A Precious Child

A Precious Child provides children in need and their families with basic essentials such as clothing, toiletries, diapers, wipes, school supplies, educational opportunities and access to extracurricular activities that are often not available to children faced with their family’s economic hardship and other difficult life challenges. These basic necessities are distributed to families in need through our retail store-like Resource Center, located in Broomfield, or through one of 37 Satellite Resource Centers located throughout the Denver Metro area. Satellite Resource Centers remove barriers to transportation by providing needed resources in locations where clients may already be receiving other services. Thanks to the Women’s Fund of Weld County, A Precious Child opened our first Weld County boutique at the Greeley-Evans Family Center in 2019. In 2017 – the most recent year county-specific data is available –10.6% of children living in Weld County lived below the Federal Poverty Level, however, the Colorado Center on Law and Policy estimates that 31.6% of Weld County households fall below the Self-Sufficiency Standard, meaning they do not earn enough to basic costs of such as housing, child care, food, health care and transportation.

 

The Greeley-Evans Family Center was the perfect location for our first Weld County Satellite Resource Center as it is a community hub for so many of the services families in need already receive. Families in need can shop free of charge in this Satellite Resource Center for necessary items such as clothing, coats, undergarments, diapers, wipes, shoes and hygiene products up to three times per year. Children through caregivers can receive items on each shopping trip. According to the on-site liaison, many of the families served through this Satellite Resource Center cannot drive or do not have access to transportation and therefore would not be able to receive much needed items such as diapers or winter coats if not for this Satellite Resource Center. Thank you to the Women’s Fund for your enduring commitment to serving the women and children of Weld County!

This is an exciting year for the Women's Fund of Weld County as we celebrate 20 years of giving.

We will look back to see how things were done. 

We will look at the present to see how far we have come.

We will look to the future by continuing this mission.

WHY WE EXIST

The Women's Fund of Weld County, Inc. was founded in 1999 by women from the community dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls.

 

The Women's Fund was established with the purpose of creating a permanent fund to find, fund and nurture programs that address unmet needs of women and girls in Weld County to enable them to become self-confident, independent, contributing members of the community. 

 

The Women's Fund is a component fund

of the Weld Community Foundation.
