Children face more than one challenge at a time.
We all know it’s not easy being a kid. But for some, the challenges stack up. Children living in poverty face overwhelming barriers. Many can’t imagine growing up happy, healthy, resilient and strong.
Stress at home and school can lead to emotional and social challenges. Access to healthy food options compounds the problem, affecting performance and behavior at school.
These children often have fewer support networks to help with these challenges. The good news is there are nonprofits to serve children living in poverty, but their approaches are often fragmented.
Families face gaps in services
Hundreds of nonprofits exist to help Colorado’s youth. Most effectively focus on singular issues, addressing one challenge at a time. While the impact these nonprofits is having is substantial, the reality is at-risk children face multiple, complex challenges.
They need support from multiple providers. But going from program to program is a slow process and can leave gaps in care. Making matters worse, their parents don’t always know where to turn for help.
It’s time to rethink our approach.
