Colorado Springs Homeless Being Relocated To Woodland Park For “Spiritual Shelter”
As part of an ongoing mission by a local religious outreach, dozens of homeless have been relocated to Woodland Park as part of the ‘Test Phase” of the relocation program. The program focuses on relocating those that are currently in spiritual distress. Volunteers take the homeless – largely from El Paso County – and drive them to Woodland Park, then simply let them roam free to build a better life with God and the mountains.
The program director Phillip Yomaki stated, “There are hundreds of homeless living in Colorado Springs. Do you know what they do in Colorado Springs? Satan! Well, we don’t have the devil up here in the mountains. So we’re bringing them up here”. When asked about the housing or shelter provided, Mr. Yomaki laughed and stated that there were no plans for shelter and that God would provide for them.

As Summer wanes, the program has moved from its testing phase and into its deployment phase. Over the next few weeks dozens more volunteers will flock to El Paso county and bring hundreds of homeless to live in Woodland Park and the surrounding areas. While there will be no shelters provided, the program manager is sure that the community will provide food and lodging for the new spiritual refugees.
So, as the warm days fade and the snow starts, the Woodland Park community will be welcoming its new residents to our small mountain town.
