Our living space impacts everything in our well-being.

For some, it’s more than just clutter - their living environment is holding back their lives and impacting their safety or mental health.

Problem is, not only is it hard to know which neighbors are drowning in a tough season, not everyone is equipped to help.

Led by professional organizers.
Partnered with social services.

We're helping needs-based Colorado Springs residents, who are identified by a social services agency partner, with professional organizing support to help them overcome an overwhelming season in their lives.

Our partnering agencies allow us to reach neighbors who are in the greatest need for organizing support services.

We help conquer the clutter-driven chaos impacting your neighbor's well-being.

We empower clients to live at home safely with professional organizing systems that can continue to improve their livelihood. A safe and manageable home environment has been shown to have a direct, positive impact on mental health and well-being.

All of our projects are referred to us by leading local social services partners.

High-risk clients who would benefit from Sponsor A Space:

     • Sole provider households
     • Those adjusting to a major life event
     • Aging clients 
     • Diabetic clients 
     • Homebound clients 
     • Households with special-needs kids
     • Households grieving a loss
     • Medically fragile clients 
     • High-risk food allergies households
     • Clients managing depression
     • Clients managing anxiety

Meghan Jackson
Executive Director

Meghan believes in the potential of others. Her natural passion for reimagining spaces lead her to helping people improve their lives through peaceful, organized environments.

Her 11 years of experience in social services, with the most notable position being her role at the Department of Human Services (DHS). During that time, she developed a life skills teaching program, built community partnerships, and helped hundreds of community members to greater self-sufficiency. She has a Bachelors of Psychology and Masters in Social Work (MSW).

In 2019, she founded Joyful Spaces, a home organizing business. This career pivot allowed her to embark on her foster care journey, and she quickly realized that this practical support was very similar to her social services experience.

Sponsor A Space is the culmination of Meghan's love of giving, her support of communities, and desire to equip people with tools to develop their own peace and productivity in their daily lives.

She has a Bachelors in Psychology and is a Certified Life Coach. She's also volunteered at many social services organizations such as Stable Strides, Mustard Seed, and Tessa.

Alex Maestas
Board Member

Alex believes in the power of interior design to create peaceful environments. He sees a person's natural needs and then creates the surroundings that help them thrive with others.

Since 2008, Alex has specialized as an independent Interior Designer after attending the Art Institute of Denver. He then became a foster parent in 2010, and has supported and advocated for children in both Denver and El Paso counties ever since. When running a home with 3-6 children at a time, the importance of thoughtful organization, space planning, and intentional design become critical for maintaining a healthy living space.

His attention to detail, eye for design, and ability to support our communities' children, made him the perfect mix of qualities to enhance our Sponsor A Space's mission and values.

frequently-asked questions (FAQs)

Sponsor A Space only accepts applications from our partnering agencies.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
  1. Applicant has been engaged with the referring agency for at least 1 month.
  2. Applicant is in a stable living environment in El Paso County.
  3. Applicant is not otherwise able to afford professional organizing services.

This is not a requirement. What is most important is to get a sense of how clutter and disorganization in their space is impacting the applicant’s life.

The client is required to be present and participate in organizing services. The client and their Professional Organizer will make a custom plan together to declutter and organize one space to make daily life easier. 

Sponsor A Space provides one two-hour follow up organizing session with one organizer to fine-tune the organizing systems put in place.

1. Complete an application with your client.
2. Applications are reviewed the first Wednesday of the month.
Applications must be received by the first day of the month to be considered that month.
3. The referring agency and applicant will be notified within 3 business days if the application has been accepted or not.

People can feel a lot of shame around an unmanageable household. Here are suggestions for approaching this topic:
  1. Curiosity: “I’ve noticed that ____ seems stressful to you.”
     - Keeping track of papers
     - Finding items
     - An overflowing pantry
  2. Empathy: “You are dealing with a lot. It makes sense that ____ feels unmanageable.”
  3. Offer: “Mind if I share an idea? I know an place that offers professional organizing at no cost. They help people tackle clutter and create systems to make daily life easier. Are you interested in learning more?”
*Our website SponsorASpace.org outlines our services for potential clients. We also have flyers you can share with clients.
