The MORE Life Center is about meeting the basic human needs of people while promoting self-sufficiency and maintaining the dignity of those in need. We use resource partnerships with agencies and ministries that are committed to doing the same in order to meet a wide range of needs.
We view people holistically – mind, body and spirit, while ensuring that we are moving toward specific goals of life development in a personal and relational way.
The MORE Life Center is a community outreach ministry of Colorado Community Church. We are committed to serving the needs of our community and our city in loving, practical and relevant ways.
Hunger and Poverty in Colorado 11.2% of people in Colorado live in poverty. (quickfact.census.gov) 13% of Colorado children live in poverty. (nccp.org) 1 in 7 households in Colorado are food insecure, or food insecure with hunger (USDA – 2011) The number of children living in poverty has increased 85 percent since 2000, with more than 192,000 children living at or below the poverty level. (coloradokids.org – 2009) Poverty in Colorado has increased since 2001. The total poverty rate in Colorado increased from 9.6% in 2001 to 11.4% in 2008. Furthermore, Colorado’s child poverty rate increased from 12.2% in 2001 to 15.1% in 2008, and the family poverty rate increased from 6.8% in 2001 to 7.8% in 2008. As we examine the 2008 figures for poverty in Colorado, we should be mindful of the fact that while Colorado is arguably worse off than in was in 2001, the worst has yet to be seen in the data. A 2009 Point-in-Time count conducted by the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative found that families comprise nearly half of the homeless population. 8.5% of Colorado seniors live in poverty. -
