FOUR WAYS REALITIES FOR CHILDREN SERVES LARIMER COUNTY YOUTH

 

THE EMERGENCY FUND

Realities For Children provides emergency funding to abused, neglected and at-risk youth in Larimer County.  Funding is available on a case-by-case basis for children’s needs when there are no other resources available, creating a safety net in Larimer County so that our less fortunate children are provided for.  Additionally Realities For Children has become a direct conduit for needed items to benefit the youth served by our affiliate agencies.  If you would like to donate to the Emergency Fund, or to learn more about other non-profit funds we manage, please visit us on the Donate Now page.

 

 

YOUTH AGENCY SUPPORT

For agencies to have effective outreach in the community through annual fundraising events is essential they have the sponsorship support to be effective in spreading their mission and increasing community awareness of their services.  To assist in their success Realities For Children is a primary sponsor for virtually every major fundraising event for abused children in Larimer County.   For a full listing of the local youth agencies that Realities For Children supports, please visit them on the Agencies Served page.

 

COMMUNITY AWARENESS

For people to get involved they need to first understand the issues of child abuse locally.  This is a topic that is not often spoke of, however, for people to become engaged we must speak out and make them aware that child abuse and neglect do indeed happen in our community.  Realities For Children is dedicated to education about both the problems of child abuse locally and the valuable affiliate agencies that serve on the front lines against the affects of abuse and neglect.  Each of us can get involved to make a difference in the lives of children in need!  Through Business Membership, donations and/or volunteerism we can make this community a safer, healthier and happier place for our youth.  For a full listing of upcoming events please visit us on the Events page.

YOUTH ACTIVITIES

Realities For Children is committed to providing monthly youth activities for the children we are dedicated to serving.   The importance of a child simply being able to enjoy being a child is the goal here.  Although these youth activities are designed to provide creative outlets, as well as fun, exercise and entertainment opportunities that these children may not have otherwise experienced,  they also offer cathartic healing.  In addition to allowing youth who have experienced such hardship to laugh and play during difficult times it often teaches them to trust, communicate and work together as well.  Such special opportunities include:

 

    • Bowling
    • Theatre and Shows
    • Drumming Circles
    • Ice Skating
    • Back To School Bingo
    • Roller Skating
    • Pumpkin Patch and Fall Activities
    • Christmas & Holiday Parties
    • Bikes for Tykes
    • Ropes Courses
    • Athletic Events
    • Movie Nights
    • Summer Picnics
    • Ice Cream Social
    • Pump It Up Parties
