If you are interested in fulfilling this request, we can send links to potential bikes. Thank you!!

I am currently working with families at the Eloise Mae Library assisting families affected by the early morning fire that took place at Club Valencia. About 100 units have been affected. Cherry Creek Schools has reported 27 students have been affected. This is the second fire at this location since November. We are still exploring all of the needs these families will have. The families were not allowed back into their apartments to retrieve their items. We could really use Walmart and Target gift cards so families can get their kiddos a few items. We could use some donated toys and pack-n-plays. Any help would be amazing.

This is a family of five. This family has a history of being homeless during the pandemic and last year were able to secure housing through a private landlord. They are so excited and relived to be housed and don't want anything to endanger their housing. Unfortunately, the oldest boy is really struggling with his mental health and the family has had to contact the police department (with the crisis team) on several occasions. The family has taken all the sharps and medications and have them hidden for now but really need a lock box to ensure these items are secure for their son's safety as well as for their own safety.
We currently have an crisis clinician meeting with the family working to mitigate the crisis and assist them in getting long term supports and services set up for the children.
