More About Organization |

Serving north metro Denver for over 20 years, Growing Home is a nonprofit organization that works to break the cycle of poverty by strengthening families, nurturing children and connecting community. Our participant-centered approach fills a critical gap for those who are experiencing immediate and long-term barriers to stability and success. Our model makes us a leader in the two-generation approach to poverty alleviation and community equity.

Let’s take a deeper look at each of our three impact areas - Strengthening Families, Nurturing Children, and Connecting Community.

Strengthening Families

To strengthen families, Growing Home provides a continuum of basic needs support. Our Case Managers help identify root causes, set goals, and develop plans to achieve those goals. Our programs implement evidence-based systems that create paths toward enhanced stability while also enabling the ability to focus on achieving those goals by providing support such as rent, mortgage and utility assistance as well as fresh, healthy foods through our volunteer-run Food Pantry.

Nurturing Children

To nurture children in our community, we help parents acquire the skills and resources they need to ensure their children and future generations are on the path to a brighter future. Nurturing Children includes our Parents as Teachers program, an award-winning program and the largest in Colorado.
Parent as Teachers is a home-visitation program for children prenatal through age 5. Our Parent Educators give parents the tools to ensure their children’s best social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.

Connecting Community

To connect community, we facilitate community organizing, advocacy, and volunteerism. We believe thriving and equitable communities can exist when we tap into the resiliency and leadership of the families with whom we work. By connecting our families, we create a foundation for shared responsibility in solving community problems with sustainable outcomes.

How You Can Support

Here at Growing Home, we envision our community working together so that all children and their families have a place to call home, food on the table, and the opportunity to pursue their dreams.

Join us by contributing your skills, time, item or monetary donations.

Together we can create a brighter future for our community.
