Upcoming Event: Faces of Dignity Fundraising Dinner
Serving more than 70,000 people every year, more than 39,000 people were assisted by our food pantry last year. Nearly 10,000 private showers were taken and more than 4,000 loads of laundry were cleaned free of charge in 2017.
Do You Have Time To Be Part Of The Ministry At ESM?
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.
A collaborative Christian response to low-income and homeless people in crisis.
ESM serves over 74,000 people each year in the Pikes Peak Region who cannot afford to buy food, pay for housing, or find a job. When you donate to ESM, you ensure that a family can provide for their basic needs without having to choose between food and medication, or face having no heat during the winter in order to stay in their home. Your support is crucial to our mission to restore dignity and encourage self-sufficiency for low income and homeless people in crisis.
ESM would not be able to fulfill its mission without the incredible dedication, passion, and commitment of our volunteers. Approximately 130 volunteers work directly with clients or on special projects, helping to keep administrative costs low for the organization. But, we are always looking for additional volunteers. Come join those who are already serving and experience the miracles that happen at ESM almost daily!
ESM provides a collaborative Christian response to low income and homeless people in crisis through a variety of services:
"You do the true work of jesus and helped me and my wife during difficult times. God bless you all"
"Years ago, when I was in great need, ESM helped me. I will always be grateful."
"Exceptional organization providing for the community out of their faith-based principles. None of us are perfect examples of Christ's love but the folks working at ESM are doing excellent work."

I still do not know if he will ever know what he did for me and my baby girl! He was and still is a God sent angel ♡ Thank you ESM for blessing your community!”
ESM comes alive with tears of both joy and despair. It’s hard to…
