About

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 is a daytime drop-in center for street youth. These range in ages from 12 to 30 and belong to the youth sub-culture known as “street kids.” Many have been abandoned by parents/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 is provided Tuesday through Saturday. There are activities such as movies, video games, foosball, pool and ping pong to entertain the youth during their time at Sox Place. Staff and volunteers spend their time interacting with the youth and building friendships in order to provide healthy and constructive relationships.

Donate a Pack Want to make someone the happiest person on the planet? Donate a pack to a traveler. They have their entire lives packed into these backpacks. We love being able to provide solid, quality packs to those who need them. You can donate here:http://soxplace.com/get-involved/donate/ and specify that you'd like to help us get more packs for kids that need them. You can also donate your own gently used packs for those in need. Check out Sox Place Travelers for more info.
New Bikes Two of our most bike-obsessed kids, "G" and "X", show off one of their new Sox Place bikes. Bicycles are a great way for our kids to get around town, ride to work, or simply appreciate the joy of being on two wheels. If you are interested in donating a new or used bike in working condition, email benten@soxplace.com.

Testimonials

“I don’t think that I could be the person I am now or even the mother that I am if it had not been for [Sox Place] showing me what love is and that I do deserved to be loved. To me, Sox Place is family, love, home, safety, security, and sobriety.”

Anonymous, Mother of Four

“I just wanted to let everybody know how wonderful Sox Place is to the homeless youth of downtown Denver. Without Sox Place I have no idea who or where I would be right now. …I was always welcome when I didn’t even feel welcome at my own house.”

‘Cast Away’, Street Youth

“…thank you for helping this ex street kid get food in his belly and socks on his feet, and for knowing that somebody cared about me. Thank you for being there to talk to when I felt alone. Because you showed me compassion and love, I can now show it to others.”

‘Worlds of Color’, Street Youth

“I thank God for [my daughter’s] perseverance daily and for the people like you who sustained her during the terrible times. …please keep loving the unlovable.”

Anonymous, Mother of Homeless Youth

“If you are looking for a place to get t-shirts screen printed, look no further. Sox Screen printing does an amazing job at a great price and on top of that it helps their ministry! Contact Benten!”
