True leadership is selfless. It's serving others even when there is nothing in it for you. We take a look at the type of leadership which puts others first, and leads by example. David Warren, the Executive Director of Open Door Ministries in Denver focuses his work, and his life, on helping the homeless and about-to-be homeless. Working with Open Door Ministries since 1996, he has learned about the challenges and obstacles which impact those living on the margins.
On this week's Connect & Collaborate with ICOSA, we discuss who makes up the homeless population, including families and single mothers. We also take a look at ways to help the homeless, from job training, and addiction recovery to after school programs, child care services and housing.
Open Door Ministries operates on a $1.5 million annual budget, serving 572 people in 2013, through Youth Ministries, Housing Ministries, Employment Ministries and Outreach. Your donations are needed to help them continue their mission.
