With COVID-19 cases now confirmed in Colorado, Hope House Colorado is doing everything we can to help slow the spread of this virus and, most importantly, minimize the risk of exposure to our teen moms and their children, staff, volunteers and our community.
We will continue to monitor and follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE). We regularly follow Jefferson County Public Schools closures; so considering their recent decision to close schools effective Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 17, we are partially closing our Resource Center during those same dates.
Because our teen moms depend on us for critical assistance with food, diapers, wipes and other essentials, they will continue to have access to these necessities through a Grab & Go line.
In response to this serious situation, we have put in place the following measures:
- Group events, including volunteer activities, are cancelled.
- Programs and classes for teen moms and their children are cancelled, except for the quick Grab & Go line for basics.
- Only essential personnel will be in the building to support our teen moms.
- Volunteers are asked to stay home.
We are accepting very limited in-kind donations by appointment only. If you wish to help with diapers, wipes, meal boxes or gift cards for our teen moms, please contact Theresa Mazza, Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, at [email protected].
Hope House’s main priority is the wellbeing of our teen moms and their children. We will also do our part in keeping our community safe and do everything we can to help slow the spread of this serious virus.
We will continue to keep you informed on this website. Heartfelt thanks for your continued support and please stay healthy and safe.
Thank you for your concern and response
We are working as hard as we can to meet the needs of our teen moms during this time. We will continue to provide diapers, wipes, children’s Tylenol, shelf-stable food, and other household essentials. We have also created a crisis fund to meet the surge in financial needs that our teen moms are experiencing. Everything you do to help right now is a huge blessing!
Many of our teen moms have had their hours cut or have lost their jobs. Please consider donating to our crisis fund to help us meet their unprecedented financial needs.
$500 – Provides rent assistance, keeping a teen mom and her children in their home.
$250 – Provides water, heat & utilities assistance, keeping a teen mom and her children safe and warm.

Recurring Gift – Provide budget security to Hope House during this uncertain time by becoming a Bedrock Builder. Your monthly donation will secure the financial needs of Hope House and ensure that we can meet the needs of teen moms during this unprecedented time.
Any amount will provide assistance where most needed as teen moms come to Hope House for daily support!
We have a donation drop-off set up at our front door and are accepting items that will keep our Grab & Go line stocked for our teen moms. We encourage you to purchase items online and have them delivered to Hope House at 6475 Benton St Bldg A, Arvada CO, 80003.
