Rural Rehab Center For The Homeless; LGBTQ Inclusive Church; Dance Helps With Brain Injury

Listen Now

The closing of a prison can be a big blow to a town. But when a prison closed in rural southeastern Colorado, the state got creative and turned it into a drug-treatment center for people who are homeless. Then, after months of discussion and prayer, Denver Community Church has changed its position and is now embracing LGBTQ members. The lead pastor made the announcement and then apologized to the gay community. And, people with traumatic brain injuries joined students from Colorado Colege to take part in a series of dance workshops. The idea is to help improve mobility and form social connections. Plus, how repealing and replacing the ACA might affect Coloradans.
