Since 2003, The Home Front Cares has raised more than $8.5 million to pay essential life expenses like rent and utilities for Colorado veterans and military families. The organization acts fast, often within 24 hours, because their grants are often the “last stand” that saves a veteran from eviction or keeps the heat on for a military family. Some 75 percent of their clients are disabled, and 70 percent have children to support. THFC relies almost entirely on donations, and money raised in Colorado stays in Colorado.
Kidpower of Colorado is the local center of Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, a nonprofit global leader in personal safety and violence prevention education since 1989. The Colorado Center was established in 1994 to provide comprehensive safety education skills to children ages 3-18 and their families. Kidpower’s mission is to teach young people personal safety and confidence-building skills to reduce their risk of abduction, assault and emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Our programs are known worldwide for being positive, practical, safe and age-appropriate.
Child passenger safety has become one of our missions and by partnering with the Colorado Springs Police Department, Safe Kids, and the COPP program (Child Occupant Protection Program) we can help make a difference in decreasing preventable injuries to the children of our community. With 4 out of 5 car seats not properly installed or used correctly, we urge you to see a certified technician for help. Just by making a simple 30 minute appointment with a certified technician you can learn to install and use your car seat correctly every time you travel. Proper fit and good fit are important for effective occupant restraint use as this will decrease your child’s chances of serious injury or death in a traffic accident by 70%.
