Make a Difference

“I am very grateful for Project Diakonia and all the things they have done for me. They helped me get the once in a lifetime opportunity to intern with Colorado Springs Utilities and enter a career I really enjoy.”



Be the HERO of a student’s story! Your donation helps disconnected youth avoid, or in many cases, exit cycles of crime, poverty, and exploitation in the Pikes Peak Region.

Diakonia’s 2023 Hero Campaign 

Thank you to all those who contributed to our Diakonia Hero Campaign 2023.

We raised over $39,000!

Unsponsored foster youth, youth in the juvenile justice system, and other young people on the margins of our society are hoping to find a new path forward. Our program equips them with job skills, connects them with mentors and community support, and helps them gain access to living wage jobs. Those who donated helped sponsor close to 10 of these students at the end of last year. The total cost to serve a single student is approximately $4,200 and a donation of any amount helps Project Diakonia empower a young adult to forge a path toward success. 

Thank you to our sponsors for this campaign:

Cadre General Contractors, Art C. Klein Construction, Myron Stratton Foundation, and BuildStrong Academy.
