GIVE Denver is a program of Denver Human Services that leverages contributions, volunteers, and community partnerships to bring hope and happiness to foster children, the homeless, and the City’s most vulnerable communities.
Our mission is to instill hope and a brighter future to Denver’s underserved community through donations and the assistance of volunteers.
The GIVE Center is a resource center operated by
The GIVE Denver Center uses volunteer resource navigators to connect underprivileged individuals and families in crisis to necessary essentials like diapers and wipes; shampoo, soap and other hygiene products; and children’s pajamas. To assist our clients we utilize volunteer resource navigators to serve as liaisons between DHS clients and community partners. Our resource navigators also refer GIVE Center clients to community-based service providers, including food pantries, clothing banks, utility assistance, rental assistance and other lifeline resources. Services and donations go to vulnerable children, adults, and families including the homeless, foster children, veterans, at-risk and disabled seniors, and those living on the brink of poverty.
GIVE Denver carries out three annual drives — Spring Showers Hygiene Drive, Adopt-a-Student School Supply Drive, and Adopt-a-Family (Teen or Senior) Holiday Gift Drive — to provide gifts and supplies to children and families receiving assistance from DHS. While DHS’ caseworkers and family advocates partner with the courts, schools, foster parents and other caretakers to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients, GIVE Denver’s drives provide an additional measure of comfort that may be overlooked during times of crisis.
GIVE Denver supports events, campaigns and other efforts to prevent the abuse and exploitation of children, the elderly, and other vulnerable populations; and to commemorate milestones of children and families assisted by DHS, including family reunifications, adoptions, and other key moments. GIVE Denver partners with corporate and individual sponsors to make these efforts successful.
GIVE Denver is supported solely through the use of volunteers and donations, with DHS and the City and County of Denver contributing the 1,280 square foot space and
Monetary donations are always welcome, year-round. Your tax-deductible contributions allow us to meet GIVE Denver clients’ emergency needs on-site if we’re running low on donated goods.
GIVE Denver relies on the support of Denver-area businesses and community members. Donations from these partners support our annual drives and fun-raising initiatives, as well as our daily operations as we serve members of our community.
