Making a difference in 2018 and 2019!
Over the past two years we have almost doubled the number of non-profit agencies that refer low income youth to us, served 6.7 times more youth (261), 7.6 times more adults from the Comitis Crisis Center (61), provided 9.8 times more classes (441), and spent 10.8 times more money ($13,191). 61.3% (160) of the youth we served in the past two years had never been in a recreation center.
So far in 2020 96.9 of the 32 youth we have served have never been in a recreation center!
We receive referrals from the Aurora Housing Authority, Aurora Public Schools, Aurora Youth Options, Cherry Creek Public Schools, Comitis (the only homeless shelter in Aurora), the Juvenile Assessment Center, and the Tri-County Health Department. On occasion someone may reach out directly to us if their child is not being seen by any of these agencies. We have never turned anyone away and we are the only non-profit in Aurora that offers this type of service.
We do have a list of other referral agencies that we want to reach out to as our funding increases.
We are definitely making a difference!
