Catholic Charities: Gabriel House



The Gabriel House Project is a ministry of Catholic Charities of Denver which serves pregnant mothers and families with young children by providing material, emotion and spiritual support for families with newborns to 5 years old.   There are twelve Gabriel Houses within the Archdiocese of Denver.  They are located in Eagle, Frisco, Boulder, Ft. Collins, Lakewood, Aurora and Denver. Referrals are provided to community services within the respective areas that are being served.

Students will work with Gabriel House staff, volunteers, and families to address health-related needs utilizing a family systems approach. Assistance with existing programming may include supply distribution (for childcare and basic needs), assisting with dental hygiene or other health-focused workshops, and childcare assistance during family programming. Students may also work with volunteers in a ‘train the trainer' capacity providing culturally-relevant trainings on nutrition, parenting, over the counter medication protocols, etc. Students will work with site supervisor to determine additional needs and wants of community/organization related to health, wellness, and recreational/educational activities. Students will develop plan for additional community offerings and/or community engagement project, based on their experiences and community input. Students will plan and implement this project, with approval/assistance from the site supervisor, in the Spring term.
