Who We Are
A Precious Child is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides children in need with opportunities and resources to empower them to achieve their full potential. In 2019, A Precious Child served nearly 57,497 disadvantaged and displaced children. A Precious Child provides children in need with resource navigation and case management services, as well as basic essentials including clothing, toiletries, school supplies, gifts for the holidays, educational opportunities and access to extracurricular activities that are often not available to children faced with their family’s economic hardship and other difficult life challenges such as abuse, neglect, crisis situations and poverty.
What We Do
A Precious Child sets out to provide disadvantaged and displaced children with “Cradle to Career“ support in order to break the cycle of poverty by reducing socioeconomic inequalities through our five economic mobility initiatives, which include: Child and Family Advocacy, Family Stability, Academic Success, Social and Emotional Well-Being, and Workforce Development. A Precious Child collaborates with over 500 Agency Partners, including public schools, human service organizations, nonprofits, hospitals, shelters, safehouses 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 250,000 children and their caregivers. A Precious Child serves eight counties surrounding the Denver Metro area, including Arapahoe, Adams, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, and Weld.
– As a a single mom, Jessica takes care of her eight-month-old baby as well as her younger sister and brother. Due to the corona virus crisis, she was laid off from her job. Before she reached out to A Precious Child for help, she felt panicked. “How am I going to get my baby what he needs,” she instantly thought. “He needs formula and diapers.” Through a drive-thru distribution, A Precious Child was able to provide her with essential hygiene items for her family. She was also able to get some warm clothes. “A Precious Child made me feel so much better. I know my child and my brother and sister won’t have to go without the things they need. I’m very grateful for all of the items I have received.”
– Melissa, a single mom of four, recently received one of A Precious Child’s emergency kits containing diapers and wipes for her youngest son. It came with a simple yet meaningful message: thank you. She told us it was a relief to receive the items because she had recently lost her job due to COVID-19. “I’m very thankful for A Precious Child. This helps my family out so much because diapers are so expensive. Plus, it’s so hard to find what is needed during this time. Thank you for all that you do.”
