Sox Place exists to bring the Father’s heart to the fatherless, through physical, spiritual, emotional, and social provision to urban youth subcultures.
Sox Place was started in 2002 by father-son team, Doyle and Jordan Robinson. Doyle began his ministry by handing out socks to street youth on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver. He was soon given the street name “Sox” and opened up a daytime youth drop-in center shortly after. We have been open for twelve years and continue to grow every year. We are only able to continue to serve our youth and to keep our doors open with the help of individuals like you. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, click here.
We serve street youth and young adults who range in age from 1-year-olds to those who are in their mid-30s. Many have been abandoned by parents and guardians, some are victims of the foster care system, and most have been tossed aside by society. Addictions to drugs, alcohol, violence, and sex are a part of their everyday lives. Most are just trying to survive!
A hot meal and a safe place are provided Tuesday through Saturday. There are activities such as movies, video games, and pool to entertain the youth during their time at Sox Place. Staff and volunteers spend their time building friendships in order to provide healthy and constructive relationships.
Doyle spent 3 1/2 years doing outreach on the 16th Street Mall before opening Sox Place along with his son Jordan in May 2002.
In 2002, Jordan helped his dad open a drop-in center for the street youth of Denver.
