Join the movement ... Join the family

We just graduated 23 seniors in May. Most of them cited that if not for DSS, they would have never earned a diploma. Many of them shared how they consider this school to be family. And all of them said DSS saved them from the destructive path they were on.

We know our school impacts lives!

But when someone else sees the DSS difference first-hand, it reaffirms our commitment to be a beacon of hope in Denver.

Ruben Rodriguez is a local pastor and volunteers at East Campus. Here’s his perspective:

***

Family is the best way to describe what’s happening at the Denver Street School. Teens who have been deeply rejected or invalidated don’t simply need a classroom where they conform to the learning. They need a space where the learning conforms to the specific tension of their lives.

Teens who have seen hurt, pain, and loss don’t simply need classes. They need dedicated teaching to understand the wisdom in which math, science or literature might provide healing, opportunity, and potential.

Teens who have known and been on the receiving end of violence and hate don’t simply need teachers. They need the unflagging love and support of people who might wholeheartedly seek after their well-being — people who might sacrifice everything to make them feel valuable and worthwhile again. There are few places more special and sacred as the halls and offices and classrooms of the Denver Street School — a school that is more a home than an institution.

You're invited to join the DSS family. When you donate, you’re standing with us. You’re not just supporting a school, but also partnering with a program that is changing lives… one student at a time. And between now and September 30th , your donation will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $42,000), thanks to a few difference- makers.

Now’s the perfect opportunity to double your impact, helping teens who need more than a classroom to find hope and help. Join the DSS family and be a part of this amazing movement. We’re in this together!

Sincerely,
Chris Fuller
Superintendent/Acting Executive Director
