Give relief to your neighbors drowning in emotional clutter.

Every second, a donation was made to help a neighbor on GoFundMe in 2021.

Most people want to help their neighbors who are struggling
emotionally, but feel helpless to give practical relief.

At Sponsor a Space, we help community givers make a lasting
impact in the daily lives of those drowning in emotional clutter
through compassionate organizing sessions.

For those who are struggling, the clutter is more than just stuff - it’s holding back their life.

When stuff stops being just clutter and represents pain, Sponsor A Space is here to help.

We break through emotional barriers caused by clutter.

I really appreciate Sponsor A Space so much for coming and not judging me.  This has been an incredibly hard season, and I feel like such a failure.  

Thank you for truly helping us get back some space for my mental health and sanity.

about us

At Sponsor a Space, we know you want to be a generous community member who makes an impact on the emotional well-being of your struggling neighbors. In order to do that, you need to give them practical relief from emotional clutter.

The problem is — not only is it hard to know which neighbors are drowning in their tough seasons, you don't feel equipped to be the one to help them.

We believe that no one should struggle through emotional clutter alone.

We understand that it can feel stressful to want to help, yet feel unable to make a real difference. Emotional pain is so personal and private.

Yet while we can't fix everything, we know that Sponsor a Space provides practical relief through compassionate organizing sessions. Here's how you can join us:

board Members

Crystal Erickson
Board Chair and Treasurer

In her lifetime, Crystal has never been asked to “clean her room,” because she has had the desire to live in a clean and orderly space from a very young age. She experienced the internal peace and serenity that comes from an uncluttered external world, and she believes that the work of home organization is already changing lives. She has worked in social services since 2004 in a variety of settings to include crisis pregnancy centers, a recovery group home for teen girls, a residential treatment for adolescent sex offenders, foster care agencies, and currently as the Program Director at CASA of the Pikes Peak Region. Crystal has a passion to see people live more healthy and whole lives, and she believes that Sponsor a Space will do just that.

Kala Roebuck
Vice Chair

Kayla has a variety of work experience including foster care, Equine-assisted Therapy, and supporting adults with mental and physical disabilities. She is currently working as a Targeted Case Manager for Adult Community Services. She has a Bachelors in Psychology and is a certified Life Coach. She has also enjoyed volunteering with organizations such as Stable Strides, Mustard Seed, and Tessa. Disorganization can have a big impact on mental health. Kayla has used her natural tendency toward organization to improve clients' productivity. She is excited to serve as a board member for Sponsor A Space as it is sure to bring peace to people who could otherwise not access these services.

Katie Ferguson-Glidewell
Secretary

Katie is passionate about being of service to others and is honored to walk alongside individuals in order to foster growth and provide empowerment. She has a Bachelors in American Racial and Multicultural Studies and a Masters in Social Work. Her work has intersected with child welfare to include adolescent casework, serving as Department of Human Services' Liaison for the Community Mental Health Center, providing utilization management for youth in the highest levels of care, and supervising the Placement Team. In 2021, she began as Program Supervisor of Fostering Healthy Futures at Lutheran Family Services. Katie lives with her children, husband and their goldendoodle, where they are in the early stages on their own journey of creating systems to organize their busy lives!  

Meghan Jackson
Executive Director

Meghan has a passion for reimagining spaces and believing in the potential of others. She has a Bachelors in Psychology and Masters in Social Work. Meghan has 11 years of experience in social services, her most formative position being at the Department of Human Services where she developed a life skills teaching program, built community partnerships, and worked with hundreds of people towards their goal of self-sufficiency. In 2019, she looked for a change and started a home organizing business, Joyful Spaces. She quickly realized Joyful Spaces was not too dissimilar from her social services experience. Sponsor A Space is the culmination of Meghan’s love of giving and supporting communities by encouraging and providing individuals with tools to develop their own peaceful and productive space.
