Tough Enough To Wear Pink Northern Colorado
1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Close to 50% of women will skip treatments due to financial difficulties. Tough Enough to Wear Pink locally is helping those who struggle with all of the pieces that come with this devastating diagnosis. With your help we are able to provide financial assistance, covering bills, and helping give peace of mind to deal with becoming a survivor.
Realities for Children
Realities For Children provides for the unmet and ongoing support needs of children in Northern Colorado who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk.
- We do this through our healing philosophy that provides emergency funding for children in Larimer County when all other resources are exhausted.
- We support the process of recovery through youth activities, critical item distributions, and resources to our 38 Partner Youth Agencies.
And, we work to break the cycle of abuse through special direct grant programs and scholarships for the youth we serve.
Danny Juarez Fund
Support underprivileged youth in sports and other activities around Northern Colorado. Recently donated 20 baseball gloves and 5 buckets of balls to the Boys & Girls Club of Fort Collins. Many of these kids that received the gloves haven’t owned a glove. An up and coming boxer out of Greeley couldn’t afford the travel costs to compete to be on a national boxing team. DJ Fund helped this boxer with some of his expenses.
Hearts & Horses
Annual scholarships are given to young women we would like to see continue their education and their vision for a better life. Scholarships are awarded in both traditional and non-traditional areas, such as hairdresser, culinary arts, or other vocations that often do not offer scholarship or grant funding.
Habitat for Humanity
Our mission is to build safe, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with hard-working families in need. This grassroots effort is made possible through the generous donations of materials, money, and labor from members of the Fort Collins community.
Habitat provides a 0% interest loan where Habitat homeowners make a monthly mortgage payment that does not exceed 30% of their income. Habitat homeowners also save a down payment and contribute up to 500 hours of “sweat equity” in the building of their home and at the ReStore.
