Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Growing Home is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving children and families in the North Metro Denver community. We serve over 6,000 families per year - more than 13,000 individuals and 5,000 children- with the education and supportive services they need to break the destructive cycle of multi-generational poverty. Our mission: Growing Home guides children and their families on the path to a brighter future. Our vision: Growing Home envisions our community working together so that all children and their families have a roof over their heads, food on the table, and the opportunity to pursue their dreams.
Growing Home transforms lives by Nurturing Children, Strengthening Families, and Creating Community.
Strengthening Families: Growing Home helps parents keep their families stable, resilient and healthy with wrap-around programs and services, including a food pantry, temporary housing for homeless families with children, homelessness prevention, medical services, and affordable or transformational housing.
Nurturing Children: Being born into poverty is the single biggest predictor of failure in school, and children growing up poor have low rates of school readiness. This is why Growing Home offers evidence-based interventions that are proven to reduce the achievement gap between low-income students and their middle-class peers. Growing Home support parents as they learn to be their child’s first and best teacher and give their child the best possible start in life.
Creating Community: Growing Home engages community members, identifies and trains neighborhood leaders, and supports residents as they empower each other to leverage their collective power to address priority issues identified by the community.
Take A Tour: Tours are hosted at Growing Home on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 5:30pm-6:30pm. RSVP at www.growinghome.org or by calling 720-407-1970
