Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth of Colorado, Inc.

Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth of Colorado's (SAFY of CO) began providing services in Colorado in July 2014 after responding to the need to serve children and youth sustainably while supporting family or other permanent connections. Our mission of Preserving Families, Securing Futures is accomplished through proactive and preemptive mental health treatment for adolescents and their family system. Your support would further SAFY of Colorado's mission by providing resources to deliver innovative treatment modalities, such as Animal Assisted Therapy and to purchase sensory materials and educational resources that support child health as well as caregiver education.

Third-party Processing Fees

Third-party vendors charge credit card and electronic check processing fees when you make an online donation. Two percent of each donation helps to cover these fees and ensures the program's long-term sustainability. The two percent processing fee is one of the lowest processing fees in the country.

Receipts and Tax Credits

You will automatically receive an on-screen acknowledgement letter and an e-mailed copy for your donation. Every donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent permitted by law. If you make a donation to a charity that offers Child Care or Enterprise Zone credits (additional Colorado state tax credits), Community First Foundation will acknowledge that your donation was processed successfully, but the charity will issue you an additional receipt pursuant to that. To learn more about these tax credits, contact the specific nonprofits.
