We are in need of your support to set up our new shopping space for Partner families at Colorado House, and to keep it sparkling as we open! We are very excited to get this location organized and ready for families to shop, and will be far more accessible to mothers in the program who need to restock on diapers for babies, food for their family, and hygiene items frequently.

Partner families are families that are currently enrolled in the Partners in Housing program, and often times are single homeless mothers escaping domestic violence situations.
