ABOUT PJ DAY
PJ Day began seven years ago, when Denver’s Road Home partnered with the Residence Inn Denver City Center to host the first PJ Party. The money raised goes directly toward fueling solutions to end homelessness in Denver. As we work to move people off the streets and into housing donations support building affordable housing and providing shelter, case management, outreach services, medical, mental health and substance abuse treatment, job training, and eviction assistance to the homeless. On any given night, there are more than 4,000 men, women, children, veterans, seniors and families who are homeless in Denver County alone. Together with Mile High United Way, the City and County of Denver, multiple community partners and volunteers, we can make sure every homeless man, woman and child has a place to put on their pajamas and sleep at night.
