4 Colorado Kids Mission

Our mission is to partner in making lives better for Colorado children, so they can thrive and feel empowered to achieve life and academic success.

4 Colorado Kids Vision

We believe every child deserves an even playing field, to have the necessities they need for peach of mind and confidence. This basic foundation lets kids know they are important members of our community.

4 Colorado Kids Organizational History

4 Colorado Kids was founded in June 2017 by a group of local business owners, teachers, therapists, parents and advocates, to help close the gap for local families and children living in poverty.

Many of our founding members were working in direct-care and supported families and children, many times with disabilities. As they provided services in-home or at area schools, they noticed first-hand that basic necessities were missing – such as food, weather-appropriate clothing, beds and blankets, school supplies and other important items, that are critical to the development and growth of a child.

4 Colorado Kids was formed to work one-one-one with families, community partners, health care providers, nonprofits, schools and other entities, to address the needs of children and ensure they receive the care they need in order to be successful.

In order to make the biggest impact and directly help families and kids, WellCare Inc., Pediatric Therapy Specialists, became the corporate sponsor to ensure that 100% of donations and financial gifts directly support kids and teachers living in the State of Colorado.
