Give!: Ecumenical Social Ministries

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Ecumenical Social Ministries is a local nonprofit providing more than 73,000 services each year to low-income families and homeless people in the downtown area.

One of those services is a new program called the ESM Spin Cycle, an on-site laundry facility where families can wash and dry their clothes for free.

With all these services, there’s a big demand.

“We’ve seen in 2016 a huge increase in the demand for our services,” executive director Ann Steiner Lantz said. “And so we struggle every day to keep enough food on the shelves to feed people, helping people with their rent, their utilities, providing showers, laundry, clothing, and those kind of very vital life-sustaining items.”
