Denver Children's Home provides a therapeutic,
safe place for emotionally distressed children,
adolescents and families to heal and grow.
2006: change
Dear Friends,
Many expectations are placed on the shoulders of the oldest child in a family to provide
leadership for their younger siblings. As the oldest non-profit in the state, Denver Children’s
Home has always embraced that responsibility. In times when resources are limited and
stress in the mental health care system increases, remaining focused on our mission to
improve the quality of life of Colorado’s children becomes progressively more important.
This past year Medicaid funding for residential treatment centers was greatly reduced and
the cost of care for these children shifted from the federal government to the state and
counties. Working collaboratively with other providers, as well as the state and counties
themselves, a redesign plan was generated to ensure Colorado’s children continue to receive
necessary treatment. The State legislature agreed to make up the deficit created by the loss of
federal dollars and agreed to hold the counties at their current contribution for two years. In
addition, the State Joint Budget Committee (JBC) charged the Department of Human
Services to work collaboratively with counties and providers to develop strategies that are
effective alternatives to high cost residential placements.
In response to the legislative charge, Denver Children’s Home invested in the development
of initiatives that serve as community-based programs. In 2006, we expanded our Day
Treatment and In-Home services, After-School programming and the Bansbach Academy
School Only program. In addition, to construct a more secure safety net for our children
and families, our staff reached out to the community and brought together over forty nonprofit agencies in East Denver as part of the Family to Family Initiative (F2F). F2F is a
partnership between the Denver Department of Human Services, the Annie E. Casey
Foundation and community providers to increase services to seven designated high risk
regions in Denver. Through this initiative, DCH served more than double the number of
children and families in the community than in recent years.
Building a more comprehensive continuum of care is important but not sufficient to achieve
successful outcomes. Teaming with the Daniel’s Fund, United Way, Denver Children’s
Advocacy Center, and The Child Trauma Academy, DCH is working to develop and
implement leading edge, evidence-based treatment models. These new models will allow
our staff to accurately assess a child and family’s social, emotional and educational strengths
and vulnerabilities to develop individualized comprehensive treatment plans.
Over one hundred years ago the Ladies’ Relief Society, solicited donations from the
founding fathers of Colorado to create a place where children could be cared for safely.
They then challenged the community to continue to support that mission. That safe place is
no longer only inside the walls of the Denver Children’s Home but in your communities,
families and schools. With the continuing support of our private donors, corporate sponsors
and funders, Denver Children’s Home continues to play the leadership role in advocating
for Colorado’s children. Thank you all for you’re on going support!

Denver Children’s Home Foundation
Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. (K.I.D.S.)
Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. (K.I.D.S.), headquartered in New York
City, is a global charity of leading retailers, manufacturers, and licensors of
children and youth products. These products are donated to more than
1,000 non-profit agencies a year. In 2006, Denver Children's Home was
the grateful recipient of over one million dollars worth of children’s and
youth products ranging from young girls dresses to an overflowing
inventory of Nike® apparel.
At the time K.I.D.S. contacted Dr. Rebecca Hea, Associate Executive
Director of DCH, we had no idea the generosity about to be bestowed.
Once K.I.D.S. secured a grant from The Nord Family Foundation for
transportation of the donated goods, children and families across Colorado
felt the generosity indeed. 1,728 pairs of girls fuzzy Uggs® boots were the
first to arrive at the DCH home. We outfitted our residential and day
treatment girls with the fad fabulous boots and were thrilled by their
gratitude. Next, we contacted numerous non-profit collaboratives that
serve the Denver community. “Come and get it!” we said, and they did!
These popular boots were welcomed gifts to girls struggling to fit into their
peer groups. “I love them!” one teen proclaimed modeling her new boots.
“A perfectly timed donation,” according to mothers shoveling through
what turned out to be one of Denver’s worst snow storms.
The next donation was bigger than anyone could have dreamed. 31 pallets,
10 feet high, valued at over $500,000 in Nike® apparel lined the Volunteers
of America’s donated warehouse space. We called out again to our nonprofit collaboratives, “Come and get it!” Without hesitation, trucks, vans
and people poured into the warehouse space and were astounded by the
rows upon rows of clothing. Staff witnessed families and non-profits alike
humbled by the opportunity to give their kids brand new clothes, quite
often for the very first time. Stories of grateful families in need receiving
Nike® apparel were repeated over and over again throughout the day.
“We were honored to facilitate such a bountiful donation and impact our
community so dramatically!” acknowledged Dr. Hea. Kim Davis, DCH
Development staff, echoed her sentiments, “I experienced a satisfaction in
knowing one organization, with our help, can impact so many children, so
significantly, and so immediately.”
We thank K.I.D.S. and The Nord Family Foundation deeply for their
support and creativity in supporting children and families in need in our
Cover Up Total Furniture Rehabilitation
Over the years, John Robbins, President/CEO at Pear Commercial
Interiors and DCH Board Member, has partnered with J.D. Kesling,
owner of Cover Up, a furniture renovation company, to provide high
quality products to their corporate clients. After a detailed conversation,
John encouraged J.D. to tour Denver Children's Home to witness for
himself the desperate need for his expertise. J.D. was the first person to
walk through the home to say “I’ll do it! and he did!” exclaimed Dr.
Rebecca Hea. J.D. and right-hand-man, Lucky Capps, began coordinating
transportation of pieces out of the home to recover, refurbish, return and
repeat the cycle.
“The furniture dramatically enhances the look and feel of the dorms!”
declared staff members. During therapy sessions, kids enjoy getting cozy
on the beautifully recovered chairs and couches. “It makes them feel
special to have someone care enough to initiate such a seemingly minute
detail…a detail that is anything but minute to them,” indicated one DCH
145 pieces have been recovered totaling a donation of over $30,000! It is
the creativity, generosity and initiative of donors like Cover Up that gives
strength to our mission to provide a therapeutic and safe place for our
children. Thank you John, J.D. and Lucky!
Denver Children's Home has been continually blessed over the years with
successful and fun events. In 2006, the Krewe de Colorado threw their
traditional Mardi Gras festival in February, in April we were one of two
featured non-profits at the electrifying CoBiz Inc.’s BizBash. June
brought our annual Mike Betts Memorial Golf Tournament, and Festa
Cornucopia in September were, once again, soaring successes.
The community’s support of DCH through these entertaining
opportunities not only allows you to celebrate the work of DCH but
offers us an occasion to celebrate you! We cannot thank you enough for
your continued involvement! Whether we see you in golf cleats, a Mardi
Gras mask, jeans or a ball gown…we just look forward to seeing you again
in 2007!
Thank you to all of our sponsors!

