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-Meal can be set up at House of Hope or GOALS. Alternatively, consider ordering shelter residents a delivered 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, 10 families): 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 Johnna Glover 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: 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.

FABRIC MASKS: We are collecting fabric reusable masks for our shelter residents and team members. Masks can be dropped off at our Administrative Office (3805 Marshall Street in Wheat Ridge) Monday-Friday between 9:30 and 4:30. Children's sizes and styles with ear loops are especially needed. Reusable and single use masks are welcome. Please contact Rebekah Hawthorne with any questions.
