Approximately 80-100 volunteers are required every year. For more information on how you may be one of the volunteers, contact Charlie Williams at 303-882-4491 or Connie Williams at 303 204-4669 or visit arvada.royalfamilykids.org.
King’s Team Camp is a one-week residential summer camp designed for graduates (ages 12-15) of the Royal Family Kids’ Camps. Teens are paired with an adult counselor. All counselors and staff are volunteers who have been carefully screened and trained to work with teens and teen-life issues. These teens will build relationships with adults, and other teens and experience God’s creation in a safe and wholesome environment at a camp near Estes Park. This results in a host of positive memories while building confidence and self-esteem.
While at camp, the teens will receive individual attention and also participate in team-building activities, such as: swimming, hiking, challenge course, ropes course, rock climbing, rappelling, horseback riding, crafts, birthday party, Bible study, personal devotions, singing.

We partner with several other churches in our area to provide a safe, warm place for individuals experiencing homelessness this winter. The Severe Weather Shelter Network provides emergency overnight shelter on life threatening winter nights. On the nights we are sheltering, guest are currently being placed in nearby motels for social distancing safety (instead of being housed overnight at our church and other churches). We do provide hot meals, prepared and delivered by our volunteers to their rooms. The delivery volunteers also “check in” with each guest and pass along specific needs with SWSN staff as they are shared.
Severe Weather Shelter Network is a Christian ministry, welcoming all volunteers who share our passion for aiding individuals experiencing homelessness. We do not expect volunteers to share our faith, but rather welcome them into a journey of serving together. If you are interested you can help out by joining a team to provide occasional dinners, delivering hot meals to guests at a nearby motel, or a variety of other volunteers roles. For additional information about SWSN visit swshelternetwork.com.
