La Puente is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Colorado's San Luis Valley providing emergency shelter, food assistance, transitional housing, self-sufficiency services, homeless prevention, community outreach services and job training for the homeless and other community members in crisis. La Puente endeavors to meet immediate needs and empower people to live independently, with dignity.
Through a week of service, Trinity volunteers not only physically assist the San Luis Valley community, but they also lift the spirits of those around them, motivating others to make a difference in the world. Along with their service, work group volunteers participate in other educational activities to help them better understand life in the Valley and issues faced by those they are serving. Work projects involve the shelter, community garden, thrift store, the food and clothing bank and playing with kids in the PALS program.
