Sox Place exists to bring the Father’s heart to the fatherless, through physical, spiritual, emotional, and social provision to urban youth subcultures.


Sox Place was started in 2002 by father-son team, Doyle and Jordan Robinson. Doyle began his ministry by handing out socks to street youth on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver. He was soon given the street name “Sox” and opened up a daytime youth drop-in center shortly after. We have been open for twelve years and continue to grow every year. We are only able to continue to serve our youth and to keep our doors open with the help of individuals like you. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, click here.


We serve street youth and young adults who range in age from 1-year-olds to those who are in their mid-30s. Many have been abandoned by parents and guardians, some are victims of the foster care system, and most have been tossed aside by society. Addictions to drugs, alcohol, violence, and sex are a part of their everyday lives. Most are just trying to survive!


A hot meal and a safe place are provided Tuesday through Saturday. There are activities such as movies, video games, and pool to entertain the youth during their time at Sox Place. Staff and volunteers spend their time building friendships in order to provide healthy and constructive relationships.



Doyle “Sox” Robinson

Co-Founder and Executive Director

Doyle spent 3 1/2 years doing outreach (handing out socks and got his street name Sox because of that) on the 16th Street Mall before opening Sox Place along with his son Jordan in May 2002. He’s still on course to bring the Father’s heart to the fatherless.

Jordan Robinson

Co-Founder and Director of Operations

In 2002, Jordan helped his dad, Doyle, open Sox Place Drop-In Center for the street youth of Denver. He has been at Sox Place for over 8 years as staff and a board member from it’s founding. He is married and has one child, a son. He has oversight of all operations of Sox Place, including Sox Place Screen Printing.

Kaili “Blue” Bunn


Kaili is our newest staff member and has been with Sox Place as intern staff, part-time, and now she is full time. She is in charge of clothing donations and clothing room, distributing clothing to the street youth as well as other duties such as cleaning and cooking. She has two beautiful children and has a passion to help those less fortunate.

Karen has been a part of Sox Place from the beginning, known as “Mrs Sox” by many of the street kids. She worked full-time for Nicky Cruz for 17 years as his Executive Ass’t.

“Hey man thanks for everything u ever did for me. My life is going great, and u and sox place kept me alive in a time when all seemed lost. Thanks for finding me, I do appreciate all the effort u put forth for those of us less fortunate souls. Not many know the power of a hot meal, and a place to rest as a kid” Brandon, Web Client

“I don’t think that I could be the person I am now or even the mother that I am if it had not been for [Sox Place] showing me what love is and that I do deserved to be loved. To me, Sox Place is family, love, home, safety, security, and sobriety.”

Anonymous, Mother of Four

“I just wanted to let everybody know how wonderful Sox Place is to the homeless youth of downtown Denver. Without Sox Place I have no idea who or where I would be right now. …I was always welcome when I didn’t even feel welcome at my own house.”

‘Cast Away’, Street Youth

“…thank you for helping this ex street kid get food in his belly and socks on his feet, and for knowing that somebody cared about me. Thank you for being there to talk to when I felt alone. Because you showed me compassion and love, I can now show it to others.”

‘Worlds of Color’, Street Youth

“I thank God for [my daughter’s] perseverance daily and for the people like you who sustained her during the terrible times. …please keep loving the unlovable.”

Anonymous, Mother of Homeless Youth
