Hey ... do you guys need more supplies?
ESM is grateful to receive a Food Pantry Assistance Grant to purchase Colorado Proud food items.
The Food Pantry Assistance Grant is a product of Hunger Free Colorado’s efforts to increase access to healthy foods for all Coloradans. During the 2018 Legislative Session, Hunger Free Colorado worked with the Joint Budget Committee to secure funding in the state budget to be used for the purchase of Colorado Proud products. Because of the benefit to not only visitors of food pantries and banks, but also farmers and Colorado’s local economy, the funding was strongly supported. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you, First Lutheran Church!FEBRUARY FOOD DRIVE!
One of the most effective ways to feed those who are in need is with a food drive. We need your help to restock Ecumenical Social Ministries (Colorado Springs, CO) food pantry with unexpired, nonperishable food items during the month of February. Especially needed at this time is bottled water, mac & cheese, canned soup, peanut butter and canned meat. Food items may be placed in the thruway (south door, main building, off the alley). No clothing will be collected with this drive.
Thank you for your generous support! ... See MoreSee Less

ESM mourns the death of Mr. Calvin Reeves who froze to death on the streets of Colorado Springs.
Please join us in praying for Calvin's family and friends, and all of those who live on the streets. ... See MoreSee Less
I have heard that beds go unused at places for the homeless downtown. I suggest that the law firms that offer free rides home for people on New Years Eve, Super Bowl, and other drinking occasions make their phone #'s available all over the city for people who need a ride to a shelter. I am sure that the lawyers can afford it.
Thank you for giving him a name.
He will no longer suffer the streets.
RIP my fellow Homeless Human.
this is very sad and may happen to more I have a lot of friends out there that refuse to go to shelters, they compare it to being free and being in prison some feel there are too many rules but sometimes its better to follow the rules then be out in the cold... RIP Calvin you are in Gods house now
RIP my fellow homeless.
Something needs to be done about our Homeless being Homeless
Our deepest condolences and prayers. I remember praying with him approx 3 years ago. He had received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior! No more struggles and pain dear Calvin! 🙋🏽
Peace to you sir. I love the sweet street people. They changed my heart and my life. Thanks for all you do ESM!
Oh Ann Lantz, that makes me so sad! Thankful for all you do out there!
Rest in peace Mr Reeves. Thank you ESM for all you do for so many to help with life's challenges.
Sad news.. My sincerest condolences to Calvins Family and Friends.. Rest In Peace 🍃🌹🍃🌼🍃🌸🍃🌺🍃
So sorry, RIP🙏🏼
😥....i was driving by the shelter yesterday, there must have been 100 people outside waiting to get in
Rest in peace Mr. Reeves. Love, light and prayers to you and those who love and miss you.
So sad, Prayers for his friends and family and those that knew him.
My prayers are with family
Rock in heaven for the gods now brother! Rest in peace!
Prayers for friends of Calvin 😞
Yes, this is so very hard, prayers for all
Reston Peace Mr Reeves.
Heaven just got an angel!
This is just so wrong. I'm sorry he suffered such injustice. It makes me angry to live in a place that doesn't value life 😢
Rest peacefully, dear soul ❤️
Rip dear sir may God guise u in his light Amen 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
He was a kind and gentle soul rip
Just heartbreaking so many prayers