“...because they are children and for no
other reason they have dignity and worth
simply because they are…”
~ Barbara Coloroso
A Family to Family Initiative
In June of 2005, the Denver Department of Human Services awarded Denver
Children's Home (DCH) funding for the Family to Family Initiative East Denver
Collaborative (EDC) serving all of East Denver residents. This national program was
started by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and adopted by the Denver Department of
Human Services with the purpose of promoting stronger families.
The East Denver Collaborative focused their efforts on proactive efforts to prevent
abuse and neglect, respect families and their culture, and to provide services in the least
intrusive manner possible. By collaborating with over 40 partner agencies, the EDC
spent the first year identifying needs, developing systems, and organizing and delivering
services to families in need in the East Denver area. Services include family and
individual therapy, food banks, substance abuse counseling, health evaluations, clothing
referrals, family advocacy, mentoring programs, family visitation, bilingual services,
college preparation, leadership development, employment services, tutoring, after
school programs, foster care support and more.
This effort has allowed Denver Children’s Home to have a broader and dramatic effect
on children and families in need. In 2006 we provided services to 635 children and
their families – a 241% increase from 2005! “We are proud to be a leader in the
movement for change for kids. Our services may change but our mission remains the
same – to provide what the community needs,” stated Dr. Jerry Yager, DCH’s
Executive Director.
Substance Abuse/Healthy Transition Program
The Substance Abuse/Healthy Transition Program was developed to provide the
children served at DCH the opportunity to openly and honestly address substance use
and abuse. Given the prevalence of substance use and its impact on children and their
families, it has become more critical to address these needs with all of our clients.
Discovery Home was essential to the development of this program. Offering
teenagers without families a safe place to live so they can develop responsible habits as
they enter adulthood, these residents can receive continued treatment and support for
substance abuse issues. Without a stable environment and follow up, the teens
affected by substance abuse might fall into the trappings of abuse once again if left to
their own devices.
With a generous grant from the Daniels Fund, Denver Children’s Home was able to
reach not only all 75 clients receiving services at the Bansbach Academy and Discovery
Home, but an additional 41 clients receiving other services from DCH for a total of
116 clients. This outcome more than doubled the amount of clients that were
originally anticipated to be served through this grant funding. Our next step in the
Substance Abuse/Healthy Transition Program is to build on the program’s first year of
successful work and expand its reach to help more victims of substance abuse.
Why give - For over 130 years, the Denver Children’s Home has been restoring
hope for Colorado’s neglected and abused children. It has provided a safe
haven for these children to help break the cycle of abuse…a place to restore
their childhood…a place for them to be kids again. But Denver Children’s
Home is just a part of the solution. Everyone can do something to help
children. When you help change a child’s life, you help change the world.
Your support to Denver Children’s Home can restore hope to those who
dared not even dream of a brighter tomorrow.

Home. All gifts are tax- deductible to the extent allowed by law.
