Volunteers and interns perform essential duties and positively impact our services, and with precautions in place, we are inviting volunteers back into programs. Family Tree is conducting online volunteer orientations at this time. Please email Rebekah Hawthorne for more information.

How can you help?

MEAL DONATIONS: We welcome Cook-a-Meal teams that have been fully vaccinated. Groups of two to four people can prepare a meal for residents in our house kitchens. Cook-a-Meals can be set up at House of Hope or GOALS. Alternatively, consider ordering shelter residents a professionally prepared meal—you are supporting the shelter and local businesses. To arrange a meal or if you have questions, please contact Rebekah Hawthorne.

To arrange, please contact:

GOALS in Aurora (housing 12 families): Rebekah Hawthorne
House of Hope in Englewood (housing 9 families): Marla Childers
Roots of Courage (Wheat Ridge area, weekdays only, 20-25 adults and children): Rebekah Hawthorne
Some of our families are quite large. Please reach out if you have quantity questions.

FOOD DONATIONS: At this time, all food donations must be in sealed packages or professionally prepared. We especially need individually packaged items, such as snacks, which are safer in a group setting. Contact Cindy Gillings to arrange for drop-off.

SHOP OUR WISHLIST: Family Tree works alongside people affected by child abuse, domestic violence and homelessness throughout their journey to safety and economic independence. Unfortunately, this already vulnerable population is at high risk. We are hard at work trying to keep our clients and team members as safe and healthy as possible. Please help us by donating these much-needed supplies and activities. Shop our Online Wish Lists

GIFT CARDS:  Gift Cards allow Family Tree to provide flexible support throughout the year. This kind of support is especially important for those we serve who have experienced domestic violence and often have had limited financial freedoms as a result.

Gift Cards can provide empowerment by allowing survivors and their families to make their own purchases and financial decisions. Gifts cards to merchants that deliver are especially helpful at this time. Local restaurants, grocery delivery, online merchants and Visa gift cards are all needed. Gift Card Wish List.
