About Us

A Precious Child provides children in need with opportunities and resources to empower them to achieve their full potential.

WHY WE EXIST

  • 1 in 6 Colorado children are living below the Federal Poverty Line (Kids Count! Survey 2013)
  • Low-income children trail behind their peers in intellectual development; they are less likely to succeed in school, are less likely to graduate from high school, and are more likely to become poor parents in the future (childrensdefense.org, 2012).

OUR FOCUS

  • Improve the quality of life for the most vulnerable children and families in Colorado by providing them with their basic essentials.
  • Ensure that children thrive academically.
  • Place children and their families on a trajectory toward self-sufficiency.

OUR IMPACT

  • We collaborate with 250+ local Agency Partners to serve the families that are most in need. Our Agency Partners include: schools, health and human services, churches, hospitals, safe houses, fire and police departments, at-risk youth centers, homeless shelters, mental health and foster care organizations.
  • Children and families in eight local counties are served: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, and Weld.
