The Prep projects will consist of prepping the project stations for the Service Project right before the project kicks off at noon! We'll be prepping from 0900 to 1200, 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.
