About Us

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


  • 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).


  • 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.


  • 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.
