why I love this cause
Since becoming a mother I am incapable of even watching a movie where a child is hurt or scared or stubs her toe. I can’t hold back tears when I see or hear about children in need. They are all PRECIOUS. They didn’t ask to be here, but they are here and deserve love and care and the opportunity to grow and be happy. It takes a village. It really does.
PASSION + PURPOSE
+ to bring beauty & compassion into the world
+ sharing and spreading love and support for all children+ create treasured objects imbued with deep meaning
+ contribute to programs that shelter and feed children
IF I Wasn'T a designer I WOULD
+ be a geologist or farmer

CHILD ADVOCACY and Education
A Precious Child assists children and families facing difficult life challenges such as abuse and neglect, crisis situations and poverty. We work with more than 440 Agency Partners throughout eight Denver Metro counties to identify children and families in the most need of our services.
Our core initiatives help build the whole child. In addition to meeting basic human needs through our Resource Center, we also help children and their families navigate community resources. This work is done through our COR (Child Outcomes Resource) Center where our Child Outcomes Advocates provide personalized case management to disadvantaged and displaced children and families, connecting them with needed resources, services, opportunities and educational support.Through four Key Focus Areas we aims to bridge the gap in children’s education so they can become secure, self-reliant, contributing members of communities as adults.
