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 life. Such as school supplies, clothing, extracurricular activities and birthday and holiday gifts for a year. For the children who are not school aged, we provide early childhood support and resources to ensure all children have an equal start. 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, Heart & Hand Center for Youth, Hope House of Colorado in Denver, Crossroads Safehouse in Fort Collins and nominated by a staff member. If you would like your agency to be considered for partnership, please email us at Jessica@kenziscauses.org and put Kenzi’s Kidz in the subject line.

Since 2010 we have helped 33 families, a total of 84 children. Leading into October 2018, we will begin helping six families.
In the past 8 years we have impacted our families by helping them work toward self-sufficiency and giving their children opportunities they might not have ever had.

“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
