Through our Family and Children’s Division we have a visitation program providing the opportunity for parents to have court ordered visits with children who have been removed from the home. Not only are these children the victims of child abuse or child neglect, they come from the poorest families in the metro area. These visits are not only a time when the family can enjoy being together, but it is also a time when staff teach parenting skills to the parents.
Our Human Service Advocates are the staff working with these children. They know the children well and are able to give a suggestion for a gift that they know that the child will like. Donors are provided with the first name of the child as well as their age, gender and a suggested gift idea. Gifts are then dropped off at the department and the staff oversee giving the gifts to the children.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 720-944-2485.
To find out how to become involved, please contact us mid September annually for instructions on becoming a Santa.
