Colorado Springs Ecumenical Social Ministries (ESM) was established as a nonprofit organization in 1982 by eight large downtown churches. Considered an outreach extension for the community, ESM responds to the emergency social service needs of low-income, homeless and unemployed individuals and families in Colorado Springs. 


Give a Suit. Change a Life.

ESM is proud to partner with Men's Wearhouse for the 4th year in the collection of men's suits and business clothing during the month of July. Items can be donated at any of the Colorado Springs Men's Wearhouse locations. Watch our website and Facebook page for the date and time when we will distribute these items in the Fall.

"I lost my job and was not able to pay my rent. ESM staff and volunteers reassured me that it was OK to ask for help and helped with rental assistance. Thanks to ESM I am back on track again."

In response to the Gospel, ESM promotes self-sufficiency and restores dignity by providing food, medicine, housing, job placement, educational programs, and spiritual encouragement.

ESM provides a collaborative Christian response to low income and homeless people in crisis.

ESM will comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules and regulations prohibiting discrimination.
