The mission of Family Tree is to help people overcome child abuse, domestic violence, and homelessness to become safe, strong, and self-reliant.
Founded in 1976 as a cooperative effort with local government, civic, and private agencies, Family Tree began filling service gaps to abused and neglected children, and families afflicted by domestic violence, in Jefferson County. In order to offer more opportunities for the clients we serve, more than a decade later, we expanded our array of services to people experiencing homelessness and broadened our service area to include the seven-county Denver metro region. As the only organization in Metro Denver working to address the interconnectedness among child abuse, domestic violence, and homelessness, we empower vulnerable populations on a path toward economic success through our programmatic pillars of Child and Youth Services, Domestic Violence Services, and Housing and Family Stabilization Services.
Child and Youth Services: Offers community-based education, treatment, crisis intervention, and case management to stabilize families with children and youth in order to prevent and help families overcome child abuse.
Domestic Violence Services: Keeps domestic violence survivors and their children safe through our crisis line, emergency shelter, safety planning, and legal advocacy, and linkages to community resources.
Housing and Family Stabilization Services: Provides individual and family stabilization services through emergency shelter, our crisis hotline, homeless prevention services, case management, education and employment counseling, housing and rental assistance, along with ancillary support, for people experiencing homelessness or at-risk of becoming homeless.
Through our integrated approach, we offer supportive services to children and their families, and empower thousands of individuals annually to discover their own strengths to create lasting, positive change.
