Human Services; Free Healthcare; Emergency assistance
Seek measurable and visible improvements in the health and well-being of individuals and families.

Provide support for clients to enable them to make positive choices toward self-sufficiency and economic stability

We want to collaborate with the community to reach and assist as many people as possible. Through this effort we will secure a minimum level of existence for clients by identifying needs and distributing resources in order to meet the human requirements for food, clothing, shelter, and healthcare. This will provide opportunities for clients to make positive, proactive choices toward self-sufficiency

Rose Gates, a woman with a passion for helping disenfranchised people, established the agency in 1951, to provide food and clothing for homeless and disadvantaged people in Denver, Colorado. Over the years, our services have expanded to include emergency shelter, rental and utility assistance, free well child checks and health care, senior services and disaster response.

ACS Community LIFT, formerly Adventist Community Services, is a subsidiary of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists which holds the agency’s original non-profit status.

In the structure of the Church, we are considered the domestic humanitarian arm.
Our purpose is to provide humanitarian aid. As such, our services focus on early intervention and prevention.

The services are available to all Denver Metro area residents regardless of their race, religion, sex or any other factor.

We are supported by individuals, corporations, foundations, constituent churches, and local events.
