About the Non-Profits:
The Samaritan House opened in November 1986 and was the first building in America designed specifically as a homeless shelter. Samaritan House became a model for the nation for what a home for the homeless can be.
The distinction between home and shelter was significant when conceptualizing the facility. A shelter provides the basics, maybe some food and short-term protection from life on the street. However, a home is a place of nurturing, providing stability and skills, which enables residents to consider a future.
Located in the heart of downtown Denver, Samaritan House supplies close to 25% of the shelter housing available to families in the Denver area.
Two local, active Stapleton moms began to explore an opportunity to raise awareness in their fight against childhood obesity, and more specifically Prader-Willi Syndrome. Both moms, parents to Jude (age 5) and Eliza (age 3) with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), wanted to give their children the opportunity to participate in a local, fitness-focused tradition on Thanksgiving Day with other children and families in their community.
PWS is the leading genetic cause of life-threatening childhood obesity, and for those affected, Thanksgiving can be a scary time of year (read more about PWS in the PWS section of the website). While there is no cure for PWS, the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research is working diligently to fund research with the goal of understanding and treating specific aspects of the syndrome to eventually eliminate the challenges of this devastating disease.
