EarthLinks Participants’ Art Show

Shout out and thanks to all of you who came to the art show last week! Our participants were so amazed at all of the support they received and loved getting to know the people taking their art home. This art show was one of the first participant led events, and it would not have been a success without the love of you all. Stay tuned for more events like this! EarthLinks operates a gardening/craft program and creates community and employment for those who have experienced homelessness. We look forward to seeing you...

Just Like any Other Day

I’m Charles. I was 19 and fresh outta high school when I married my high school sweetheart. We were from a rural town called Middletown in Minnesota. After saving up for a couple of years, we moved to Ft. Collins, Colorado. She wanted to attend Colorado State University for pre-med and I wanted to be by her. It didn’t take long for us to fall in love with Colorado. The views of the Rockies were beautiful and the weather was perfect. I found work at a lumber yard, and we both had demanding schedules so it was really hard to make time for each...

Coast to Coast

Hey there I’m Priscilla. It’s unreal how much I’ve accomplished in the few years I’ve been at Earthlinks. I’m not saying that I’m surprised at how much I’ve achieved, being awesome is just part of the package. I  think being in a community like Earthlinks makes you want to achieve more, strive for more out of life. That’s the incredible thing  when you’re around people who support and believe in you; the things you can do are endless. I was 17 when I first took off from home with a biker guy to travel cross-country. We went from my hometown...

The Words of My Mother

The Words of My Mother

I live my life through the words of my mother. She taught me that by serving the Lord and staying true to my faith, I can look after my family. I’ve gone through a lot of struggles in my life, but without hardship we don’t get to appreciate the wonderful things. Being homeless for so long was one of the lowest times in my life, but with a community like Earthlinks, I can appreciate the love and support that I am surrounded by. I don’t know where I would be today without their help. My name is Kathy, and I was born and raised in Pueblo,...

Everyone in Your Corner

My name is Michael, but call me Mike, it’s easier for the both of us if you do. You’ll see me come into Earthlinks a few times a week. My daily routine goes as follows: I wake up at 4:00 am and get my day going by listening to my international radio stations, especially the BBC. After I make breakfast, and take my insulin. I make my way to the bus station at about 6:00 am. I’ll be at Earthlinks before 8:00 am. It’s this very morning routine that feels unreal to me. A few years ago, I was at a point where I didn’t know if I would ever see...
