(DENVER, Colo.) Homeless advocator and non-profit Colorado Village Collaborative needs individuals to help construct a new safe outdoor space for people experiencing homelessness.

The new space will sit on an empty lot at 221 Federal Blvd. near 2nd Ave. Volunteers should wear steel-toed boots if possible and bring the following:

  • Drill
  • Drinking water
  • Hard hat
  • Gloves
  • Pencil
  • Tape Measure
  • Sunscreen

In late January, Denver's Public Safety, Education, Housing and Homelessness Committee approved $3.9 million for the collaborative to operate four safe outdoor spaces in the city through 2022, NewsBreak Denver's David Heitz reported.

The spaces consist of durable tent communities with heat and electricity surrounded by a security fence with a locked gate.
