Family Tree is dramatically reducing in-person volunteers and interns at this time because of the increased risk to an already vulnerable population. Volunteers and interns perform essential duties and positively impact our programs. During this time, Family Tree will be scheduling online volunteer orientations. Please email Rebekah Hawthorne for more information.

How can you help?

Meal donations:

Consider ordering shelter residents a delivered meal—you are supporting the shelter and local businesses. 

To arrange, please contact:
GOALS in Aurora (housing 5 families): Angie Carton
House of Hope in Englewood (housing 8 families): Marla Childers
Roots of Courage (Wheat Ridge area, weekdays only, 6 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 Rebekah Hawthorne to arrange for drop-off, or have them delivered through Amazon.

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.

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.


We are collecting fabric reusable masks and protective gowns for our shelter residents and team members. Masks and gowns can be dropped off at our Administrative Office (3805 Marshall Street in Wheat Ridge) Monday-Friday between 9:30 and 4:30. They do not need to be a particular style, but need to be washable for re-use. Please contact Rebekah Hawthorne with any questions.
