Colorado Gives Day 2021
Who We Are
A Precious Child is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides Colorado children in need with opportunities and resources to empower them to achieve their full potential. We envision a future where every child grows up to be confident, self-reliant, contributing members of their community.
What We Do
A Precious Child sets out to provide disadvantaged and displaced children and families with 5 Cradle to Career Initiatives that help to break the cycle of poverty by reducing socioeconomic inequalities. These include: Child and Family Advocacy, Family Stability, Academic Success, Social and Emotional Well-Being, and Workforce Development. We collaborate with over 545 Agency Partners, including public schools, human service organizations, nonprofits, hospitals, shelters, safe houses and foster care organizations. A Precious Child supports Agency Partners by filling in gaps in services to provide holistically for disadvantaged and displaced children and families. Since 2008, A Precious Child has provided opportunities and resources to more than 342,000 children and their caregivers and we serve eight counties surrounding the Denver Metro area, including Arapahoe, Adams, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, and Weld.
Our Impact in Numbers
QREM, a third-party evaluator, found that working with A Precious Child reduces a family’s reliance on public assistance programs over time, representing approximately $56 million dollars in combined diverted public assistance dollars for families receiving WIC, TFAP, SNAP & TANF services over two years.
2020 MEASURED GROWTH
A Precious Child helps to strengthen families who face significant barriers. 25% have experienced homelessness with the last year; 88% make at, or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level; 99% fall below the Colorado Self-Sufficiency Standard.
