In the details...
A Precious Child is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to making a positive impact in the lives of disadvantaged and displaced children and families in Colorado by improving their quality of life. The 2016 Colorado Kids Count reported 190,000 Colorado children are living in poverty. Children living in poverty are more likely to be in poor health, less likely to graduate high school on time and more likely to live in poverty as an adult. A Precious Child provides basic essentials and wrap-around services to children in need to empower them to succeed in school. We work with over 260 Agency Partners including 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 to serve children and families in eight Denver-Metro counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, and Weld.
