THANK YOU to all who contriubuted to #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5, 2020! Together we raised over $37,000 (with matching dollars being submitted directly to Tennyson) for children and families!
#GivingTuesdayNow is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together – to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal. This is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented needs of many non-profits caused by COVID-19.
Response to COVID-19 Tennyson Center for Children has served Colorado’s most neglected, abused, and traumatized children since 1904. We provide:
• A safe, stable home for kids 5-18 who are facing critical circumstances and need residential care;
• An accredited, therapeutic K-12 school with a 3:1 student-to-staff ratio on our campus; and
• In-home and community services in 25 counties across the state to provide preventative services and therapy to strengthen families with children aged 0 to adulthood.
In 2019, we began leading a statewide effort to provide earlier support to children and families, prevent and divert families from entering child welfare, and to follow the children we interact with into adulthood.
Tennyson Center for Children is proud to be a community organization, serving the most vulnerable in Colorado.
91% of children living at Tennyson have experienced significant neglect and abuse. Families we work with in homes throughout Colorado often lack access to basic resources and support, and sometimes children and parents face separation.
Your support of this oft-overlooked children and families fuels our prevention and healing work.
