 Organizational Response to Pueblo Chieftain- October 9, 2023

We understand a letter of concern was distributed regarding The Pueblo Rescue
Mission and its operation practices. The PRM board of directors is committed to insuring
it can offer shelter services to those in need. The PRM takes all concerns seriously and
makes every attempt to keep order and promote safety for all who utilize our resources.
The PRM provides services for a population who may be fraught with mental illness and
drug addiction. We must prioritize safety and order, or we face bigger risks to staff, the
community, and our organization.

The PRM is a low barrier shelter and expectation is sheltered clients obey the law and
manage their behavior with respectful, non-threatening and non-disruptive actions. The
PRM is a faith based non-profit organization driven by a desire to show grace and
mercy to the unsheltered of Pueblo. Low barrier shelter means you can come as you
are, and we will meet you as best we can in keeping with the safety of all concerned.
The PRM will do its best to welcome clients and provide the services we can with
the resources and the staffing capacity we have at our disposal.

We face a huge homeless problem as a nation which comes with challenges when
trying to provide shelter services. The PRM Board supports its directors and its staff
with making tough decisions when dealing with situations that arise daily. Our Senior
staff does not practice mistreatment of clients, in fact they go above and beyond to help
whoever comes to our door.

We also encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about the PRM and the
services we provide are always welcome to visit us by scheduling a tour or volunteer to
help through our website. You can also download our Code of Conduct Manual below.

Thank you,
Pueblo Rescue Mission Board of Directors
Leroy Gonzales
PRM Board Chair
