Trinity's Housing for All Allyship

Our purpose is to influence policy that supports housing for all by:

  • Equipping our Trinity community to engage in Allyship efforts
  • Working with Denver Metro leader­ship to provide improved options for neighbors in need of stable housing
  • Monitoring ongoing housing issues and efforts that we can support

    A Housing Advocate's Prayer

    Trinity’s Housing For Ally Allyship’s co-leader Pam Hubbard offers the prayer below as we continue work during the pandemic to see that all our neighbors are stably housed. It honors the deep need for the integration of both action and contemplation in the lives of Christ-followers. Richard Rohr says “If we pray but don’t act justly, our faith won’t bear fruit. And without contemplation, activists burn out and even well-intended actions can cause more harm than good. In today’s religious, environmental, and political climate our compassionate engagement is urgent and vital.”
