What is Kenzi’s Kidz?
In 2010 Kenzi’s Kidz was launched— a program that helps relieve the financial burdens of low-income families who are taking necessary steps to create a stable environment for their children. Kenzi’s Kidz gives the children in these families the fundamental items needed to succeed in school, such as school supplies, clothing, extracurricular activities and birthday and holiday gifts for a year. Currently, Kenzi’s Kidz sponsors six families who qualify for the program.
At this time to qualify for this program, your family must be a client of Warren Village, Rocky Mountain Communities, Hope House of Colorado in Denver, Crossroads Safehouse in Fort Collins and nominated by a staff member.. We will begin partnering with Heart & Hand Center for Youth and their Families in 2017/2018.

“Our quality of life has certainly improved in a huge way. My children and I have choices in the activities that have been offered to us for the summer. We are able to attend the zoo and water parks with guests. Not to mention the clothes that were provided for us. This added to the needed summer wardrobe. As a single mom being able to take my kids to places as a family, and have fun makes us all feel good. This opportunity gave my children the added confidence that we are a normal family.” Marcellina Kenzi’s Kidz Family 2010/2011
