The children ChildSafe serves are local children; children that live in our neighborhoods, go to our schools and play with our own children. They count on us to help them heal. We are here when they need us and we believe that every child should have access to this care regardless of their financial situation.

Battling child abuse requires a commitment from every one of us.  The journey to healing is a long, daily struggle that we help fight together. ChildSafe is there every step of the way, but we need your help.

ChildSafe has an annual operating budget of over $850,000. Our services are funded through client medical insurance, self-pay, and Crime Victim Compensation. Grants, special events, and individual donations help fund our sliding scale. We increasingly rely on these outside sources of funding as the number of individuals who need our help continues to grow. ChildSafe would not be able to serve all our clients without your generosity.

Your donations help provide the support and materials our clients need to begin a successful journey to healing. We continue to be grateful that the community hasn’t let us down in supporting our mission.

Whichever way you choose to donate to ChildSafe, we thank you for thinking of the children and families we serve! All donations are fully tax deductible.

WISH LIST

Your donations of everyday items help us fill the most immediate needs in our offices and therapy rooms, and greatly serve many of our clients who are struggling to provide for their children.

We are extremely grateful for any of the items you can provide from our Wish List. ChildSafe also welcomes and appreciates in-kind donations of goods, services, and expertise.

Donations are received Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.. at 1148 East Elizabeth Street, Fort Collins, CO 80524. For other times or more information, call (970) 472-4133.
