Info on A Precious Child:
Children in need often go without basic items such as winter coats, food, diapers, hygiene products, backpacks and school supplies as their families struggle to make ends meet. These items are essential for children to thrive at home, school and through their childhood to break out of the cycle of poverty. According to the 2019 American Community Survey, nearly 88,000 children in A Precious Child's eight-county Denver Metro area live below the Federal Poverty Level, but in reality the need is so much greater, as over 250,000 kids in these areas live below the Colorado Self-Sufficiency Standard. Because of our generous donors, in 2021 we were able to provide services to 46,518 children, focusing on Child and Family Advocacy, Family Stability, Academic Success, Social & Emotional Well-being and Workforce Development. However, this still leaves thousands who still need our help.
Our community continues to feel the debilitating effects caused by recent multiple crises. A Precious Child has a long history of stepping up in the wake of disaster. In 2013, A Precious Child served children, individuals and families displaced by the floods. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, A Precious Child has served 42,000 people with over $846,000 worth of covid related hygiene and cleaning supplies. Today, A Precious Child has helped more than 2,800 unduplicated individuals affected by the Marshall Fire, providing them with basic essentials alongside wrap-around services such as case management and resource navigation. A Precious Child is one of the lead organizations working with Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Boulder County to support residents in our community impacted by the recent fires with providing essentials through the Boulder Fire and High Wind Donation and Resource Center.
Your support at this time will ensure that A Precious Child continues to be the safety net for children, families and individuals who are facing unforeseen disasters, families dealing with poverty, children in foster care, single parents, caregivers and those who live in crisis every single day.
