72 Hour Fund Colorado

No matter how tough an inmate is inside, the thought of “being on the street” is daunting.

During the first 72 hours after release, ex-offenders are uncertain about the basics of life, such as sleeping arrangements, securing transportation and better clothes. Essentials like birth certificates, social security cards and driver’s licenses seem like mountains to be climbed. Predators selling drugs and offering an easy return to the old lifestyles are everywhere as men and women step off the bus.

Doing HIS Time established the 72 Hour Fund in Denver, CO in April, 2004. 72 Hour Fund offers vital, tangible, hands-on assistance for former inmates to help them take positive steps towards successful reintegration. Clothes, bus tokens or hygiene items are all small “cups of cold water” (see Matthew 10:42) that immediately begin restoring dignity and self-respect. Clothes, bus tokens, job counseling and other basic essentials are available on a needs-driven basis for all who make an appointment.

72 Hour Fund Reduces Recidivism

From 2009-2013, over 1,500 ex-offenders have come through our ministry. Less than 19.5% of men and 12.6% of women who have received our assistance during this five year period have gone back to a Colorado prison.

An Introduction to 72 Hour Fund

Change a Life Today

A visit from a loved one while in prison through our Barn-A-Bus program is like giving a cup of cold water to a person dying of thirst. It will change the life trajectory of an incarcerated woman or man to see their children, mother or spouses. Finding acceptance and tangible clothing assistance through DHT’s 72 Hour Fund has changed the life of more than 80% of inmates who come to DHT. Change a life today by supporting these two programs that are changing lives.
