La Puente Home
La Puente is our community’s response to address the effects of poverty by providing a safety net of services, where individuals and families get what they need to stabilize, heal, strengthen, and ultimately thrive.
With the objective of meeting the needs of those in poverty and crisis, La Puente’s services both restore and strengthen people’s lives, to empower them to live independently, with dignity.
The La Puente Family of Programs: Providing a Safety Net & Empowering People
Adelante Family Resource Center | Food Bank Network of the San Luis Valley | Outreach and Homeless Prevention Services | PALS Children's Program | VEGI: Valley Educational gardens Initiative | Emergency Shelter & Community Meal | Rural Outreach Initiative | Re-Threads Resource Center | Social Enterprises | Community Education | Volunteer Coordination
Annually over 16,000 individuals and family members receive at least one of our services, including emergency shelter, nutritious food from one of our 15 pantries, housing with support services, youth-stabilization services, homeless prevention resources, soup kitchen meals, home outreach visits, and more.
Each day, La Puente depends on the generosity of those who support our mission. With thousands of hours of volunteerism from youth and adults, patronage of our Rainbow’s End Thrift Stores and Milagros Coffeehouse, and financial support from individuals, businesses, and churches, we are able to provide both hope and vital services when families need it the most. Please consider partnering with us to cultivate a compassionate community.
