    DENVER (KDVR) — Denver released about 190 migrants from local shelters Tuesday, deactivating the cold weather shelter plan now that the temperatures are warming back up.

    Carolina Montilla is a Venezuelan mom who migrated here to Denver with her three children, ages 9, 11 and 12.

    “We went through a jungle, we went through a river, we ran out of food. In one country we were robbed,” Montilla said.

    Montilla said her family made it to Texas where they couldn’t find work and begged to get enough money to come to Denver. NewsNation affiliate KDVR asked why.

    “Because we want a future,” she said. “We want to work.”

    ‘We don’t have anywhere to stay’

    The future is uncertain today for Montilla and her children.

    “We don’t have anywhere to stay,” she said.

    As of Monday, Denver reports it’s sheltered and supported 25,801 migrants from the southern border at a cost of more than $29 million, and some 2,170 people were being sheltered.

    The city has recently changed the length of stay to shelter migrants. For families like Montilla’s, the city said they provide 37 days in migrant shelter facilities and then connect them with nonprofits for long-term support.

    “Not everything has gone the way people think it would be,” Montilla said. “After the 30 days, the city makes us leave. With the kids. They don’t care if it’s cold.”

    For migrants, food banks are a lifeline

    Montilla and organizations like Friends of SoDen echo that this is one of many similar stories of struggle.

    “Last week, they took a 20-day-old baby out of this camp here,” said Amy Beck, with Friends of SoDen, of an encampment in Denver.

    “They’re going to sweep this camp tomorrow,” Beck added. “And so all of these folks will be expected to leave. But also tomorrow, they’ll be turning folks out of the hotel right across the street.”

    With no work and no certainty about where to sleep, food banks have become lifelines.

    “Thank God there are food banks where they give us food, and sometimes we are able to find clothes there as well,” Montilla said.

    Montilla said she’s grateful for anything but hungry for stability: a way to make money, a way to find a more concrete place to lay her head with her children.

    “Help us,” she said. “Open the doors.”

    KDVR shared Montilla’s information with the city and officials said they will try to connect her with assistance.

    Help wanted for Denver migrant sheltering

    The city of Denver is sharing calls for assistance.

    Financial donations can be made to the Newcomers Fund. Donations will go directly to the city’s nonprofit partners, who are supporting migrants with resource navigation, shelter and other services.

    Donations of essential items are needed, but appointments are encouraged. Before donating, individuals should carefully review the donation instructions, wayfinding tips and maps, which are available at Denvergov.org/MigrantSupport.

    To schedule a donation drop-off appointment, call (303) 514-0643.

    Volunteers are wanted — learn more here. Paid jobs are also available for bilingual Spanish/English speakers to help as short-term shelter assistants.

    Too damn bad. We have millions of our own homeless.

    Now these parasites are going to wipe out our Food Banks and TAKE food that is for our poor and homeless!

    Put her on a bus to the Mexican beach resorts, she can go squat in a hotel there.

    Every one of them needs to be deported with their offspring. Where are the FATHER(S)????

    GIVE THEM NOTHING! THIS HAS GOT TO STOP.

    Where is this idiot going to afford housing and a babysitter? We cannot afford to live here.

    Go home and tell your people do not come here!

    NO vacancy.

    What do these morons think? We are going to put them all in hotels here a pay for it out of our wallets? We are not your free travel agent, Motel6, or Uber driver!

    Go home before the 1st blizzard hits.
