The Prep projects will consist of prepping the project stations for the Service Project. We'll be prepping all day but there's no need to stay the entire time- every little bit helps so come out for however long you can!

Tennyson Center for Children serves children ages 5-18 who have experienced severe abuse, neglect and/or trauma so they can bravely, and safely, change their life’s story. For the past 112 years, Tennyson’s trained professionals have empowered children and families by providing a child-centered, customized approach to healing through our Community-Based, School, and/or Residential programs. In 2016, Tennyson Center surged past 1 million hours per year of direct care to children and families across Colorado. The outcome of this work is considerable, including keeping 96.3% of the kids in the Community-Based Services program in safe homes while in treatment, dramatically reducing hospitalization and crisis stabilization requirements for 83.2% of the children served, while keeping 98% of the kids in school (no expulsions). Tennyson Center works with some of the hardest cases in Colorado, with kids averaging 6-8 foster placements before they even come to Tennyson. Tennyson Center’s results are remarkable, and scaling.
